Extruded ELLIPSE vs CYLINDER performance in cesium entity/czml

1. A concise explanation of the problem you’re experiencing.

has anybody experience with PERFORMANCE tweaking when either using extruded ellipse or cylinder - etc - would one being better than the other?

superficial observation on iPhone iOS13 finds that the extruded ellipse variation would crash (easily)

although i would assume that extruded ellipse would provide better performance - just a hunch :wink:

2. A minimal code example. If you’ve found a bug, this helps us reproduce and repair it.

no code needed i guess

3. Context. Why do you need to do this? We might know a better way to accomplish your goal.

4. The Cesium version you’re using, your operating system and browser.


thanks for any experience/insight shared!
