I have rather large catalogues with 100.000+ RAW photographs on a Windows machine. About two or three years ago I tested the cataloging functions of C1 which was a disaster. In fact, the catalog of C1 was not (entirely ?) based on a database. For example, when I said "Show me all photographs in the collection X with the keyword Y and rating Z" C1 seemed to search for these stuff "manually" in all files instead of looking it up in a database. This resulted in unbearable long search processes. Also the support honestly confirmed this behaviour.
At this point, C1 was not useful as a DAM for large catalogs. And they missed to properly make use of the Media Pro software which they purchased before. I switched to Daminion for cataloging images which is superfast and shows all searches instantly. The only problem with Daminion is that it doesn't reflect the editings or variants done/created in C1, which is a pain. So, I still dream of C1 becoming a real DAM which makes use of a database.
As I said, it's two or three years ago I did this tests (as it's a huge amount of work). Maybe it was CaptureOne version 9, but I'm not sure. Now, they state, that with C1 22 the speed on Windows machines increased a lot (I'm using Windows too).
Are you working with large catalogs? And do you know if they modified it towards a real DAM? Or does it still behave like described above?
Many thanks for your insights!
