    Mac LR 6.3 Performance Problems 10.10.5 on iMac 5K

    MarkRomine

      I've been trying to find a solution to my LR speed issues for about two months now. I get frequent spinning balls when working in the Develop module.

       

      Machine Specs: iMac5K, 4Ghz Intel i7 processor, 32GB ram, ADM Radeon R9 M295x Vid Card.

       

      OS 10.10.5

       

      LR settings: Use Graphics Processor is checked

       

      Previews: Set to Standard and Build Smart Previews

       

      Cache: Set to 50GB on an external SSD Raid 0

       

      Files: Principally Nikon D750 RAW files
