    Long time to load Multicam sequences on ISIS 5500

    Hi everybody,

    we’re experiencing very long waiting times to load 16-way multicam sequences (about 6min to load a 30min sequence).

    Slowness happens only the first time we load the sequence, in fact if we switch to a different sequence and then go back to the previous one load time is very fast (30sec)


    Just as example:

    • Load Seq-A (6min)
    • Load Seq-B (6min)
    • Load again Seq-A (30sec)


    Performing a Clear Bin Memory will cause again the slowness:

    • Load Seq-A (6min)
    • Load Seq-B (6min)
    • Clear Bin Memory
    • Load again Seq-A (6min)


    Load times are always good when ISIS workspaces are unmounted.

    Any ideas or possible workaround?

    Hi Dario. I moved your question here into the ISIS 5500 forum. I think you'll get many more responses. If you don't, ping me and I'll put it back into Getting Started forum. OK?

    I encourage you to upgrade the ISIS system director 4.7.11 and use the NEXIS 7.2 client.

    Are the projects stored on an ISIS workspace? If so, try moving the Bin Indexer from the Project folder to a local drive. [view my complete system specs]
