Navigation sluggish after 3.1 update

Just updated to Switch 3.1 from the Mac App Store and file navigation has become extremely sluggish. Jumping to a timecode or clicking somewhere on the timeline takes 5-10 seconds to process. This occurs with different file formats, both local and remote. macOS 10.11.6.

  • ProRes (including 444, 422, Proxy) is the worst offender. Sometimes jump-to-timecode doesn't even work. I've also tested H264, which behaves a bit better but navigation is slower than the previous build. Jump-to-timecode is a hit or miss.


    Thanks, I've submitted a support request.

    I'm seeing the same issue with 3.1

    Behavior is the same with DNXHD too. 


    Even stepping thru frame-by-frame is extremely sluggish. Hitting play after pausing usually brings on a few skipped frames and putting the audio and video out of sync.

  • I reached out to support a few weeks ago per CraigS's instructions, and they confirmed the seeking/navigation issue in 3.1. It sounded like a fix/update was imminent, but I still haven't seen any update in the Mac App Store.

  • DC-W Trevor  we are working on improving this. Sorry for the wait. Generally the update on our website happens a little before the MAS version because the store version has to go through Apple's approval process.

  • Any update on this? I see that the non-MAS version of Switch has been updated to 3.2, but I am still stuck on 3.1, because I purchased my Switch Pro via the Mac App Store, and it has not been updated to 3.2. The scrubbing sluggishness is killing me!

  • Mel Matsuoka you can download the trial version of Switch from our site and test. Put the App Store version in a folder to keep it safe from being overwritten.

  • Mel Matsuoka always good to look at our release notes to see what we've fixed. I always post the release notes shortly after an update so user can read through fixes and enhancements.

  • CraigS I'm aware of the Release Notes...I was just wondering why the MAS version has not been updated? I purchased the MAS version for the convenience of using Switch on my workstation in my office, as well as on my home machine when I bring work home with me.

  • Mel Matsuoka Alas the MAS version is in the hands of Apple. They have an approval process so sometimes that version is delayed. I'll see if I can find any info on the delay on that end.
