Aperture beach ball on new iMac
May 4, 2013

I have a new iMac with 16GB memory and 768GB SSD with 3TB hard disk.  SO it should be fast and mostly it is.

However, when using Aperture I sometimes have a performance problem.  Typically I will be painting in skin smoothing and suddenly Aperture comes to a stop. Nothing further gets painted and the beach ball spins for a while - 10 secs to a minute.  And then it seems to have caught up and gets going again.

I didn't have this problem on my four year old iMac (with 8GB).  Any idea why I am having it now and how to fix it?
