Re: HF 25% slower on 10 core iMac Pro than 6 Core Mac Pro

Thanks, trying it now. What is the difference between the two Method B's? (depth map and legacy)

Re: HF 25% slower on 10 core iMac Pro than 6 Core Mac Pro

Might I get a copy of the Windows version? I am running Parallels and that would be so awesome!

HF 25% slower on 10 core iMac Pro than 6 Core Mac Pro

I have just received my new iMac Pro 10 Core system. I also have a Mac Pro 2013 with 6 Cores. How is it that rendering a stack of 268 DNG files using method B, and Adobe DNG converter, takes 8min 55sec on the 6 core Mac Pro but 11min 12sec on the 10 Core iMac Pro with its much newer CPU (even though...

Unnecessary idle CPU usage

Hi Stas, When I am finished rendering a stack on my macOS Sierra Mac Pro 2013, the CPU usage of Helicon Focus always linger on about 400% on my 6 Core Xeon. Most of this is system CPU usage. I find this strange as the rendering is complete, and while nothing is happening in Helicon Focus the CPU wil...

Re: Latest 6.6.0 horribly slow on Mac

Why? I am using Adobe's DNG converter and it works perfectly on 6.5.2. I am not willing to switch to a different RAW converter - I'd rather stick to 6.5.2 for the rest of time :) I stacked with 6.6.1 and 6.5.2 using DNG. For 6.6.1 the stack took 5:39. For 6.5.2 it took 4:23, thus 28% slower. See CPU...

Re: Latest 6.6.0 horribly slow on Mac

Sure. With Jpeg images 6.6 is only about 10% slower than 6.5.2 with jpeg. With DNG 6.6 is about 1000% slower than 6.5.2. See graph below. The left part is 6.6 rendering 33 x 20MP Jpeg images. Notice the system CPU usage (red). On the right, it shows 6.5.2 rendering that same stack (i ran it twice to...

Re: Latest 6.6.0 horribly slow on Mac

Nope both behave pretty much the same - 10 seconds between images, whereas 6.5.2 takes 3 seconds. This is with DNG in DNG out.

Latest 6.6.0 horribly slow on Mac

I see there are supposedly some multi CPU performance enhancements in 6.6.0 - but it killed performance for me on my 6 core Xeon Mac Pro. CPU runs 1000% (most of that is kernel time). It takes approximately 10 times as long to render a DNG stack. During this time my mac is very unresponsive. Screen ...

6.3 save to DNG not working on Mac

I have 6.3 and tried to save as a DNG image (from Canon RAW). It pops up the JPEG compression dialog and saves the file with a dng extension but the file itself is a small JPEG file. This is on Mac OS X 10.10.

Re: Some bugs in HF

Yup drag & drop does not work for me either in 6.3.0 - worked fine in 6.2.2. Yosemite.

Re: Problem saving in 6.2.2

It only seems to be doing this if the target file already exists. It asks to overwrite the file but then writes the temp file and leaves the current file intact.

Problem saving in 6.2.2

Just downloaded 6.2.2 - seems much better, it actually stacks images again. However, when I save my output as TIFF it now writes a file with Untitled.tif_temp and does not rename it back.

Re: HF6 keeps on crashing on new Mac Pro

Could be. Though I have 64GB and it crashes between the second and third attempts usually.

Re: HF6 keeps on crashing on new Mac Pro

Makes no difference - it still crashes. And I deleted it from the Terminal so nothing was hidden.
