Perfect eraser

    No, I haven't seen that. As always, the speed depends upon when in your workflow you make use of the tool. Any edits already made will have to be re-rendered with each stroke of the eraser. The more edits there are the longer that will take.

    You know about the Editing Pipeline, right? (Page 80 in the User Guide.) The order in which the program performs the edits we apply to an image. Retouching is done right up front, before most everything else. It is recommended that we do our editing in the same order and the pipeline will render them to improve the program's performance. I know, we don't always see stuff right up front and it does require a change in our workflow and I'm as guilty as anyone else of not always doing the retouching first. 😁

    If things start taking more time than you'd like try turning off some of the filters, especially the more processor intensive items like Dynamic Contrast or anything that uses a Blending Mode. Turn the back on when you've finished the retouching.

    Brian,

    I know, this is step 1 before any edits  are applied. For the rest is everything, including masking, very fast and smooth. Just perfect eraser. Weird he?

    | It is recommended that we do our editing in the same order

    Where does this recommendation come from? On page 81 of the User Manual, it says:

    | You do not have to edit your photos in this order

    ...so it would be great to understand where the recommendation comes from.

    It comes from the company. I've read it but I cannot remember where. You can search the Forums and Knowledge Base as easily as I. 😉

    BTW, the preferred order of editing is one of the reasons the order of the tabs was rearranged for the new UI placing Local Adjustments ahead of Effects.
