What problem do you see this solving?
I understand from a product management standpoint the need to add new features to justify ongoing subscriptions and attract new users, but as a long time CO user, I would really, truly, love to see a major push on improving performance, especially when working over network drives, or doing any kind of file operations. Somehow Lightroom is able to render previews quickly, even when not cached, is able to import new images fairly quickly, or when locating a moved folder, the change happens quickly. Not so Capture One - it labors on network drives, often seeming to freeze when simply scrolling a folder, importing is painfully slow (I use Photo Mechanic to ingest) and using catalogs on remote drives is a last resort. I think my network is about average so I imagine I'm not the only one experiencing this. Please, please, hire some Adobe guys to speed things up!
When was the last time you were affected by this lack of functionality, or specific tool?
It is a daily issue as most of my images are on network drives
Are you using any workarounds or other solutions to achieve your goals in Capture One?
I have switched from Catalogs to Sessions to try and speed things up, but it is still very slow. I also have a folder of jpgs on my laptop which lets me search (in a limited way) for images from a past shoot.
Are you happy to be contacted further about this suggestion or request?
