Performance Problems with on M1 Mac



  • Sven Koesling

    Rebuilding the image core kernels as described here helped a little bit, but the solution was to disable hardware acceleration within the preferences.

    I don't know why, but after disabling hardwar acceleration the images are developed within a fraction of a second...

  • I have performance problems too (I admit I have an older mac, the last Intel MacBook 16", but I don't think that the delays I'm seeing are normal), and disabling the hardware acceleration doesn't help. BTW, disabling hardware acceleration for a graphic editing application is a nonsense — I think C1 has serious problems in this area.

    Also unusable here on a Macbook Pro M2 Max. When i close the application and opoen again it takes like 1Minute. Downgraded now to 16.3.8.
    Copied all pictures to a new session and its fast like always again.

    In my personal experience, it also worked perfectly and didn't have any major issues with as much shooting frequency as I was working.

    Perhaps related. I've recently started seeing delays when editing; sometimes when I adjust a parameter it takes a while before Capture One responds, five to ten seconds sounds about right. I don't remember seeing this before. I also use an M1 Mac (Max 64GB).
