When I first load Lightroom CC (latest version), the program loads fast and everything seems wonderful,,, then the first thing I click on (does not matter what it is, thumbnail, menu item, folder, anything ) I get the spinning pizza of death and wait literally 2-3 minutes. Once the spinning pizza goes away, everything is find and everything works perfectly. It does not matter if it's the first time using Lightroom that day, or if I just exited out 5 minutes ago... same thing every time. I get the exact same behavior in both of my Lightroom Libraries,,, one has about 190k image, the other about 17k images... so I've ruled out a problem with library ,,, it has to be a program issue.
Any ideas what's causing this?
Apple iMac 27" with latest version of OSX
Adobe Lightroom CC, latest version
Please turn off the Graphics Processor from the Lightroom Preferences.
Go to Lightroom Preferences from the Edit menu
Click on Performance tab
Uncheck the Graphics Processor
Let us know if that helps.
Thanks for the tip. I thought it actually worked for a second ... I restarted Lightroom and started immedialty clicking thumbnails and everything was fine, then I went up and clicked on the "File" menu and the spinning pizza of death was back ... as always, after about 2-3 minutes it went away and then everything worked fine again.
As an experiment, Moved the library file to another drive and opened it from there ... same thing.
Very strange behavior.
I guess I can hope this gets fixed in a later version and until then I just need to allow an extra few minutes when launching the program before I can get started working.
