    I am using Silverlight 4, ASP.NET 4 and the latest Telerik Silverlight controls.  I have a transition control that transitions to an animated chart.  Everything work fine if real time but as soon as I try to render a 3D chart by adding the following, it crawls to a noticable hault for 10 seconds:

    chart.DefaultSeriesDefinition =


    new Bar3DSeriesDefinition();


    Is this normal behavior?

    Hi Jeff,

     Currently Silverlight doesn't support accelerated 3D graphics and this is the cause of this performance hit when using 3D chart. The transition control also makes some serious calculations for transitioning from one state to another and combining these two leads to this performanse hit. If you need real time user experience consider switching to our 2D chart.

    Kind regards,
