This is a problem in the latest version of 20.5v of Animate CC.
CPU- i7-8700 3.2GHz
GPU- RTX 2080
When I copy and paste a symbol or object, a lag occurs.
From the previous version, there was a loading time when copying and pasting symbols with many original frames, but there was no loading when copying and pasting regular objects.
However, in the latest version, when I copy and paste a light symbol or a single object, a lag occurs.
After testing, the more objects in a project, the longer the loading time when trying to paste.
When copying a simple image using Alt, I have to wait too long for loading. This is very inefficient.
The video below is a video recording the experiment of copying and pasting group objects, drawing objects, and symbol objects in various situations.
Frame/layer copy or duplicate, move
They all have the same loading time.
One peculiarity is that when I click on the object and use the'distribute to layer' function, the work is done immediately.
Similar to this, inserting a frame or keyframe into a large symbol or object is done immediately. (No loading)
It seems like a heavy loading occurs when you duplicate something on the clipboard.
I don't know why this suddenly happened,
We hope that optimization will be done as soon as possible.
I have the same problem too and i have gone back too the older version of flash/Animate now (20.0.3). it's weird seeing the older version works like butter after using the up to date version of Animate for so long.
hope this will be helpfull information:
iMAC (27-inch, Late 2012)
Prossesor: 3,4 GHZ Intel core i7
memmorie: 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675MX 1 GB
Here is some Recording tests i did in the past when the problem occured
Same Problem. I always like to keep all my adobe programs up to date but Animate always seems to be the exception. With every update I don't get anything new and a lot of things break 😕
I've went back to 20.0.3 and the performance is better.
Windows 10 Pro 64 bit
Intel Xeon E3-1230 v5
Radeon RX 480
Here's video evidence of Copy and Paste being slow
My God, thank you so much!!!
I am so happy that this problem has finally been solved.
It now uses the latest update feature and can smoothly work with heavy project files.
Thank you again.
I love you Adobe Animate CC Technical Team XD
