Default Maya slow

This is a new one! I'm working on a shot that is 430 frames. The first 220 or so frames are just fine. When I get to working on about the last 200 frames it's very slow. I don't get the spinning ball or anything. It's just is very slow to move things around and go from frame to frame. Even slow to move things in the GE. Any idea why only the second part of the shot is acting like that?

what I'm guessing is going on is that something happened when I imported the second part of the animation which falls right in the slow frames. So this file is from two different imported scenes. Not sure what would have happened though because I imported them the exact same way.

Hmm, maybe try exporting the second part of the animation again from the original file, it might be that file for some random reason didn't export properly.
