New Mac Book Pro Problem
« on: April 27, 2010, 07:42:35 PM »
I just purchased a new 15" macbook pro, 2.66 i7.  When I review pictures with PM and switch images there is a noticeable delay before the image comes into focus.  It is similar to what I saw with lightroom before switching to PM.  I wonder about the graphics features of the new MB pro but really have no idea why I am seeing this or how to fix it.  Any thoughts?

Do you have RAW rendering turned on?
What version of Photo Mechanic are you running?
What OS version are you running?

I will check RAW rendering when I am back at that computer in the AM

I checked preferences and have the following:

RAW rendering is enabled
For RAW and JPEG: "render RAW for preview if possible"
For RAW only: "render RAW for preview if possible"

Change them to prefer JPEG previews and the speed will come back.

THANK YOU!  I thought my new very expensive computer was going to be a waste!

Great.  Perhaps you could post the solution on the SportsShooter message board on that thread you started?  That way people over there will benefit by having the answer.

Thanks,
