Timeline lagging when editing/viewing
Hello all. I have this issue in Storyline where the time line play head doesn't seem to align to the correct place in the time line when I play the slide from the timeline when editing, if that makes sense. I have had quite a bit of exposure to video editing with various packages and when editing you can play a section, adjust an asset and then move the playhead back again to re-play that section to ensure the assets are playing in the correct order or their time is correct, with no distortion in timing. It seems that when I do this though, the play head plays well ahead of what I am watching on the screen. It seems to get worse the longer I try to get it right. So when I re-adjust, it actually places things out even worse and it just seems to multiply. Something that should take 30 sec's is taking me hours.
I had SL1 intially and used a work computer and thought it was the RAM. I assessed it and it was fine. CPU, well it went to 100% when meeting with zoom effects, of which I have heaps in the slide/project. The project is a screen recording for using software. I now have another laptop and SL1 seemed to work ok but I just upgraded to SL2 thinking this would occur, but it does and now as bad as before. I have attached new computer specs that are similar to the previous computer.
I could have had this finished ages ago if I used seperate screen recording and then video editing software, but I want to get used to SL as I can see the benefits if it worked as it should. I'll find it hard for work to up spec machines in the current work climate and I wouldn't get this on the other software, so there must be a reason other than the machine. HELP...
