    Animators have the option to Cull Update Transforms, which disables transform writing and other stuff when offscreen. This is awesome!

    However, is there a way to manually force this update mode, such as when the object is far away? I'd still like animation to be running, due to animation events needing to be triggered.

    Thank you!

    Probably not, but if you're just trying to save performance you might be able to get something useful by manually updating animations at a slower rate for far away objects.
