My one big hope for N6, and biggest, most frustrating issue with versions 4x and 5x:
As a large editing project develops, and various clip processing is applied, save time increases, often to an intolerable degree. Many of us have experienced this problem… though in my search here to avoid redundancy I haven’t seen anything about this specific cause.
Trashing the cache files gives blessed relief for the the time it takes for them to rebuild, but the only cure I’ve found is to bounce all edits and trash all unused files in the pool.Of course, that means saving multiple versions of the project as it develops, which is a huge waste of space.
It’s a real buzz-kill, not to mention time-waster; plus, due to the lag between hitting “save” and the indication that processing is going on, if you’re working fast (which some of us like to do for professional reasons, right?) and happen to get trigger-happy while the process is going on, chances of file corruption are significant. Just happened here-- I’m about halfway through a 30-hour project.
I understand that autosave does it faster… but do we trust it? I had to go back three .bak versions before I found one that worked. Not a confidence-builder.
Seems like a good place to apply some creative resources. Anybody else still aggravated by this?
My vote: please fix for N6!
