When I'm trying to manipulate templates, they play so slowly on my computer. We have fast Mac Pros. What can I do to make the graphic play in real time?

Motion leverages the GPU on your graphics card so that is the key factor in performance. Upgrading the card can help quite a lot, but depending on the project, you may never be able to play back in real time without first rendering (Command-R). Lowering resolution and/or quality and soloing layers can help.

I've also noticed that having motion blur on can REALLY slow things down. Lights, reflections, stuff like that also slows it down quite a bit.

Yes, very good points. Motion blur in particular is a killer.

It's the infamous Mark Spencer! Great website ripple training.com and the others.

I remember you had a video where you briefly addressed it. It would be helpful for you to make a video all about soloing channels and the like. Thanks,

Bobby
