    Sticky Playback in 2018.8

    I have NEVER had this issue with any version of Avid going back to 1998. I am editing and playback of the timeline is sticking and will then catch up to itself. This is in draft mode thru full green playback mode. It happens while playing back a timeline or in Full Screen Playback mode. It also happens when I mix down the sequence.

    I have done nothing different with this laptop except upgrade the software.

    Why is this happening? It's pretty bad trying to tell a client that the stutter really isn't in the sequence once it's encoded out.

    What resolution? what storage drive (and how is it connected)?

    What OS are you running?

    Avid is continually adding more and more functionality and that has a hit in terms of the demands of the system as well as the OS.

    The new live timeline means more resources are needed. YOu may have reached the cliff edge for your system.

    Re: Sticky Playback in 2018.8

    I use Windows 7: HP Zbook 17 G3 Mobile Workstation, Intel Core E3-1535M Quad Core 2.9GHz, 32GB RAM (4x8GB), 1TB 7200RPM HDD, M4000M Video - 2018.8

    I have a WD my passport hooked up to the laptop for media as usual.
    I imported HDV footage which converts to MXF. Basic resolution 1920x1080 MXF. Nothing heavy just a few push effects, some BCC wipes. I'm thinking maybe rolling back to 2018.1? Or maybe even back farther.
    Being onsite in a hotel room with clients looking at the edit...this is not encouraging.

    I have had the same problem with a time line heavy in effects (spectra matte and fluid morphs) turning clip frames off and reducing the video quality menu to half speeds things back up.
