Hello,

Actual the UI is very slow and has reproducible roll over effects in large windows. But facts at first.

My environment is a Mac Pro with two 6 Core Xeon CPUs and 48 Gb RAM.
Installed is macOS Mojave and a screen size with 4K.

The delay is available in standard procedures like mark large wave parts or simple scrolling to the next position. It takes one or two seconds before the final position is reached. It is a pain during detail editing of a wave.

It is ok with a horizontal window size of 1024px, but painful with a size bigger than 2500px.

Second point is, that the blue cursor line will stop at the last 10% of the window-end during the play.

From my point of view Amadeus Pro (Version 2.6.2 (2217)) has a performance problem with large windows in a 4k editor environment.

Perhaps i didn't considered some configurations, but i considered 8192 Mb RAM and for tests the double size without any improvements.

Do you have a solution for me?

Best regards from Germany

Hi, what does it say when you hit the '0' key in the main sound window?
Regards,

Martin

I see in the top left corner the note "Cocoa", but no improvements, no other effects. Same situation.

This means that it is not making use of the Metal framework for graphics acceleration.

There appears to be a bug in Mojave that prevents Amadeus's Metal code from running on some older hardware. Catalina appears to fix this problem on all machines I was able to test it on or get feedback for, so upgrading to Catalina will probably fix the display performance problem for you.

What are your precise settings for "Playback behaviour" in the "General" preferences?

Thank you Martin for your support. I will wait with the Catalina installation, till the first bugs will be solved and my audio hardware is supported.

Empty Selection = Play from the beginning
Not empty selection = Play selection

By the next three options, only "Screen is following the playback" is marked.

As additional information, the blue cursor line will stop for three seconds before it will reach the end of the screen, but the playback is not affected. It is only a visual effect.
