Davinci Resolve - Laggy timeline with transitions

Recommended Posts

I downloaded Davinci Resolve on the advice from this forum and I hae to say I'm very impressed with it especially for a free program.

 

The only issue I've found so far is that when adding a simple crossfade transition between 2 clips (HD from a GX80) the transition really lags when playing on the timeline. When exporting it renders perfectly so in wondering if there are any tweaks I cam make to speed the timeline up. I have Davinci Installed on my SSD but the actual video's are loading from my standard drive. Ive tried playing around with the Smart cache option but it''s not made any difference. Is there a way to lower the res of the timeline but still render the final product in the original res?

 

I'm using a an i5 4690K (stock speed), 16GB RAM and a GTX 970 GPU. 

 

Any ideas?

I was using the transitions wrong, I didn't realise that you needed to overlap the clips for them. I've found out now how to use them, and also to use the simpler fades, and everything's running fine now.
