So far so bad

I'm incredibly disappointed in this app. Not working at all as I'd hoped. Batch processing my Nikon RAW (NEF) files is not working for me - the app simply freezes up, and I'm left with no alternative but to Force Quit. Now when I reopen it automatically crashes, and I can't do anything with it. I'm ready to go back to Adobe Lightroom. (2017 iMac 4K, 16GB RAM. Mojave 10.14.1)

No funciona Metal

La aplicación es increible, pero la acelración de procesos mediante Metal no funciona con la 555 de mi MBP. No se que pasa pero no va bien. Me molesta bastante no poder usar la potencia del ordenador. Probé a descargar Photoshop para terminar el proyecto, y va mucho más fluido con imágenes grandes. Muy decepcionado.
Espero que lo arreglen pronto por que el programa me gusta mucho, y no me gustaría tener que volver a Adobe por un tema de rendimiento.

Que usted para su revisión. Ya somos conscientes de esto y esperamos obtener una solución en el futuro.

Versión inestable

Se ha mejorado un poco la versión anterior. Para un usuario medio avanzado, es más que suficiente plantando cara a las más famosas aplicaciones de edición fotográfica.


La última versión es muy inestable. En ocasiones se vuelve muy lenta y se bloquea; en otras ocasiones se cierra inesperadamente.
Cada vez que entro en “Preferencias" se cierra” . Ésto ocurre siempre.

Debe mejorarse esto. Por eso la he valorado tan baja.

Edito 24-6-18:

Se corrigen problemas anteriores.

Pero bien se han resuelto los problemas anteriores y me enviaron un correo con información de cómo corregirlo, sigue dando problemas. Comparto comentario de otro usuario que cuando llevas tiempo trabajando un documento, se cierra inesperadamente y no hay opción de recuperar todo el trabajo realizado. Recomiendo guardar cada poco tiempo para no perder todo el trabajo.
Aún así, como en mi caso, cuando le he dado a guardar, es cuando he perdido y no he podido recuperar el documento sobre el que llevaba tiempo trabajando, se ha quedado con 0 bits. Irrecuperable. He enviado informe de errores para que solucionen error.

Si bien en general la aplicación te da todo lo que necesitas y más, esto es inaceptable, se llame como se llame.

En cualquier caso creo que es muy muy buena.

Developer Response ,

Gracias por sus comentarios, mantenga presionada la tecla CTRL y abra la aplicación, cuando aparezca la ventana, suelte la tecla. Ahora asegúrese de que todo esté desactivado, aparte de Borrar valores predeterminados del usuario y haga clic en Borrar, esto debería resolver el problema del cierre.
