    Lightroom CC running extremely slow on MACBook Retina ElCapitan

    Freiheitenwelt Level 1

      Hi there,


      I know there is an endless list of posts with the similar title. Anyhow - I went through almost all of them but my CC is still running like a turtle. Especially in the develop mode. Once I use more then 3 local adjustments I can forget about working. Takes like 10 -30s just to move the brush for example. The catalog is quite stable. I always get the 1:1 previews loaded - CPU is at almost 0% before I start working. Sometimes getting as high as 350% and all fans are running at max after 5 Min.


      Here my setup:


      MacBook Pro Retina 13""

      3 GHz Intel Core i7

      8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3

      Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 MB (unfortunately unsupported by Adobe)


      That's what I already deactivated. I also tried to start LR in 32Bit - Modus - but well - this is really no fun. LR and El-Capitan are Updated to it's newest version.


      This is deactivated:

      -> Face detection

      -> Adress search

      -> Automated writing of Metadata

      -> Graphic Prozessor Acceleration

      -> Open import window when card is detected



      Any help highly appreciated. LR5 was running smooth and if this problems will not disappear I probably need to continue with LR5 and not LRCC. Anyone heaving LRCC running on a likewise system without problems?
