Is Capture One still slow on mac studio after update?

    I‘ve got the same issue like Bernhard after updating to 15.2.1. C1 never felt slow on my system but now it‘ unusable. It takes seconds to preview after moving sliders. My preview size is also set to 3840px.

    I switched from a Mac Pro 6,1 to the mac studio (base configuration). 
    cannot say that CO 22 is faster now.

    No, CaptureOne isn't slow on M1 and I have a first generation M1 Mac mini. Even with only 16GB built-in RAM, which C1 can easily take up on its own, it isn't slowing down because the internal system SSD pushes up to 7GB/s. My photos are stored externally on a Thunderbolt 3 drive with 2x SSD in RAID 0 that manages about 2GB/s. As long as your data is on a fast drive with a fast connection, C1 will be fast. I would expect just the application to be even faster on the Mac Studio which has more RAM and more cores than the Mac mini.

    Having said that, there probably should be a lot more going into the purchasing decision on whether to get a Mac or a PC. I'm assuming you're not solely running C1 on that machine.

    Did not say, CO is slow on the mac Studio. 
    i did expect a better performance on M1 Max compared to my previous machine though.

    just recently I updated to CO 22 latest version 15.2.1

    it seems to me that this version is slower than 15.2.0. some images take almost 2 seconds to render completely.

    i have set the size of the preview images to the native resolution of my monitor which is 3840.

    Do we know if CO-22 is optimized for the M1 processor?

    allegedly it is...

    I repaired my catalog and enforced rebuild of hardware acceleration (by deleting capture/image cache). 
    i see an improvement.

    I‘ll give it a try but I didn‘t open my mastercatalog yet and was just working with 2 small sessions with less than 1000 images on internal ssd (Macbook Pro i7 2018).

    To be honest I didn't expect this, but dialing hardware acceleration, deleting the ImageCore folder in Library->Applicationsupport->Capture One and the enabling hardware acceleration again made difference. Now working with C1 15.2.1 is as fluid as with 15.2.0 before.

    c1 wanna have fast GPUs, despite the apple advertising BS even the M1 Ultra GPU is not blazing fast, it is more in the RTX3060Ti territory, so a ugly boring pc with a 3080 is still faster in a lot of scenarios despite the handpicked ones. ... btw. I'm using PCs and Macs since forever and I love the M1 in my macbook. 
    I hope CaptureOne will use the neural Engine in the future and the nvidia tensor cores for some fancy masking features and other cool stuff

    Hello,

    I'm experiencing the same issue with the latest version of CO 22.

    My config : Mac Studio Max 32 / 64Go / 1TB.

    Network : Ethernet 10 G

    Exporting 70 photo takes more than 30 minutes and the activity of the Mac Studio is so low...

    The same export with my old PC (i7 4790K ; 32 Go ; 1TB ; GC GTX 1070) takes more-less 5 mins. Even the editing processing is slower on the Mac Studio.

    I'm really disappointed by this experience.

    I hope than a future version of C1 22 will resolve this embarrassing issue asap.

    Hervé Cladière ,

    Don't know to where you export.

    i have the Mac Studio M1 Max in base configuration and I exported 91 64MP Raw files (all edited) to an external SSD in jpg-format (full) and I took exactly 2:50 minutes.

    what I found is that CO gets naughty when you do not use your monitor in native resolution!

    so maybe you're exporting to a slow destination (e.g. NAS) and or your monitor is not set to native resolution.

    Hello Bernhard Mutter,

    first of all, thank you for your help.

    I would say "where" I'm exporting doesn't matter. The must important in my message is the comparaison between my new Mac and my old PC. Same images, same destination, the latest version of CO on both.

    But I will test your warning regarding the native resolution of my display. Currently I'm using the MacOS scaling for my LG 4k.

    I will let you know asap.

    regards

    I've performed the test with native resolution : same issue.

    Several times CO is totally stuck with the beach ball displayed.

    Herve,

    i totally agree!

    Definitively the issue is not on the CO side but on the MacOS side.

    On MacOS, the efficiency of the network management is so poor regarding Windows 10 side...
