LR 4.1: Still takes 10 minutes to import pictures if an avi is involved

Mar 30, 2012 10:25 AM

Also with LR4.1 the problem with avis (Canon Powershot Ixus 95IS) is not yet solved onm my system (AMD 6 Core, Win7 64Bit, 8GB RAM, ATI HD 5770 graphics card).


AVIs don't play when I want to start them in my LR3 converted catalog. Importing avis in a new catalog doesn't work at all. But the worst thing is, if you try to import pictures in a catalog already containing avis (or if there any avi is present in a folder you want to synchronize) it takes 10 minutes.

The processes dynamiclinkmanager and dynamiclinkmediaserver are blocking the import for several minutes. Killing those two processes helps (as workaround) to import pictures, but this is not a final solution.

    I had the same problem.  .AVI files would not load or import in LR4.  After uninstalling DIVX the issue is now resolved and its working again!  This took forever for me to discover.  Probably should be listed somewhere in the list of known issues.


    I'm running LR 4.1 RC2

    AMD 6 Core, Win7, 64bit, 8GB RAM, ATI Radeon HD 4250.
