Computer getting really slow when working
Hello I’m posting a message here because I’m not sure to understand correctly all the ressources needs for live video.
I’m working on a show with two beamers, each one displaying a 1024X768 picture. They are connected to a Matrox Triplehead digital SE that is connected to my computer.
I’m working with a MacBook Pro 2015 with a 2,5 GHz Intel Core i7, 16 Go 1600 MHz DDR3, a AMD Radeon R9 M370X GPU with two Go of VRAM, and a Samsung SSD 970 EVO Plus 1TB.
I though that this was enough to work for a project with only two displays that are not 4K or even HD resolution.
But it’s getting really laggy when I start working with it. Like the computer is taking long time to perform simple actions like copy a layer, moving a column.
I’m having all the time the message « Your computer is slowing down… ».
It’s pretty hot in the theater I’m working right now so I bought a cooling tablet with 5 fans for the computer but it’s still laggy. I also cleaned the inside of the computer a few weeks ago.
I did everything in the optimize tab, I converted my video to HAP, reduce my picture size and everything.
I’m using a lot of feather mask, I know it can take a lot of ressource, isn’t there a way to render these effect before so it could be easier for the computer to read them ? I’m sorry if this is a stupid question but I’m pretty new to millumin, I’m a sound guy.
For the same effect, would use a timeline instead of creating the effect in the dashboard help ?
Do you have any tips to optimize the project more that what the menu says ? I’ve read the millumin beginners tutorials before but I didn’t found anything.
I attached some screenshot of the system activity monitor, the component temperature.
Did I do something wrong ? Is my computer just not good enough to work on both display at the same time ?
Thank you In advance for everything and sorry for the inconvenience
