Animated Materials turned on causes CPU usage of 30-50%

Scene/Game View


To reproduce:
1. Open any project
2. In scene view either turn on effects, or under effects turn on Animated Materials
3. In Activity Monitor check Unity CPU usage

Notes. With an empty project CPU usage jumps from ~5% to 30%. With simple cubes in it it jumps to 40%-50%.

This is not a bug but a limitation of the feature. We can't easily know if the scene has animated materials or not, so we have to busy-repaint the scene always when animated materials is switched on.
