  1. New to Luminar, so I was SO EXCITED to try 4!'s failing repeatedly. Keeps crashing within minutes of startup.

    Please...FIX THIS SKYLUM! :cry:

    Anyone else having any problems?
  2. Lots of reports of crashes on the Luminar forums. I got fed up with Luminar 3 being so slow and not supporting CR3 files. I suppose at least 4 now supports CR3 files but can't see myself bothering with it. Luminar promise so much with their marketing but the reality doesn't match up to the hype.
