Hi,

I would like to know what are the differences between reduced and non-reduced serialized objects, and also why shouldn't we use reduced objects on desktop program ?

I've noticed that when I use a reduced object on desktop, loading time is faster and the serialized object takes less memory on disk than both obj and non-reduced serialized object. And it works great ! So why should I avoid using it on desktop ?

Thanks in advance, cheers !

The reduced format misses some data that the desktop version needs when using the software or the hybrid renderer. As long as you don't use those, you might be able to get away with it even on the desktop.
