red MSG warning

Postby PeteSfz » Thu Aug 18, 2016 05:12

Hi there,
Has anyone else experienced this little warning light flashing. It's in the lower section of the screen?
It seems to indicate low PC resources or something similar.
It's accompanied by audible clicking on playback.
If you click on it it goes away, and the clicking stops.
I'm running project 48k, 24 bit with about 40 audio tracks, half a dozen plug ins, and imported .mov video clip.
I've tried increasing both the mass core allocation, and buffer size, neither made any difference.

You don't say if you using Mascore or native.
Either way, that is a Masscore or processor DSP overload.
What is the MOV encoded in? h.264?
I've found that the merging video playback engine is much happier with ProRes because it takes less processing power to display. (Just a lot more Disc IO...)
All the best,
