First of all my config:
gpu: rtx 3080
ram: 64gb 3600
When I updated camera raw to version 13.0, the crop tool became very slow. Although in version 12.4 everything was ok.
How can this be fixed?
I can confirm this and I have reverted back to version 12.3.
One thing I can't seem to grasp - why does Photoshop, which is way heavier and more demanding application than Camera Raw, work pretty fine, and Camera Raw struggles the moment you begin to drag the adjustment brush?
Just updated too, and find the crop tool to be slow and jumpy.
Try Disabling GPU in the preferences>Preformance, any better?
No, it is all still a bit stop action.
I had tried that already, as it had occurred to me that if Adobe had put in something that comes on automatically and is supposed to speed up things like the crop tool, that it might be the culprit 🙂
Updated to 13.0.2
Still no changes. Enabling/disabling gpu doesnt do anything.
The problem seems to be solved with the release of ACR 220.127.116.114
Just updated to ACR 18.104.22.1684, still finding the crop tool, jumpy and slow, tried with GPU enabled and disabled.
It is not so slow that I can't live with it, but the jumpy movement is annoying and so if it is a precise crop I am after, I am cropping in photoshop, which kind of makes the crop tool in ACR pointless, and adds another process to my workflow.
Not for me. It is totally useless, I cannot work like this.
I have tried it on three different computers but everytime the same story: Slow and jumpy.
I've reverted back to 12.1 which works perfectly fine. However, this is of course just a temporary workaround. It should be addressed by Adobe ASAP.
Sam issue here (running 13.02) on Windows 10. However, I noticed that the crop tool works OK when using my wacom pen. Using the mouse (which I prefer for cropping) I get the same, slow, jumpy repsonse you are describing.
What's even stranger is that on my HP Z book at work (also windows 10) the opposite is true. Both systems running the same version of Camera Raw 13.02.644 but on my Z book I can crop in camera raw fine with the mouse, but my wacom tablet in this case has the jumpy behavior. Maybe it's a USB thing? Maybe certain USB ports are polling faster than others? I'll test when I get home.
Home desktop system specs for reference:

Ok, I found out that the crop tool is working ok with a single image loaded.
With multiple images loaded, the crop tool gets crappy again.
I have found that turning off the filmstrip makes the crop tool work smoothly, so it is a bug there- unless poor performance is a new feature that I am not making correct use of. The filmstrip updates automatically, as you work, which seems to be causing the issue for me.
I don't see how I can turn off the filmstrip. I can hide it, but that doesn't have any positive effect on the cropping. Still slow and jumpy.
Was really hoping the new release of 13.1 would fix this issue with the crop but this wasn't addressed. Very disappointed as I know this thread is the only place this issue has been brought up.
Any fix in 13.1.1?
I just updated it and it seem to work a bit better with multiple images loaded and then using the crop tool using a Macbook Pro.
I found no difference after updating on my Windows 10 mahcines 😞
Unfortunatly you are right. On Windows it's just the same crappy crop tool.
I wonder if Adobe will ever fix this.
Looks like Adobe doesn't even care
Looks like the new 13.2 update has fixed this behavior on my windows machines. Copr tool is nice and smooth again.. it slows just a touch with multiple images open but it is so much better that previous.
I agree that smoothness has improved with 13.2. Still hoping for a legacy mode option for when you need to work fast on many images, with minimal GPU necessity and visual discontent (ie. not having the images moving all over the place.
