Masking with a brush is slow to render or even recognize that I'm masking. Lots of beachballs

I've been editing some engagement photos off and on this past month. I was having zero issues making edits, using masks with lots of updates. I had to take a break for about two weeks and when I went back to doing the same thing I was doing before it was almost unusable. I would go to add/subtract from a mask and when I was done it would beachball for a few seconds then render. I would start again and it wouldn't even recognize that I had started again so I would have to wait again for several seconds and try again hoping it would work.

 

I've made sure LRC and Camera raw were up to date. I updated my OS to the latest version. I moved some content to an external to free up hard drive space. I updated the driver for my Wacom Intuos S. I increased the camera raw cache from 5 to 10GB and turned off "generate previews in parallel" as suggested by a post somewhere else. It still does the same thing.

 

So I figure I would try here since I haven't seen anyone posting with a mac with an M1 chip.

Can you double that Camera RAW limit and see what happens?

Same problem here.  Using M1 chip on iMac 24" Sonoma 14.5.  LrC v. 13.3.  Beachballing seems to start after using the program for a while.  Also, the brush intermittently shows strokes when using the mask and at times doesn't show them at all.  On a good note, the eyedropper seems to work when on WB now.  Camera Raw limit was already set to 10 and have increased it to 20 to see if that makes a difference.  Everything was working fine prior to the latest update.

This thread is nearly two years old, is using an OS  2 genrtaions back and LrC itself is two full versions newer. Therefore, it's highly unlikely that the issue you're experiencing is the same or even related to the OPs. Therefore, I recommend that you start a new thread, provide a description of the issue. You should also include a copy of your System Info. This can be obtained from the LrC Help > System Info menu item.
