Just downloaded Luminar 3 yesterday and was excited about the DAM.
Unfortunately, it does not work at all.
Cataloging my photos (around 100,000) takes forever. It stuck at 18% for about an hour without any CPU usage and 0 disk activity.
Eventually, I gave up and try to add smaller folders first. It worked OK.
However, starting Luminar 3 takes several minutes on my Windows 10 with i7 4790K 16GB memory. System disk is Samsung Evo 850 500GB SSD.
I let it run during the day to add all my folders. When I came back from work, the machine restarted. Not sure why. Starting Luminar 3 still takes several minutes.
When I click some of the small folders in my photo folder tree, it doesn't even load the preview pictures.
I can tell there are some frames for photos but everything is empty.
Clicking one of the photos to edit takes more than 10 seconds to load.
At this point, I don't think this product is usable at all. Period!
Luminar 2018 loads slow but works. I will stick to that.
