It must have been fun, but I can tell you I would not upgrade this weekend as planned and might not upgrade at all. I don't like some of the things I am reading, there is nothing better to extinguish my enthusiasm that feeling forced to do something I don't want to do, even if it is supposedly good, even if is the best thing since apple pie/peanut butter. Fully symphatise with Gerald.The forum's no busier than I expected it to be, considering there was no public beta (and the first day debacle with both CC and LR6 installation issues certainly hasn't helped). Part of the challenge with new releases is to work out whether the issues being raised are simple lack of familiarity, or are there some genuine bugs. It'll calm down eventually, we're already seeing a switch from the installation issues to usability questions, which will be more fun than typing the same response over and over as we had to do on Tuesday evening/Wednesday!
http://www.lightroomqueen.com/community/showthread.php?p=164231Who told you that? Considering how busy this forum is Adobe will be shooting on their foot if they don't do a dot release soon. I just cannot keep up and wonder if the usual top contributors have had any sleep.
New features are not bug fixes and camera updates. There will be a LR6.1 etc. There will not be any new features like LR Mobile. IIRC LRMobile was slipped into LR5.4 and Standalone customers couldn't really take advantage of it but it was there for cloud customers. Face Recognition is a new feature along with HDR and Pano and for that Adobe created a new Standalone version 6 and separated features like LR Mobile into a LRCC. At some point I expect there will be a standalone LR7 unless the standalone customer base falls below some minimum needed to justify improving it. If there should not be a LR7, then I expect Adobe will continue to sell LR6 as a standalone like they do CS6 with functionality frozen but bug fixes and ACR updates continuing/
I suspect that's an incompatibility with your graphics card, as GPU acceleration is only used in the develop module.I select the "develop" module, and I can still see the images in preview at the bottom, but on the main screen, there is no image. Just a blue screen with a white "X" across it. Were it gets really strange is that if I make adjustments, I can see the adjustments being made on the preview thumbnail. So it is as if it can't display the larger image. I have tried signing out and back in, and I have uninstalled and re-installed.
Hi Jim,So just to confirm, the only warning message about a trial expiry date concerns LR mobile, is that right?
If you do Help>System Info you should have the Lightroom version of CC2015, and the next line down should be License: Creative Cloud. Yes?
And on the Preferences>Lightroom mobile tab, what does the Status line say?
Do you intend to use LR mobile? If you open the Activity Centre (click on the Identity Plate), what's the status of the first entry "Sync with LR Mobile"?
So, I did some extra testing. I used two environments:I have a feeling some changes were made in respect of the Smart Preview generation, basically reducing the amount od CPU usage (in LR5 there were concerns that too much CPU utilisation was going into the Smart Previews build, which had a knock-on impact to other areas). But 5 times longer seems wrong, I'm certainly not seeing anything like that.
I used to travel quite a bit, so having all images in Smart Previews was essential. I guess I should reconsider now and stop making/using them, although I don't like that I'm practically forced to do it due to software regression.shkin, You might evaluate your actual need for Smart Previews. If you are using LR Mobile. you are limited to sharing only those images in a Sync'd collection. It you are on a laptop and your masters are on an EHD then you only need Smart Previews for the images that you will be working on while your laptop is away from the EHD.
I do not create Smart previews on import and do not create or keep them for images that are not in my sync'd folders. So my Smart previews folder is quite small. I haven't noticed any delays Like you list , probably because I don't create Smart Previews.
OK, got a bit of time to do some testing. First thing, the different counter increments aren't indicative of the CPU core activity, though there are some differences. For my testing I used 200 22mp raw files from my Canon 5DIII, and ran the tests in the two environments as per my signature. Note that the benchmark speeds have the MBP CPU at roughly twice the speed of my Windows desktop, and previous timing tests do normally have the MBP nearly twice as fast as the desktop. Results of my tests as follows:Thanks for the tip. As expected, the counter is advancing 1 at a time vs 7 at a time in LR5.
I have no answer to the problem - as I cannot reproduce it.Did anyone have an answer to Jeff B's post:
Strange problem. I can work on an imported image without problems but when I take it into PS or OnOne (edit a copy with LR adjustments), then bring it back into LR, every adjustment I then make causes a 'blink' (image closes then reopens), after 5 - 10 seconds. I still have LR5 and this does not happen there.?
Turning GPU off or on, makes no difference.
I'm having the exact same problem and it seems we got lost in the shuffle.
Can anybody help please?
