clipping linear tracks

Hi all

 

I have an issue when trying to clip linear tracking data with a polygon area of interest. The problem is why in some cases, the tracks I am clipping end up with vertices at all linear intersections  which is not what I want, and in some cases, I have tracks ending up with millions of vertices. This is easier to see in the following graphics:

 

Unclipped track:

Clipped track:

So, my question is how to stop these additional vertices from being added (or is this something inherent in the geoprocessing algorithm and I have to live with it)

 

I could of course manually edit these tracks but this will be massively time consuming.

 

Any ideas would be gratefully received, unfortunately I cannot share this data.

 

Best regards,

Mark
