Select sky or select subject takes more than 2 minutes

Hi,

Whenever I use the new masking tools "select sky" or "select subject" the first time it takes over 2 minutes to mask. Then If I edit a totally different picture it almost works instantly.

Then when I close lightroom and start it again, the next picture I want to mask with select sky of select subject again takes over 2 minutes.

Is there an explanation for this? Could there be a setting which I should change?

My computer is an Intel Nuc 10 with i7-10710U processor and 32GB of Ram.

That computer should not do that. That processor is fast enough. On my laptop it takes about 1.5 seconds to select any sky. On my desktop it is instant. Run Cc Cleaner and some windows diagnostics. Maybe a guru can help you to see if any LR settings that should be changed. Go to LR help and read the article on maximizing performance on your computer with LR. It has pages of tips to make sure you are maxing out LR on your machine.

Select Subject/Sky uses the graphics processor (GPU) to run its AI models, and bugs in the graphics drivers can affect the proper execution of Select Subject/Sky. (Note that a LR bug causes Select Subject/Sky to ignore the option Preferences > Performance > Use Graphics Processor, so you can't use that to troubleshoot Select problems.)

Please do the menu command Help > System Info and copy/paste the entire contents here, and we can see what graphics hardware and software you're running.

That driver is relatively new, from March 2022. However, it looks there may be a newer driver (30.0.101.1994). Go to Intel's site and install the latest driver. Dozens of people have experienced problems with Select Subject/Sky on Intel chips with older drivers

Thanks for the advice. My Intel Driver & Support Assistance app however states that this driver is up to date. Could it do any harm to try the newer driver you are referring to?

In this case, I wouldn't recommend overriding the assistance app, unless you're very experienced with IT and have a plan for backing out the driver. The large number of people reporting problems with Select Subject/Sky on Windows had Intel integrated-graphics drivers that were years old. Yours is only a couple months old, so it's less likely to be the cause of this problem (though still possible).
