# The playback is very slow

Once Node Video has created the RAM preview, you'll usually get real-time performance on a second play-through.

How to improve preview speed

  • High resolution videos(>=4K) will hurt the preview speed
  • High bitrate videos(>=40000 kb/s) will also hurt the preview speed
  • You can use "Prefetch" to boost the previewing speed. Please refer to Use Prefetch to Edit Fast
  • Recommend FPS not to exceed 30

Check if advanced features are used

  • Optical flow will hurt the Previewing & Exporting speed greatly
  • Too many effects will also reduce the preview speed
  • Time remapping that have reverse playback will also be very lagging

# Crash

Most crashes are caused by insufficient memory. We will keep optimizing this problem.


  • Try replace the high resolution videos in your project with lower ones
  • Try reduce your export resolution.
  • Try reduce the overlapped layer count

Be care of the **Optical Flow**

This feature is the killer feature of NodeVideo but it does not support on most of the devices and causes crash!
