New Computer Slowing Down Harmony Files

Hi all,

I recently purchased a new computer and reached out on another forum to find the best fit for my needs. I was pointed to the Eluktronics Max-15

I checked all of the processing/system requirements to run Toon Boom posted here and everything seemed to match up, if not exceed the requirements.

Fast forward to now, I’m trying to work on a project with multiple layers and frames, but nothing too overly complex (no rigs and no extensive use of effects/nodes, just some frame by frame animation) and I can barley bucket fill a frame without it lagging.

Is there something I missed in my purchase? Is there anything I can do to fix this? I’ve tried restarting multiple times with no luck. My old computer model worked like a pro but supposedly was less competent than the one I’m using now.

Thanks so much for the support, I look forward to any sagely advise I can get!

EDIT: I’ve found that bucket-tooling and toggling frames works fine in the line-art layer, yet ungodly slow in the color-art layer. is there a reason for this or any way I can speed it up?
