    I have been trying to get my game running smoothly on my laptop so I can playtest it.
    I noticed in the profiler the biggest issue to improve framerate I am having is related to cinemachine. So I wanted to come on here to ask if there was anything I could do.

    here is a screenshot of the profiler:

    As you can see the cinemachinebrain.afterphysics() call is causing most of my problems. It's getting called 10 times which doesn't seem right to me. I currently have 4 cinemachine freelooks in the scene, with two of them disabled at all times (It is a split screen game so there are two cameras and two cinemachines running at once at all times)

    If there is anything I am missing to improve the performance or if you require any code, please let me know. And thank you in advance.

    Try build game, and see, if you will have same issue?
    Also, if you can post you laptop specs.

    So After checking the specs of everything, I updated to cinemachine 2.2.8 from 2.2.7 and it seems to have fixed the issue. Also, I couldn't seem to recreate the issue after it was built. I will answer the questions below anyway, just in case you need it for future reference.

    Specs: core i5-7300U
    Intel HD graphics 620

    Unity: 2018.3.0f2

    Cinemachine: 2.2.7 (Updated to 2.2.8 which seems to have fixed the issue)

    Thanks a lot for both your help!
