Is there a way to disable lightroom 4 from importing or processing any file with a video extension mkv, 3gpp etc, as its really slowing down my workflow.
My typically workflow consists of pulling my files off of my memory carsd manually via explorer (into a specific folder under a root folder which I create manually). I then synchronise the root folder in lightroom.
Unfortunately LR4 seems to take over and hour to do this since I have a lot of uncateloged videos. LR fails each time to catalog the videos.
LR3, since it didn't support video, was blazingly fast and performing the same operations in LR3 takes minutes as oppose to hours.
you can not disable the video import or disable video support altogether... afaik.
and unfortunately you can´t exclude them when synchronizing a folder (i have the same problem).
but you can exclude videos from import easily. at least that. no help for the synchronize problem... i know.
press the ALT key and you can select/deselect all video files in the import dialog.
Thanks but that doesn't really fit my workflow as I tend to like to manage the folders etc and periodically sync.
Adobe really need to get this fixed Lightroom 4 or 4.1 is not fit for purpose wrt to Video support. Did anyone from Adobe actually sit down and test their synchronisation algorithm and the control paths un these situations. Performance is dire....
