Could not agree more: managing complexity may start with avoiding it, sez I!

And thanks for the tip regarding the number of cores with respect to the amount of ram: of course each core needs their own ram allocation.

Just to be clear, the main reason for this tracking work-around, which is to copy tracking from the same clip in a different project, as opposed to simply tracking it again in the original project, is that the original track effort fails due, mainly, to overall sluggish performance on an admittedly already overly creative clip grade. Then tracking the same clip in a new project, without all of that exuberance, yields a fast, reliable track. Then that fast, reliable track is copied to the sluggish exuberant project.

But by winning this battle one can lose the war.

True enough, this project, though successful is so many ways--six to nine masks, many independently tracked, in every clip in the timeline, with other gradations and color adjustments to sky, overall vignettes, etc.--there must be a better way to apply all this goodness to a single clip.

The good news is that Resolve itself is so excellent at color.

But the burgeoning size of the project literally causes it to fail under the weight of its own success in applying so many adjustments.

Must be a better strategy to grade and apply multiple masks with tracking; that is, some way to create them independently and then assemble them. Minimizing interaction. Then easy to tweak each one as needed as they are assembled.

Thoughts anyone?

Thanks, guys. Mike
