I just tried safe mode. I have to say that my MAC generally doesn't run very good in safe mode.
But anyhow. I tried Lightroom and developed some pictures. It's like same same - if not even worse.
I had a 24mpx (Nikon D7100) dng file open. Added two grad-filters and 3 brushes. Then It was already not possible to work anymore. Like switching brush mode on/off -> 20 seconds. Switching back to the library (G) -> +- 30 seconds.
I tried now moving my catalog to an external HD. Looks like the library is now a little bit faster - but I am still heaving the issues in develop mode...
No more ideas?!?!
Hello Adobe - No more ideas....
I am paying for the Abo -> so it would be nice to get some assistance... ;-(
I think the problem lies in your computer hardware and other apps that are running when the system starts up.
If moving the catalog file to an external drive helped speed up LR then it is definitely a computer hardware problem, the SSD in your Mac.
99.9999% of the time external drives are slower than an internal SSD, even TB and USB 3 drives are slower than an internal SSD.
I suggest you go over to the Apple forums and post your problem there, asking for assistance in running some hardware diagnostics.
Hi there - I am on it Why is Lightroom 6 running so slow MAC Book Pro... | Apple Support Communities
But there is not help yet. So why is Final Cut X for example running smooth and just Lightroom CC not. My Girlfriend has a MacBook Pro from 2010 and her LR5 is running smoother then my LR6 on my machine... It's just frustrating.
I don't use my computer for anything else then Photography and Writing. No caming, films etc.
You find some Apple apps and the Creative Cloud (PS + LR) - not more.....
I deactivate everything before I work with Lightroom. No Cloud no nothing activated. Just the Finder and LRCC.
What is the size of your internal hard drive, and how much free space available? To get optimum performance you should maintain at least 25% free.
I got 500GB and still 200GB free...
I somehow assume that the problem is the Graphic Prozessor or my combination of the whole setup. I spend a lot more money for this computer just to have an I7Prozessor and 3GHz. It's as mentioned a Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 MB. It's actually OpenGL 4 ready...
Anyhow - why does Adobe not support this kind of card?!? Can it be that it causes a bad performance even when the CPU-acceleration is deactivated...?
Really - you should see me sitting here next to my girlfriend. She is swapping around brushes and graduated filters (since this is her style Dodge and Burn) in LR 5 and it's just smooth. And if I even touch the brush tool I think the whole system is collapsing...
Have you turned off the option to use the GPU in the LR preferences? If not do that first and test.
Hey - please read my first post... thx
Hey there - I can't believe that nobody with has running LR at the more or less same system. ;-(
Yesterday I was almost throwing my computer out of the window because of the bad performance in develop mode. I touch a local adjustment and I get the spinning wheel. Had to develop 30 pictures for a wedding, which took me almost the entire day... At the end I used LR5...
It's so frustrating. In the Apple forum they tell me its Adobes fault. They told me also that I need to get a "better" computer. What the hell -> I can't just buy a new computer every time there is a Software update. The power is well enough above the specification what Adobe wants.
I highly regret that I got the Creative Cloud Abo. I will most likely switch back to LR5 which will cause me a lot of work. I work a lot with virtual copies etc. Will take forever to get the data in a LR5 catalog...
If there is anything else I can do or try - PLEASE?!?
