Agree, I am trying out Capture One 11 now and it it has local adjustments. Also a very good catalog system. And that for 300 Euro. But I have to say, the prime noise reduction is great for the theater work I do.

DxO OpticsPro (Windows) / Re: DxO Network Based Processing
« Last post by Bencsi on August 16, 2017, 07:28:43 am »
Based om wyliec2 test I made same - or similar - time comparison. In my case a network NAS ( through gigabit connection ) give me similar processing time as per files location in SSD or a HDD. By the way, in the past I tested a RAMDisk application to speed up the image processing. Unfortunately it had no advantage at all to SSD / HDD. The RAMDisk throughput was >5000 Mb/s compare to SSD 345 Mb/s and 140 Mb/s of HDD.

If such time lag existing, let me recommend to cut the DoP processing 2 parts:
1. make the image processing to a local quick drive
2. make an automatic image copy from local drive to network drive independently. The task should separate the transfer from image processing. Such task is a typical backup job. I use Cobian Backup Utility for daily save. After copy of all images, a simple batch file can delete the TEMP folder.

I have done significant benchmarking with DxO primarily comparing CPU and direct attached HD and SSD.  For input/output files, I haven't seen DxO be especially sensitive to HD vs SSD given the processing overhead and reading/writing 20-40MB image files is not taxing - likely fits into most HD cache and is written before the cache fills up.

I did a comparison of 12 24MB RAW images processing using HIGH noise reduction and got the following results (note using same device for input and output):
* 41 seconds on NVMe SSD
* 41 seconds on SATA 3 HD
* 49 seconds on USB 3.0 flash drive
* 71 seconds on Gigabit Network location

Other info:
- The network connection and devices had virtually no other competing traffic.
- Using PRIME NR would reduce the percentage difference since there is longer process time with unchanged read/write.
- Test done on I7-5960x at 4.3 Ghz; 32 GB RAM; 2 concurrent images.

I have looked at 10Gb Ethernet - I would expect you could equip a NAS, a few PCs with 10Gig Ethernet adapters and get a 10Gb switch for $1000 - $1500.

Given the overhead of network processing of relatively small files and application-direct read/writing I don't know that 10Gb Ethernet would get you from (in my example) from 71 seconds down to 41 seconds??

I think it boils down to a time vs money decision for a 30% or so reduction in throughput time.

DxO OpticsPro (Mac) / Judas
« Last post by Allsop on August 14, 2017, 09:50:33 pm »
First of my new project on The Apostles. I have been putting off Judas for a while as I could not find the right image of someone in a very dark place until I found this poor soul in an underpass in Sheffield, he even had some money laid out beside him.  Strangely I felt that until I could get Judas right the project as a whole would not be viable. I would appreciate comments especially whether or not it works for you as illustrative of the theme of Judas. DxO Optics Pro has enabled me to achieve a result that I could only imagine without it.  I would appreciate comments especially whether or not it works for you as illustrative of the theme of Judas. https://andrew-bedephotography.smugmug.com/The-Apostles/i-DFt36HG/A

I'm running High Sierra beta and am having no trouble with DxO Optics Pro 11.
