Re: Importing Media Pro Catalog Sets

Hi Alain

I'm not familiar with Media Pro, however there's an old thread on the Exiftool forum that might help?

Re: File moving slowdown

Build 2869 no longer shows a 'Building thumbnails' process. There is only a 'Moving files' process. The reported times are consistent - the spinner stops at the same time as the 'Moving files' process ends. I've just emailed you a couple of videos illustrating the two cases mentioned in the bullet p...

Get yourself a French Canadian keyboard? Much easier than the French one :)

Re: File moving slowdown

Testing with build 2896 has turned up some very interesting results. After upgrading, a couple of untimed test runs, and then a reboot, I'm now getting a time of around 2' 32" until the 'Moving files' message box disappears, which is an improvement. Curiously, that's also the time that I was getting...

Re: File moving slowdown

The database upgrade on 2886 was only for the Server Edition. For the Single User edition, only the database version number got updated. Your suggestion was to try build 2883 which suppressed the Windows progress dialog; when I downloaded the latest version it was build 2886, rather than 2883. Prio...

Re: File moving slowdown

Both machines are running the same virus scanner (different flavors of ESET) but, just in case, I've run another test with the antivirus disabled on my machine and it makes no difference. In fact, the time saving introduced by build 2886 has also disappeared, and moving the files now takes around 3'...

Re: File moving slowdown

I now have some timings for the borrowed laptop, also running Windows 8.1 with the same Windows patches installed, and moving a similar set of 100 images: Build 2378: 11 seconds Build 2886: 17 seconds There's no sign of thumbnails being built on this machine in either case, which may indicate that t...

Re: File moving slowdown

I found my copy of Version 5 build 2378, have been trying that out on the same laptop. Although with only the test folders in the catalogue. Moving the same 100 files in the same way takes about 11 seconds in that build (about 10 seconds doing nothing obvious, and about a second to move all the file...

Re: Portfolio accessibility

I've never used it, but it could be useful for information - but maybe it does more than that in the server edition.

Re: File moving slowdown

Thanks Hert.

I've upgraded to v2886 and can confirm that it is now significantly quicker, at 2' 32", which is a worthwhile improvement. Though I'm sure it didn't use to take so long. I'll see if there are any other tests I can run.

Re: File moving slowdown

Another possible clue while just running another test. The Windows 'file move popup' popped up for each of the first few images, separately for each image, one after the other, starting right from dropping the files on the new directory, and roughly corresponding to the timing of the removal of the ...

Re: File moving slowdown

My point was the size of the open collection. Moving 100 files from a set of 200 or a set of 10000 can make a difference. Yes, I understood that; I'm moving all the files - a selection of 100 images from a folder of 100 images (and in my other example, 24 files out of a folder of 24) to a folder co...

Re: File moving slowdown

Just done another test on the 100 files: Moving them within PSU still takes 3' 20"; Moving them via the OS, returning to PSU, running 'Verify Folder All', accepting and processing the results (deleting the old images from the catalogs, importing the new, including validation, synchronization and bui...

Re: File moving slowdown

The times above are for moving 100 files from one directory to another empty one, so no big collection involved. Moving 24 files (from the camera, with no additional metadata added) from one directory to another empty directory takes about 43 seconds (about 27" apparently doing nothing other than cl...

Re: File moving slowdown

How are you moving files. And try to disable your custom thumb lines when moving files to see if that makes a difference. I'm moving files by dragging and dropping in the 'folders' view. Disabling custom thumbnails makes no difference to the timing; it's just that then nothing appears to happen for...
