    Terrible Multicam performance (MC 2019)

    I don't work with multicam in Media Composer very often, but the last few times it has always worked pretty well performance-wise. With my current project however I'm having huge performance problems when working with multicams. I'm using 1080 DNxHR LB proxies. The last time I could playback a nine-split without any problems.
    This time I cannot even playback a quad-split. Has anyone else performance problems with multicam in MC 2019? Any idea why this is happening?
    With Premiere and Resolve I can playback a nine-split without a single dropped frame (using the same media as Media Composer). Perfectly smooth playback.

    To be honest, Media Composer has become a real pain to work with. I'm spending more time dealing with weird bugs, unintuitive workflows and bad performance than actual editing.

    Try increasing your video Media Cache to MAX in settings.  Also check your Nvidia card settings and drivers are correct too.

    Thanks for the reply ShadenFreude!
    I was able to figure out the problem. It seems that something went wrong whith relinking to the proxy files. Although the group clips were linking to the proxy files, the clips that were placed in the timeline were linking to the original 4K footage.
