So as the new version of LR was released I've upgraded to CC. LR CC was running really slow compared to LR 5.6 so I disabled graphics acceleration as recommended by a few users here on the Adobe forums.
Now I'm having a problem that whenever I start editing in the basic tab on the develop module, LR CC sucks all my RAM (all 16GB according to memory clean/activity monitor) and my CPU goes into overdrive (I clocked it over 400% on average using Activity monitor app). The fans start spinning up and the laptop starts heating up. As soon as I close the develop module it goes back to normal. I pretty much can't edit anything in LR at the moment. Photoshop CC in contrast runs like a rocket ship, with none of the issues described above.
Anyone else experiencing this?
I've had a look at limiting the RAM usage for Lightroom but there doesn't seem to be a menu option for it.
apple systems work like starship enterprise?.. at 400%... wow.
scottie more power...
