Re: Topaz AI Sharpen Processing Time

I had some time on my hand so what the heck. I decided to time AI on my computer. A HP Envy 360, i5. Does fine with 99% of my work. Regular work is 4-500meg files.

Let me say from the start that I think AI gives a great result. But as I pointed out in earlier posts it has issues with brackets. And is to slow for my liking.

So I open AI. Load one of my normal tiffs. 135meg, 16 bit, 4000x6000.

Made one small change to the noise recovery from the default 20 to 30. Did an update. 29.45 to update the file. OK. Now I saved it. No Compression. 16bit tiff. sRGB. It took 7minutes and 7 seconds then AI crashed. Not for the first time I may add.

So do I persist with AI? No I have more thing to do than chase bugs for Topaz.

I thought I made a mistake once. But I was wrong!
