Re: DxO PhotoLab vs Lightroom vs CaptureOne

OK, a little bit more on this. I renamed the database file and started PL. Went to a directory where I have about 2600 image files, some of which I had previously edited and exported to JPG. PL shows check marks on the images I edited and exported but doesn't show the edits in the thumbnail. When I click on the thumbnail, it reads the .dop file, applies the edits and updates the thumbnail. So if the database doesn't mark a file as edited and there is a .dop, PL picks up the .dop and applies it. That's what the automatically apply sidecar setting is about.

I think this makes sense. I'd guess that the centralized DB is to speed up processing a large directory of image files. It got about twice as slow in handling big directories when they went from OP to PL. I have a note to myself to spend some time figuring out how to speed that up.
