    Is MC's UI snappy for you?

    I've come to accept that Media Composer is a little slow. It can't keep up with me. I'm a fast editor. But I always get ahead of my own keystrokes. I'll make an insert edit, and I have to wait anywhere between .5-2 seconds before the edit happens.

    Does this happen for you? In Final Cut, Resolve, or Premiere, this is not an issue.

    I wonder if it has to do with the project being hosted on shared storage. I'm using an Avid-certified computer. A Lenovo P710 with a Quaddro M4000. 

    The footage is 1080p23.98. 

    There is nothing terribly taxing about the work I'm doing. 

    The project is also pretty small. 

    Any thoughts on this?

    The storage is a 10Gb connection to a Studio Network Solutions 8-bay EVO with Avid bin-locking emulation.

    it varies for me by release, but 2018.12.3  has been super snappy and responsive for me.

    Wireless keyboard with the receiver plugged into a USB port. No mouse. Wired Wacom tablet. 

    I have no latency with typing or other keystrokes in the OS.
