Topaz Photo AI v2.2.1

Curious if yours is an Intel MacBook Pro or M-series.

Topaz apps on Intel Macs, no longer a good match…

M1 Pro for the MacBook Pro 16“.
And a Mac Studio M2 Ultra

OK good, nice Macs :wink:

Do some tests with all other apps quit and see if it helps. Also restart beforehand just for fun (in case of memory leaks from the OS or apps).

I just saw that you asked the original poster, not me (got confused by the answer notification) - so forget about my answer as I do not have problems (other than the known ones).

I got confused too, we’re even! Advice still stands though :wink:

I had read that many have these issues with it taking tiresome time to process unless you have a super fast gpu. I love my mac, but sometimes wonder if I wouldn’t do better with doing my editing on a pc. How have you liked your edits on a pc compared to a mac, since you are testing.

Mine is an Intel since I bought when M1 had just come out on the market and they still had questions about its compatibility with many apps that I was using. I wish I had realized just how serious I would get about this in such a short period of time and the necessity for more processing power.

Yeah, the M series Macs chew through Topaz processes. The Intels struggle.

The M2 Mini and a third-party monitor would be a good desktop entry for you since you already have a laptop. I use an M2 Mini 500/16 and it’s such a joy. In the office I sometimes fire up Topaz apps on a 2017 SSD Intel iMac to do screenshots (if I don’t use the M1 MacBook Pro) and it’s painful slow.

Apple Silicon is considerably faster in TPAI (while unfortunately struggling in TVAI).

An M1 Pro runs circles around the PC with i7 13700 and RTX 4060.

Happy New Year 2024! Olympus ORF Files doesn’t have any lenscorrection. 1st I thought it would be an issue because of an old windows setup. Today I made a complete new Windows 10 Setup and a new Topas PAI installation (with a clean system now).
Is it possible to make TPAI aible for Olympus *.ORF lenscorrection?



If you go to the Lensfun website it will tell you which lenses are supported …
