"NX2: 2.2.7 Faster?"


Limassol, CY
          

Is it subjective, but it appears to me that 2.2.7 loads my raw images much faster.

Any comments?

Aubrey.

I just upgraded last night and played a bit with it this morning. I don't notice any difference in speed at all, but I did read at least one other post that also claimed faster performance.

certainly feels faster on my machine (i7 980x 12gigs win7 64bit)...however, the 'engine out of memory' error persists, perhaps not surprisingly, since this is not a full release capable of 64 bit management...

I have noticed a speed increase. But the fastest way to get there has been through using NXview2 and leaving NX2 minimized, but loaded. It seems to pop the images into NX2 faster. I have not experienced the memory issue but I do not do batch operations.

In 2.2.6 Nikon fixed a bug that prevented the cpnx_tiledata temp folder from being located where the user configured it in Preferences/Folder for Temporary Data. However, while the contents of the folder was properly deleted at the end of a CNX session, the folder itself (containing a unique number such as cpnx_5196_tiledata) was left behind. These orphaned folders build up over time, one for every time CNX was opened. Each time CNX opens I suspect it parses the folder names so it can create a new temp folder without duplicating the unique number found in one of the orphaned folders.

In 2.2.7, the bug that left orphaned folders behind was fixed.

I think 2.2.7 opens faster, at least in part, because it no longer needs to parse a long list of cpnx_tiledata folder names. Of course the length of the list would vary from user to user, and whether or not the user chose to manually remove the orphaned folders during routine cleanup maintenance, so it might open faster for some than for others.

I know little about it but a while back I followed links on the site & changed my settings as follows, does your post mean that I could reset the defaults now with 2.2.7 installed?
Preferences - 'General', under Folder for 'Temp Data' I added an external HD ref: instead. Also did the same under 'Cache Settings'.
Be very obliged for advice. Also I use two external drives and dont know how to change the settings so both can be called up in preferences?
Thanks

On my 32bit Vista laptop with 4 gig of memory it does seem to be faster opening but where I have seen a real speed increase is when I convert and save to a different file on my laptop.

I upgraded NX2 last week and yes it does seem a little faster,I shall be glad when Nikon decides to upgrade NX2 to 64 bit,but wonder if it will ever happen it is certainly long overdue.

Doesn't seem any faster to me. Most of the time when I think it's faster it's because of some reset done during install/upgrade and it settles back to normal soon enough.

I have just updated from NX2 2.2.6 to 2.2.7. The increase in speed of loading thumbnails and selected photos is as fast as I will ever need it! Amazing.

I got carried away and thought it was faster but next time I used it it was at snails pace again, cant see anything in Nikons description of the upgrade which would make it faster, isnt the change mainly to accomadate another camera? (as usual)

My experience is that loading the CNX program only (as from the windows Start menu) is faster. Loading CNX and an image at the same time by double-clicking a NEF file makes it somewhat harder to tell.

Nikon doesn't necessarily document all the changes they make, see my earlier post. So you can't tell from their description of the update everything it will contain.

No noticeable increase in speed for me.

The big thing that gets to me,as mentioned in this thread already, is the 64 bit anomaly. I live in a tiny island in the middle of the Med where things can take time but I dont think it would easy to buy a Windows laptop here that is not 64 bit, strange how a great co like Nikon does not keep up with the PC world.
Maybe if my laptop was able to run programs at its full potential it would be fairer to comment on speed etc.

I upgraded from 2.2.6 yesterday, and it opens NEF's a LOT faster. This is especially noticeable with NEF's having a long edit list. The old version took much longer to render them.
