Here’s a link to a 7-minute screen shot movie showing my wrong-headed approach. It’s on my site, I vouch for the file. Try refreshing the page, or right-clicking and going directly to the MP3 file URL if the video doesn’t load up.
I’m trying Ebosuite as a video editor for a movie made out of a 400 Jpg files, just crossfaded one to the next. The movie will be about 15 minutes long when it’s done. Ebosuite works fine, but it doesn’t scale up to that many eSamplers-inside-drum-racks very well.
I’ve got an 18-core iMac Pro with 128 GB of RAM, running Mojave and Live 10.1.
The first part of the movie shows a set with about 150 slides in it – which takes about 8.5 minutes to load and puts Live into a pretty-high CPU state.
I thought maybe splitting the drum racks up might make things go easier and the second part of the video shows that it doesn’t really – 64 eSamplers spread across 16 tracks of drum racks takes about 3 minutes to load and still makes Live work pretty hard.
Does anybody have suggestions? The workflow is…
- string 400 JPGs end to end with crossfades
- create a composition to complement the slides
- adjust sequence and timing of slides (and the timing of the music)
I could use help with either:
a) reducing the CPU footprint of my Arrangement-view workflow, or
b) stringing together 400 eClips in Session View in a way that allows me to adjust
the overall length of the video and the music at the same time.
