I'm a former user of Lightroom since the version 4.0 until CC. I started to disagree with their subscription/cloud/catalog orientation but keep using it until last year february 2018 when I switched from Canon full frame to Fujifilm X-T2 as I was not pleased with the rendering of the RAF files.
After trying On1 and Capture One, I finally moved to Exposure X3 then update to X4 as I was satisfied with the program.
Then I discover Luminar 3 beginning of this year and bought it on January 9th 2019.
Originally I imported my entire media folder (almost 104000 photos) , as I did with the others programs without any issues. With Luminar 3 this action took an infinite time. I tought it will be for the first time only. Unfortunately, each time I launch the program it takes so much time before I can start to work with it. Then when effectively opened, the browsing to search specific images is definitely a deal breaker due to the slowlyness of the process.
I tried everything from re-installing the program from scratch to reduce the size of the import to 12300 images. Still the same issue.
As of today I didn't find the way to really enjoy Luminar 3. So you say "Guys, the performance issues will be fixed in the next update (end of January - beginning of February). The app will get faster and more stable."
We are on January 30th. How long it will takes more before that I can really use efficiently Luminar 3?
