Markers Apply Slower and Slower the More Markers are Applied
I use the markers panel extensively and I'm noticing recently that as I place more markers, it takes more and more time for the marker window to pop up. I'm half way done typing my marker text before it pops up. The clips I work with are LONG so this delay gets unbearably long. Not sure if this is new with the latest version or if I'm just noticing it now, but I JUST upgraded my CPU to Ryzen 9 3900X 3.8GHz, partially to mitigate this issue, running on an SSD using Windows 10, so it's not a hardware issue. Clean install of windows and Premiere and everything. Help!
But scrolling thru the marker window, no matter it's size is very slow and choppy. Makes my job very difficult! Especially with this top of the line CPU I just bought.
I think I found the source of the problem. I found that when i closed the Marker window entirely, like, closed its tab so that I'd have to go to Window > Markers for it to show again, markers placed fine! But if the tab was in a panel, even if it wasn't open, marking would slow to a halt.
Then I discovered another thing. It's the length of the marker window that slows it down, whether the panel is open or not. I have a 27" monitor and want to see as many markers as possible at one time, so its fully open from the top to the bottom of my screen showing 21 markers. When I drag the panel down to show only 3 or 0, the markers go back to normal behavior.
That marker window is ****! Could it be a GPU thing? I have a GTX 1070 Founders.
I recorded making markers and used the recording for timings, so I'm speaking in 60fps language.
In my test project with a 1080p sequence h.264 640x360 clip out and the first marker I place takes 44 frames to go from pressing M to text box popping on screen so I can start typing.
By marker 19, it takes a full second, marker 20 jumps to 1s 32f, then marker 21 jumps again to 2s45f!
By marker 21 we're looking at 4 seconds. That's where I stopped. It's definitely happening across video projects. Any thoughts?
