I'm just noticing than all controlls related to the set points or center points ( crosshair ) that are supposed to be adjustable with the mouse are slow , sluggish, and unresponsive.
I haven't had any issues with this.
Mac OS X 10.6.6
To clarify ... is seems to happen with all center and corner set points related to any video effects that are adjusted via keyframes. ( Motion )
The numbered index that can be controlled by a click-hold mouse command seems to work fine .. and doesn't product the same effect.
I have restarted, reloaded, re-edited .. and cleared the media cache.
The Activity Monitor lists 150% CPU use while this occurs.
PP is also unresponsive everywhere while the adjustment plays 'catch-up'.
Just tried this on my Mac laptop and had no issues.
Thanks for checking.
How can I get some help with this?
The unresponsiveness of this makes it unusable in a workflow .. and this is my 4th week with consistent CS5 issues.
I can't crop a clip that rotates or the crop rotates, I can't crop a Transparent Video ( for some unknown reason ), and the Adobe Forum Solution is to use a 4 Point Matte ... which won't click-hold drag without a unresponsive motion problem.
I have found a possible culprit:
The Click-Hold Mouse creates a repeat-keystroke like function whereas clicking and holding repeats the same mouse coordinates over and over so fast that the buffer reservoir gets overflowed .. and the machine can't dump the commands until they are all exhausted.
It doesn't happen to your laptop cause it's a much slower machine.
I found it out by using another input device .. which showed the additional commands long after the mouse commands were initiated.
There is no way to adjust this on the user level. ( Apple System Mouse Control Pane ? No. )
Can Adobe address this within the next update?
Is this a specific mouse that is causing the problem or is it related to your CPU hardware?
Is is the sample rate at which Adobe CS5 tracks the mouse coordinates.
Since CPU speed has increased over the years .. so has the data thoroughfare per sec.
Nobody had the foresight that the mouse 'repeat' would fill a buffer beyond the response time for a command.
There is nothing via Apple System Preferences to adjust this for Adobe. It must be corrected in a CS5 update.
Repair Code would pertain to ' decrease mouse click-hold repeat key to 5 samples per second. ( or less ) '
It is currently much higher .. would be interesting to know how much .. especially on a fast machine.
I just tried on several different computers, and I can't reproduce what you're seeing.
What mouse are you using? Is it something special/non-standard? Is it a Wacom mouse? (I only ask about Wacom because we had a problem quite a while ago---in After Effects CS4---regarding Wacom drivers), but that was fixed by both a Wacom update and by a CS4 update. Try updating the device drivers for your pointng device(s).
If the problem persists, please submit a detailed bug report.
Yep .. a Wacom tablet ( Graphire ) .. and a regular mouse fixed the problem.
I have the latest Wacom drivers.
I contacted Wacom tech support and the reply:
"As for the bug with Adobe, it's not something I'm familiar with. Perhaps it is something that is still being looked into currently by the engineers. Or it is an incompatibility issue with one of our older tablets that no longer exists with the newer models."
Trying to double-click in certain windows .. as well as click-hold-drag do not work with the Wacom Graphire tablet I have.
