Went from Pro 2021.1 to 2021.3, and with RAM preview gone, "timeline cache" is S...L...O...W
Hi all. Likely there is something I am doing wrong. I'm known for my "operator error" stuff. 😉
Prior to doing this last Point Three upgrade, I used the RAM preview a LOT when working. I do a lot of detail type stuff... and keep the resolution up to see what I am doing. So dropping the quality of the "working images" is not really a useful thing for me much of the time. I need to see the more subtle details of the edge of the mask, or the way the effects is appearing. Stuff like that.
When I compare the "timeline cache" rendering and the RAM preview situation... it SEEMS to me that for the same project that the cache approach is WAY slower to give me what I need, at least for me. Seems to have slowed down my workflow. I'm working on a scene shot that I started out working on in the older version... and now am working on it in the new version....so the "speed" comparison is somewhat apples to apples.
When the timeline has not cached, .... the playback goes in HUGE big "jumps" like a series of still images selected in series at random spacings from the progression of frames. Didn't do that before.
Machine specs are Asus Prime Z390 Mobo w i9-9900K Coffee Lake @ 3.6 G, 64 GB DDR4 RAM, 1 TB Samsung SSD as C (OS and programs):, 1 TB SSD as D: (video project stuff), LG Bluray burner as E:, 4 TB SATA HD as F: (archive storage), RTX-2080Ti 11 GB video card, in a Thermaltake full tower with 1000 W power and both fans and liquid cooling. Windows 10 Pro with all updates in place.
Any thoughts on this? Appreciate the help in advance.
