Roto brush taking too long to propagate and freeze a 1/5 second clip

Hello. I've been having this issue many times when trying to freeze and propagate a finished roto brushed layer in a composition.

 

It takes up to 8h to finish and it constantly gets stuck and lags on every percent and it annoys me.

It wastes me so much time and i don't know how to fix it. Also the preview window completely went gray when propagating the layer and i can't see it. Propagating is very slow and it takes about 20-30 minutes to propagate a single frame and that can take ages to finish it all so if anyone knows a solution for this and how to possibly make it faster, please let me know!

 

Thanks in advance!
