My startup times were varying between 10 and 60 seconds and I've figured out why.
The golden rule (for me at least) is to jump back to grid view before exiting. If i exit Luminar from the edit panel (with multiple edits applied to an image), it's going to be a 60 second startup.
It's really not much different than starting in grid view (10 seconds) and selecting Edit on the image I was working on (30 seconds to load it), but the perception is night and day at least to me, and it's still a little quicker.
For reference, I've catalogued about 10k images.
Quick tip, the space bar jumps between grid and edit.
