One1 Perfect Effects 9.5
« on: June 15, 2015, 05:34:45 PM »
I don't know if anyone has tried this software but I wanted to let everyone know that I'm not impressed so far. The reason is due to lag.  I have used Perfect Effects 8 for a long time with zero issues.  I decided to try the newest 9.5 since it was going to be free for 30 days.  Well, I downloaded it and tried using it as a stand alone program and my computer got LAGGY has Hell. ANY function I tried took at least 5 seconds (or more) to actually perform or even react.  It stayed that way until I got out of PE 9.5.  It was hideous.
I hope someone has better luck with that program than I did.  But I just wanted to let everyone know my experience so *if* it happens to them, it won't be a total shock.
Take your camera with you dammit. You can't take your next "best photo" if your camera is sitting at home in the bag, now can you?

Agreed.  I come to realize that I can do everything they offered in my regular PS and LR.  PE 8 was free so I downloaded it and it worked ok with some nice presets...and it didn't cause any issues with my machine.  But this 9.5 isn't as carefree. I will be removing it.
I haven't checked their 'community' to see if anyone else was having this issue. I should...JUST in case something isn't right with my computer (although every other program seems to have zero issues).
