When I add behaviors or animations, the video doesn’t play back smoothly, and I’m not confident the resulting video will be smooth.
Improve the smoothness / power of the editor so that animations are rendered smoothly, so that what I see in the preview window will be what I get when I produce
Jittery and stuttering has been reported with some features such as behaviors but also in other cases as well. Our goal for editing and preview experience is “what you see is what you get.” When there is stuttering or jittering in timeline or preview, users, understandably, lose confidence that the product will be smooth. We have this on the backlog for a future development cycle to smooth out editing and preview experience as much as possible.
With the projects we have coming up in the next couple months, I really hope this fix is followed through and applied. At the moment I have to literally rend the video (up to 30 minutes)......watch to see how elements line up........go back and edit to and take my best guess on how to adjust.......re-render (again up to 30 minutes)....watch rendered video.... go back and edit to and take my best guess on how to adjust.......re-render...you get the picture.
In a project with loads of behaviors this can take what should be a 4-5 hour project (with what you see is what you get in the editor) to a couple day project as it is now.
SORRY but it is really bad software!
We're continuing to look at how we could hand preview performance. If you continue to experience issues please contact our support staff and let us know as many details about your experience as possible.
