in response to your forum post:
>If you start Modul8 without a document and you drag only one movie, do you have the same problem ?
no, the startup is fast - it's when i load a project in that it takes ages. single clips load fine and play fine.
>If you apply an auto-rotate, is it slow ?
>Is the user-interface slows (moving sliders, etc.) ?
yes, and no.i have installed some more memory on my laptop since i discovered the problem. i used to have 512mb - and at that stage literally everything came to a halt. i wasn't even able to quit modul8. none of the menus were working. now i have 1.25GB and it's certainly alot faster. the user interface seems to be responsive now, but while the clips are loading the playback rates is very slow and unpredictable.
i have discovered another problem i believe to be quite severe - something i never noticed with the previous version. when i use the transparency slider to mix layers i find that a clips that had been set to full transparency appear momentarily stationary when i fade them back to visible. i do this kind of mixing very frequently so i find this is a real problem for me
