I'd do a Consolidate to the Library to verify everything is actually inside the Library, and not stored externally.

The solution is easy, and you're actually 90% there.

Create a Pop-Up menu Rig. You'll set each menu option to turn on and off each layer's Opacity as needed. Name each menu item in that rig. Done.

Ben Balser replied to the topic 'Does having too many plugins slow down FCP?' in the forum. 4 days ago

It's not how many, but specifically what plugins. Especially third-party plugins. Which ones are you using? Some can be very processor intensive.

Why are you using Compounds to create a Multicam with? That just seems so weird...

Not to sound harsh, but honestly, if a simple double-click is too time-consuming, well, I'm not sure what to tell you.

HSL or luma masks are dynamic and don't need tweaking, thus if an arm passes in front, no, you don't need to touch a thing. And it's a step that takes 2 minutes. A fraction of what the rest of the process will take.

From personal experience, I'd say it's the compound clips slowing things down. If you weren't using compounds, the process would be much faster.

Cord is white as white can be against that almost black background, easy to mask out with an HSL or Luma keyer, using a cloned copy above the original. Movement would be kept in tact.

I see the angle commands listed in the CommandPost setup for Stream Deck. But yeah, you'd probably want to use CommandPost for this.

I did a tutorial about creating swinging panels in Motion years ago. This is the same effect, but you'd set the panel itself at zero opacity, leave only the text visible.

Ben Balser replied to the topic 'Compounding multiple audio clip slowing down FCPX' in the forum. 6 days ago

It may not be the compound clips, although too many can cause issues. How many compounds are you creating in one project timeline? Why so many? More details about what you're actually trying to achieve would help.

Snapshots should not cause any slowdowns at all.

What third party plugins are you using?
