Watched the Laura Shoe video for new Range Mask Filter and tried the routine in some 'first snowfall photos this morning.
First experience of intense slowdown within develop mode in past version and current version 7. I was looking at a blank screen frequently as I changed from one process to another. For example select crop tool and all is blank for a few seconds. The histogram certainly didn't respond to any develop changes.
I don't think the actual results of using the range mask filter was worth the resulting slow down.
I'm hoping its just a cache build up and perhaps there will be a tip showing up to work around this. Otherwise I can survive without the Range Mask Filter.
