scene or VD main loop



Sometimes you can do things in a (LUA) scene or in the main loop of a VD. I know that programming differs a little on some items like HTTP but in general you can use the same code.

Currently I have a VD that reads a json file from a PI, stores the acquired data in global variables and presents the data in the VD GUI. Next I have a scene that processes the data from the global variables  and does some steering of dimmers.

Is this from efficiency point of view a good method? the alternative is to put all the calculations and steering which is now done in the scene, in the main loop of the VD.


is there a general rule that the processing in a scene is less or more cpu intensive or generates less or more overhead than when done in the main loop of a VD
