I recently upgraded to Lightroom CC and noted while creating a panorama it took over an hour to create and slowed my computer down to a standstill, even after closing all other programs. Is this normal or to be expected? Any thoughts on what I could do to speed up the process. Here are the specs:
Computer: iMAC 27 in, 3.2 GHz Intel Core i5, 8GB 1600 MHz DDR3, NVIDIA GeForce GT 755M 1024 MB
Panorama: comprised of 8 RAW photos each approximately 7360 x 4912. Final panorama: 38756 x 5484, or about 200MB.
You're asking Lightroom to do a huge amount of work and use a lot of the computer's resources. I'm thinking that slowing down the rest of the computer is an expected result of executing this task.
