So I had a shot that I had to clean up due to some traffic driving by. I'm still new to different methods of removing unwanted objects in a video, but in my case it seemed like the appropriate tool to use. I have a total of 223 clone stamp strokes. I used each one on by single frame, not constant so that there would not be a build up of data for each frame. But, it seems that no matter the method, clone stamp just slows my system drastically. I do not have source overlay enabled. Is there a way to speed up the renders or is this just the price of using clone stamp?

Yes, all brush tools in AE get slow as molasses after a while. Render an intermediate file and reimport it to continue work, if things get unbearable with the first iteration...
