    Folks, Motion has gotten really bogged down to the point that it’s choppy moving layers left or right. This is only about 2 minutes into the project; 14 groups, lots of layers. These are things it should be able to handle.

    I’ve turned off certain rendering features (like shadows, reflections, etc.) and reduced playback quality. As a test I copy/pasted one group into a new project and it moved smoothly in the new project. So it seems that this project file alone is the problem.

    Do you have any suggestions to get performance back being able to move items around smoothly?

    As a temporary work around, do you regain performance when you toggle layers/groups you’re not working on off?

    I actually had all of the layers and groups of the most graphic, animation, and video-intensive portions of this project I am working on disabled when I posted this.
