I am working on some stuff for videos I want to make, and am coming close to my goal.

However, after I rendered an intro I made, when I try to scrub or play the image strip in the sequence editor, it runs at about 1 FPS(It was rendered at 24).

  • The resolution is 1920*1080.
  • Windows 8.1
  • 12 GB of RAM with 3000 mb allocated in the system memory cash option.
  • I have clicked refresh sequencer.
  • I opened the strip in both the blend file I created it in, and a fresh one - same result.
  • The images are png files.

Any ideas? If you need more info let me know.


  • $\begingroup$ Are the the images the same size as the desired output? Did you play the timeline once so that the images are cached? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @cegaton Thanks for your reply. Yes, I let it play all the way through twice. And yes, that resolution is my default, so it should output to 1920 * 1080. $\endgroup$
