17.2 Loading Fairlight Engine

PostFri May 14, 2021 8:26 am

Startup of version 17.2 is faster, thank you.

Still most of the time during startup seems to be spent for loading the Fairlight Engine.

I would very much prefer to move this waiting time to when the Fairlight page ist first used.
Many days I do not use the Fairlight page at all but work on editing and color.

There is a separate forum for Feature Requests.

viewforum.php?f=33

Best practice is to search first, to see if someone already asked. If not, post one idea per thread with a very brief description of the idea in the thread's title.

The Fairlight engine is used for audio on all pages. it has to be installed.

That makes perfect sense Peter.
Thanks for the clarification.

Agree Peter, but I don't think it should 'load' for 4 minutes. Just like here:


I also had this long loading time for the first start. Updated from 17.1 studio.

The first time I started version 17.2, the Failight engine needed about 50 seconds to load.
Now it is down to 5 to 7 seconds, which is still the longest loading item, but not a problem.
All other items load in 0.5 seconds or less.
