    Performance Issues - Avid Slow

    Hello,

     

    I am having some performance issues with avid in that its very slow to open a project, creating/renaming/moving bins takes a very long time as well. 

     

    I posted a question on here a week ago and someone suggested that I clear the attic which didn't make a noticable difference. I found a post where someone complained about a similar thing and he was told to try making a new project (and just move the bins over), strangely this did actually work for a few hours but then when I loaded up the new project the next day the issue had returned.

    I had a look at avid console and noticed that when I open the project it gives an error message "WARNING: Requested LocateBuffer size 2048MB is the same as current size 2048MB.". I assume this issue probably relates to the problem I am having.

     

    My specs are as follows:

    iMac Pro (2017)

    Processor 3.2 GHz 8-Core Intel Xeon W

    Memory 32 GB 2666 MHz DDR4

    Graphics: Radeon Pro Vega 56 8 GB

     

    I'm working on version: 2020.8.0.55115.0

     

    Thanks

    Hi Doylw,

      What mac OS version are you running? Here is a related post in the Community.

    Does your sequence contain lots of Titler+ titles?

    I discovered on a very caption heavy project recently that Titler+ really hurts performance, with the sequence regularly taking seconds to play/pause or perform any actions with, and a lot of spinning beachballs.  Fortunately I'm still running Mojave and when I started replacing the captions using the old title tool all the performance came back and the timeline and project became super snappy again.

    This might not be your issue but it's worth looking at.

    Hi Ralph,

     

    Thanks for getting back to me, I'm running Catalina 10.15.2.

     

    I did see this thread but thought it was strange as I've been using this project on two computers with similar specs and the issue only seem to be on one. Also the fact that I got the project running smoothly for a day but then it went back to being sluggish.

     

    Thanks,

    Thanks that's an interesting point, there are some titles but not lots of them.
