I recently started to experience very slow performance in LR and have tried a number of things with little change in performance. When I say slow performance I should identify what I mean.
- When I am in the Develop module and a try to change something like exposure or clarity or anything else there is a delay of 1-3 seconds between the time I make the change and the time it actually appears. It is no different if I use the slider or type in a value. In fact when I use the slider the values actually change dramatically and not smoothly so I have to input actual values or us the left or right arrow.
- If I try and do an HDR it will take 5 min. or more to complete the merge.
- If I try to do a Panorama it can take 5-10 min. or more and sometimes I get to about 65% and I then get a "LR Does not Respond" message
- Today I wanted to upload a book that I had previously made and put into my Collections but ran into more problems. First the book would not open so I closed LR. When I reopened LR the book started to appear but the pictures appeared very slowly. When I went to the 1 or 2 page spread I noticed that the final version I had generated was not appearing with the adjustments I had made. Then very slowly each picture started to appear with the adjustments but each took 2-5 sec. or more to show up. In the film strip you could see very slowly how the changes appeared and lastly the number appeared at the top of the photo showing how many times it was used in the book.
Lenovo desktop with Intel core i7-3770 processor
Running Windows 10 current version
RAM 12 GB
Video card - NVIDIA GTX 980
Running LR 6.9 current version
I have turned off "Use Graphics Processor" in Preferences
Other things I have done:
- We have run a complete scan and also had Microsoft look at our machine and they ran additional scans and indicated that it was performing well on all other programs but LR.
It is hoped someone can make suggestions as to what we can do because we are getting very frustrated.
