[Ardour-Users] Slow graphics with large project

Hi all,

I'm currently mixing a film in Ardour 2.12, around 50 Tracks, each 1h40 
long. When zooming in, Ardour sometimes (not always) slows down to a 
near halt, using 100% on one core. I doubt there's much I can do about 
it now, but perhaps future versions could be optimized for handling huge 

Playback (on 24 simulateous outputs), recording (Through a digital mixer 
to 6 tape tracks) and MTC/MMC work perfectly, despite over 60GB of 
audio, it's only the graphics giving me problems.
