    Spinning Rainbow

    I am editing in a 720 59.94 project.  All of my footage started in a 1080 23.976 project (it was all transcoded to DNXHD 115 MXF), then I opened the bins into my 720 project (the format that my piece will air in).

    When I scroll around fast in a long clip, I get the spinning rainbow ball.  Sometimes I crash, sometimes it just takes some time to catch up.

    What is making my system less responsive?  

    I have the latest version of avid and Apple OS X.  I use a promise pegaus R4 drive with thunderbolt 2 and an aja io4k output device.  64 GB RAM.  Mac Pro Late 2013 - 3 GHz 8 Core.  AMD FirePro D700 6144 MB

     

    I created new user settings and threw out my old ones.  Anything I can do to help?

    Not sure if this will help, but look for Fast Scrub and turn it off if it is on.

    Did you check the boxes to convert the audio too when u did the transcode? Avid behaved as u described for me when I would trancode footage but not check the two audio boxes to also have them transcoded.

    I turned off fast scrubbing.  I am done for the night, but will see if this helps during my next session.  Thanks!

    I did check the 2 bottom audio boxes before hitting transcode.  I always do that just in case it makes a difference.

    Re: Spinning Rainbow

    Part of me wonders if this has something to do with my video capture card (IO4K).  I wonder if it's been updated to work with the latest avid and os X?

    Re: Spinning Rainbow

    Simple test - Disable Hardware.  This will let you know if the IO card is causing issues.

    Good luck,
