    CRAZY slow updates when dragging keyframes. Beach balls all over.

    spdorsey6969 Level 1

      I"m developing a simple 1920x1080 comp that has a few 3D layers
      (4, all bitmaps or solids), a camera, and (so far) very few key frames. It also uses a track matte in 1 place.

      When I drag an item in the window (using xyz handles) or a keyframe in the timeline, the Mac goes into a holding pattern (beach balls for about 30 seconds) while AE tries to update the frame. If I make the change numerically, the change is instant.

      I'm using CS4 on OS X 10.5.7 on a brand new dual quad Mac Pro 3.2GHz with 12GB RAM and a Quadro FX 5600 video card. The system is about 2 weeks old and the AE install is brand new (2 days ago).

      any ideas here on how I can improve performance?
