Loading Audio and sluggish interface
Sep 06, 2012
I put sounds on all my slides at the start of my project. Now I'm going along scene by scene, slide by slide to add the content. When I come to a slide I haven't worked on the sound layer timeline will show a "Loading sound" message instead of the waveform.
That loading message seems to be there for a long time. I just checked two of them and it took about 1 minute 45 seconds to load each sound. (The sounds were 12 and 17 seconds.)
I'm wondering where the sounds are being loaded from? And if that is a normal amount of time for the process to take.
I'm asking also because I'm finding that interface is a little sluggish. There is a long (in user-interface terms) gap between selecting a menu and the action happening. I've restarted my machine to see if that helps.
My story file is about 31 MB, has 6 scenes, and 23 slides. Each slide has a sound object (running from a few seconds in length to about a minute.) There is a 6 minute video in there and a couple of imported swf files. A goodly number of imported png photos, but I'm only about 10 slides into the deck.
I'm wondering if putting the audio in has slowed it down?
