    MC2021.2 - no realtime playback with Titler+

    Hello,

    we're having realtime playback issues with the Titler+.

    We have a certified MacMini (macOS 10.14.6) with MC2021.2, project is 1080p25, DNxHD LB and a simple Titler+ title on a simple clip and the title doesn't play in realtime (red bar in sequence). I checked video resolution, render settings, possible background processes and and so on, no abnormalities.

    On an 2013 MacPro with the same macOS/MC-version the title plays fine but when I disable GPU rendering in the settings, it's the same issue.

    So, Titler+ titles rely on GPU rendering? And if I have no GPU, only onboard, on a certified machine, I can't use them properly?

     

    I tested the same sequence again on an iMacPro (10core) with MC2021.6 and even with disabled GPU it's playing fine. Stronger CPU? Bug-Fix maybe between 2021.3 and 2021.6? I didn't read anything related.

     

    So we updated the MacMini to MC 2021.6 and it plays fine with enough preroll until we have for example two titles or a video effect on the clip beneath the title.

    Pretty poor performance in general and very unstable conditions for our clients.

    Luckily we stick to macOS 10.14.6 and can give the possibility to use the old titler.

     

    Can somebody confirm? Or is there a setting to improve performance? Is it a Bug?

     

    Thank you in advance,

    Doyle

    I'm also getting very slow playback performance with Titler + on my windows based system. I constantly render my Titler effects... It's annoying :/
