Posted there too but no responses yet.


I'm halfway (10min) through an edit (1920x1080); I created proxies for all my video clips and that more or less worked until now; playback was still choppy at points, but think maybe I got away with it because the 2x speed fx uses fewer frames. Now that I need to edit a clip at just regular speed, playback is too choppy to see what I'm doing. I've rendered the audio fx; I also rendered the video fx, though I didn't see any loading/processing pop-up, so it's unclear if it worked. I don't think I have an SSD, only regular C/E (boot?) drives and an external hard drive. Would appreciate further help, thank you.
