My settings in LR 4.1 are all default. I don't see where there are options for sharpening or NR during Import. And I don't understand why they would affect the time it takes to render 1:1 previews once they are imported to LR.

You have to create a development profile yourself with nr and sharpening off (dev module with some pic, sharpening & nr to 0, create preset, tag both and maybe autotone), and then select this to apply during import, or else lr will use its own defaults with both on.

On import, there is a selection if you want to render minimal, standard or 1:1 previews. Once you've got 1:1 rendered, it should persist *until* you do the tiniest adjustment which will fore a re-render - that's why turning nr & sharpening off until the end helps.

Marsu: Does 4.1 apply some sharpening by default? Is this different from 3.6?

I don't remember exactly what LR3 did (I uninstalled it), but LR generally uses some default nr & sharpening settings that work reasonably well, you only might have to tune nr down or up according to your iso setting & target export size. There's a plugin "bulk develop settings" which does nr according to iso automatically, btw.

The only problem is that the Adobe guys sure have 8-core 4ghz watercooled systems, while the average guy like poor me is well advised to temporarily set nr & sharpening to zero while doing cropping & other adjustments.

Well after using the official 4.1 for several days now I'm happy to report the only issue I had (it was never slow on my machine) is resolved.  No more 99% usage on my 24gigs of memory!  I'm back to never seeing more then maybe 40% usage with several browsers open, LR4.1, CS6, bridge, and Elements 10 (all being used).

I do find it odd when people using 2 and 3 year old machines wonder why it's slow... you buy the most up to date camera and software, well you have to update computers, to current technology, every 2 years unless you spend $3k+ in which case you might get 3 years outta that machine.  That's just for the box people, a good editing monitor is going to run another thousand minimum.  But that's what it takes to run this software and get competative results with your peers.  Photography isn't a cheap person's hobby/business.  You get the best results from the best equipment.  Or I may be full of it, wouldn't be the first time!  I still hold on to the belief I am going to find a mint 50mm 1.0L at a garage sale on an old body for $5 hehe.  woot!

LR4.1 and CS6 have my vote in the "kick ass" column.

Unfortunately you just missed a Canon EF 50mm F1 on eBay, the guy was asking $4950.  ;)

I don't know if you are keen on trolling, but this is really bs even for an enthusiast's forum if I may say to. While it might take some $$$ to get hq action shots, this isn't necessarily the case for other styles of photography. And running the inexpensive LR (not PS!) on an older box is perfectly fine, it just takes longer to process the shots, but you can work around this a bit. The problem with LR4 was (and to a lesser extent: is) that it's not just "slow", but grinded to a halt after some time running.

Ok maybe a dumb question here, but is RAW 7.1 a standalone program or part of CS6?

Thanks

Neither,  Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) is used in three products with different angles. It's fixed-built into Lightroom and the free Adobe DNG Converter so you need a new main program version to upgrade it, while you can update it separately from PS. PS is just installed with the ACR version that happened to be current on the PS release date.
