I made some additional adjustments to the exclusion list that my antivirus and anti-malware use. Up until today I had only excluded the directories containing images that where used in my catalog. Today, I went one step further and it has seemed to help a lot. By a lot, I mean, much more responsive especially while editing and using sliders.
I excluded the appdata directory for ON1 for both products. On a Windows machine that directory is:
C:\Users\Kevin\AppData\Roaming\ON1 (replace Kevin with your username)
I also excluded the directories that are used by ON1 for the Scratch folder and the Browse cache. These are set inside of ON1 under preferences. I had already moved these folders to their own SSDs a few months back.
My impression is that the database files that ON1 seems to want to beat to death with updates (or whatever) are in the appdata\Roaming\ON1 somewhere and excluding this directory tree is the main improvement.
I just finished editing a photo that has 10 filters. I even have the left pane open and LUTs Filter panel open. I know that panel is updating faster then it was yesterday. The LUT panel stutters a little bit, but nothing like yesterday and while it is repainting the individual LUTs to match the image I am working on, I can move a slider on any other filter in the Effects tab and get immediate results. Yesterday, 5 or 6 filters where causing me excessive slowness and lagging of the slider with the Levels and image changes. I understand that the filters themselves might be more or less intensive, but still....
It is worth a check for everyone, IMO.
