Ripple delete very slow

danjb Posts: 15 Just Starting Out*

I am editing some game footage (1080p, 30fps). The timeline is about 30 minutes long and includes a lot of cuts (on average let's say 1 cut every 5 seconds).

Whenever I perform a "Ripple Delete Object" or "Ripple Delete Gap", the operation takes about 3-5 seconds to complete. If I select multiple clips and ripple delete the selection, sometimes it can take 12 or 15 seconds to complete and the whole program freezes while it's processing.

Here are my specs:

  • Windows 10 Home 64-bit (10.0, Build 19041) (19041.vb_release.191206-1406)
  • Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz (8 CPUs), ~2.6GHz
  • 32768MB RAM
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070
