    Clips Chocking in 2.5

    by jean-louis » Fri Jan 19, 2007 11:29 pm

    The very same clips that work perfectly on the previous version are chocking on the new one.

    I use Powerbook 1.64 runing OS Tiger

    What happens?

    I too find that the new version is slower than the previous ones. Just a couple of movie clips loaded and they start to stutter. Anyone else ?

    Me Too.

    I just upgraded to Tiger and launched 2.5 for the first time. I loaded a set and it was the worst performence I have ever seen.

    I've not been so lucky. I dragged a handful of clips into a new project and it still choked.

    Chokes here too. Check your memory usage - use 'activity monitor' and report here what the application's actual/virtual memory usage is. Mine pretty much saturates memory with only a handful of short clips, which isn't supposed to happen.

    None of the 2.5.x versions have worked well for me; on long VJ sets I still use 2.0.2.

    Same here - 2.0.2 on an iBook G4 OSX 10.4.8 is the only sure way at the moment for me.

    2.5.0 & 2.5.2 both choke very quickly, 2.5.2 can even get hung up totally and resists force quitting with a vengance.

    I've just finished a week long series of workshops with M8 in action all day every day -
    on tuesday & wednesday afternoons the last group of the day had every layer of their set 'lock-up' in 2.5.0.
    The other layer sets they had ready to go also showed 'loading' but never did.
    Thursday and friday have gone swimmingly on 2.0.2

    What the heck is beta 3 ??

    beta, version 3. (versions before official release)

    Did some 9 hours gigs with it without problems. Got a big one 2morrow. Still not sure with one to use. I think the first official release of 2.5 seems okay... 2.5.2 is :evil:

    If someone has the answer which one is the best, please post it !

    So that's what beta means, thanks, I had been wondering about that for ages! :D

    Just for interest, why are you using a 'version before official release' which I guess must be 3 years old now?
    Didn't we get version 1 of Modul8 in the middle of 2004 or something?!

    If someone has the answer which one is the best, please post it !
    Somebody did - either go with answer one:

    None of the 2.5.x versions have worked well for me; on long VJ sets I still use 2.0.2.

    or answer two:
    2.0.2 on an iBook G4 OSX 10.4.8 is the only sure way at the moment for me.

    Beta is not here of course after an offical release,,,,
    I found out it was no difference about the versions 2.5./(beta whatever) or the official release 2.5.0
    It was about running 2.5 on a old not intel imac machine. There are more posts about this on the forum..
    cheers RR
