If I have a large video I am going to edit and add effects it can slow down a bit. I have found the best thing to do is cut it into smaller sections and make each it's own project. Then add all of the effects to each smaller vid and render before mixing together in a new timeline. Adding text and color and stuff makes the GPU work much harder, by rendering smaller vids it becomes part of the vid and becomes easier to process.
