Improve Catalog Performance (Metadata Load)

    Poor to dreadful is a very accurate description of Capture One's performance with catalogues, especially larger catalogues.

    Loading metadata also takes quite a while. Here, after opening Capture One, it takes more than a minute before ratings, colour tags, etc., appear in the Filters tool.

    A related request here: Improved handling of catalogues (i.e. faster and less unresponsive)

    I can add some further input here:

    I have discovered that "Load Metadata" works faster under two conditions:

    1. After the operation starts, deselect all images in the browser.  For some reason an active selection has a noticeable impact on performance.

    2. Working by selecting from folder, rather than User Collection, or with a Filter applied, is faster by a HUGE factor.  A "Load Metadata" operation for a selection from a filter takes multiple hours. The same selection, but directly from a folder (so Folder "2022" rather than Catalog>Filter=2022) takes of the order of 10 minutes.

    I've noticed this too. As I remember, it also makes a difference how many images are selected, a single image being less of a problem than a large number.
