Is there any planned fix for the persistent and pervasive slowness in LR6/cc?
It might be persistent on your machine, but pervasive it isn't - Lr 6/CC is much faster on my box than Lr 5.7.1 (fast in its own right) was, so it's not obvious what Adobe would have to fix.
I have to say that only 6gb of RAM is really pushing things though, despite what the system requirements might say.
its not a RAM issue. I have yet to see LR6 use more than 1.2GB of ram during normal operations (not talking about imports or bulk operations).
There's gotta be something else going on.
When I complain about this, I'm not just annoyed that it takes longer to do a few little things or bulk operations.
LR6 is slow to the point of being unusable. I've done about 10 hours of LR6 work in a few catalogs. If I were to re-do all the work in LR5, I bet it would only take about 2 hours. Its just soooo slow!!!
I just don't see how it could slow down so much especially on things that don't even have any image processing. As you can note from my example use case, its just typing in a few words in a catalogue name will freeze for 10 seconds. That's a bug, no doubt about it.
yay!! They updated LRCC/6 today. The slowness and latency appear to be gone!! Yay!!! I can get back to work!!
There was a change with the LR building high quality previews, if you want you can simply reduce them to standard size, that helped me a bit to get rid of the issue. .
1) Go to Preferences.
2) Under 'General' Tab - Click - "Go To Catalog Settings"
3) under the File Handling type - - you can choose the Standard preview size and Quality. Scale it down as per your what you think your system can process.
Let me know if it helps
I checked that, but they were still on standard. I had imported catalogues from LR5.7.1, so I think the settings were still the same from before the import/upgrade. At any rate, today's update seems to have completely fixed the issues I was having.
