I am about a week into my trial of ON1 2020 and, unless there is anything settings-wise that I can do, will have to sadly abandon the programme and resort to paying Adobe their monthly subscription.
I have really loved working my way through the programme and getting to grips with how it edits and views photos, but the lack of speed and the constant fan noise on my iMac and MacBook Air are really getting to me. I am sure that my iMac would benefit from being replaced by a new one, but that's not going to happen any time soon.
I have tried the System sliders in a variety of positions, restarted the programme and moved the scratch disc to a remote location, but nothing seems to calm down the hunger of ON1. ON1 is showing it taking c.500% of the CPU, 1.4Gb of memory with NO other apps running. Even when I am doing absolutely nothing in the programme itself, the programme seems to need more from my Mac.
Navigating through the browser tree lags and clicking on populated folders does nothing for an annoying length of time.
I am running ON1 2020 on my iMac (27-inch, Late 2012) running Mojave v10.14.6. The iMac has a 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7 processor with 32 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 memory. The graphics card is a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX 2 GB.
I have tested a wide range of photo manipulation programmes and have often encountered this problem. I do not understand how Lightroom, working under exactly the same conditions, seems to work flawlessly with rarely a hint of working overtime or being stressed.
Is there anything settings-wise I could try before I leave ON1?
