On my system I have these options set to ‘Warn’. But even if I switch them to “Off”; it doesn’t effect RT startup time.
I’ve also tried disabling AV s/w, disabling F/W; but all to no avail.
And why should only RT behave so ‘specific’ (and slow), while all other software performs just smooth and quick. E.g. when I stitch a panorama file with PTGui Pro, stitching 20 x 60Mb TIFF files, creating several thousand temp files, sucking up 20GB of RAM, all in a few seconds. So I have no issues with the performance of my specific machine.
I’ve also read the story about debug reports for RT. But that all refers to crashes of RT. And in this case, RT doesn’t crash, it’s just slow to start…
I’m really eager to use RT as a substitute for my current RAW converter (ViewNX-i), but I’m not a programmer, just an experienced Windows photographic post processing user.
I’m not happy with the RAW conversions from the Adobe products with my NEF RAW files, because ViewNX-i does a better job. But I’m looking for more control, more finetuning, etc. and was hoping to find this with RT.
When googling the web about the slow startup issues with RT; it is clear to me, I’m not the only one. But didn’t find the holy grail (yet) as to solve this issue, before really diving deep into a new RAW converter. So I was hoping to get some assistance over here.
Are the developers/programmers reading along? (I have no idea if they do)
