Well here is my problem. I would like to review all my RAW or JPG files quickly. If I go one by one in LR it takes 5 seconds for LR to display each one at 100%. OTOH, I just did library->previews->render 1:1 for 70 5dMKIII files and it took about 5 minutes for that process to complete. So I am just disappointed that LR is not meeting my workflow needs.
Well, LR certainly takes its time when rendering 1:1 previews, esp. on non-turbocharged hardware - however, with 5sec per shot, you're still way faster then my trusty ol' laptop :-o ... but you can work around this, at least a bit:
* disable nr and esp. sharpening when importing files, this speeds up rendering time considerably. Only add sharpening and nr when you've got pictures reviewed and are in the last stages of postprocessing
* render 1:1 previews when importing and/or in advance and do other meaningful things during that time like drinking coffee :-p
Can you tell me how to disable nr and sharpening when importing files - I haven't found those options for Import. And I would have thought the default for any processing during Import would have been "off"?
