Hi folks - I've noticed on some of my compositions that fps is slowing right down (below 10fps sometimes) after a period of between 20 and 40 mins. I'm using quite large decks (c40 columns, c5 rows), but nothing massive. I use quite a lot of effects, applied to rows. If I re-start Avenue, it takes a while to go down and come back up again, but then it's fine for a while.
I've done everything suggested: all files are dxv, reduced rows, cut clip length, reduced effects, got separate account with not much launching etc.
I'm on a macbook pro, 16mb RAM, 2.7ghz i7, lots of disk space etc. etc.
Quick question: does Arena improve performance? I may well have to upgrade anyway, even if I solve this issue.
