We describe two mechanisms, rendering task scheduling and the render cache, used to optimize graphics rendering in a scenegraph to provide continuous visual feedback and high interactivity in large-scale sketch-based user interfaces. We have implemented these mechanisms in SATIN, a toolkit to support development of sketch-based user interfaces. Our experiments with DENIM, an early-stage web site design tool built with SATIN, show that our changes significantly improve performance.
