I bought Luminar 4 last year and it was unusable on my 5k iMac 27" 4.2 Ghz Quad i7 with 64GB 2400 MHz DDR4 Ram, 3TB Fusion Drive and Radeon Pro 580 8GB.
I shoot RAW on Panasonic GH5.
I tried again after the 4.2 update. Still slow.
I just tried again after 4.3 update. Still slow.
What is wrong with this software?
I pull in a RAW file and add a look, it takes 15-20 seconds to update the image. Then if I even grab and move the image, 15-20 seconds to update. Adjust something... another 15-20 seconds. Click browser, open another file repeat. It's exhausting! And if I go back to another photo already edited, it takes another 15-20 seconds to load again.
This seems to happen no matter the catalog size. I switched from Lightroom because I just don't use these tools often enough to justify paying so much every month for the Adobe suite of products.
Will this software ever be useable or are we being sold snake oil?
