I’ve just upgraded to 9.5 from 9.0.1 and was trying out the ‘upgraded’ video engine with side-by-side comparisons on identical projects. Basically I get a minimum of 30% extra CPU load in 9.5 whenever the video window is loaded. In fact just having the video window open with no video track adds 20%! So scoring to picture is out unless I roll back to 9.0.1 or buy a video playback plugin, unless anyone has any ideas on how to improve the performance?
Also, I have the FPS counter on (GTX 970 card) and the video window is constantly running at 120fps or above, could this have anything to do with it? And if so, how do I go about restricting the frame rate?
