Clipping linear feature with polygon

Hi All


I have been trying to clip some tracking data to a polygon region of interest and have run into a problem with the resulting clipped track increasing number of vertices as opposed to a reduction. In some cases, a track with 120,170 vertices is increased to 4,886,588 which is unworkable and frustrating. Has anyone else experienced this and if so, how to resolve? I have used both manual clipping (not ideal as I have approx 600 tracks to process) and via model builder, each case is the same. Am using ArcGIS 10.4 and ArcGIS Pro.


Hoping someone can point me in the right direction.
