Can anyone verify whether the new 2022 version has fixed the memory leak(s) when importing media into the Organizer?
Thanks for the idea; in case anyone else comes looking with the same question, the answer is a clear and hearty "No". Importing 200 1080p .mov files I can watch it burn through all 32GB of my memory -- it should not look like this:
Note that all media analysis is turned off; it seems to do just fine with lower-quality .mov files. Disappointing -- it would at least help if in importing you could specify "Just images" etc while still traversing subdirectories, but no.
It would help if you could post photos that we could actually see- the ones you posted are pretty gosh darn tiny.
You need to provide more information to get a better quality response. Information like whether or not the memory gets released after importing is complete? How much system ram do you have installed? Have you been monkeying around with your preference settings- in particualar the scratch disk size / location?
What other information shall I provide to get a better quality response?
Bigger images please, in particular the first one. What you posted is too small to be of any use.
even if your ram usage is close to 100% all it means is that your HDD would be used to hold the temp data. I had a 1TB SSD- I literally don't care how much ram gets used--- it's response time is much quicker than a regulad HDD.
Consider breaking the import down into chunks-- 50 videos at a time for example.
I just did a test: I imported 159 video files (of course you're not really importing them) about 60 GB of data into organizer, from an external HDD -I also monitored everything in task manager while it was doign it: The total, memory usage did not exceed 82%, CPU usage did not exceed 64% Organizer, at the most, was using a little less than 2 GB of ram.
All that to me indicates to me that it is not the software, but rather something on your computer that is cuasing this behavior. Granted, it's just one computer, a not even close to being fancy one, but I had zero issues- and it took less than a minute to "import" 159 video files.
I just search the external HDD, shoved all the video files I could find in one partition into their own folder, and imported the contents of that folder directly into organizer.
I think i found a fix without a fix. Had the same issue one to one as described. All i had to do was create a new Caatalog, configure the watch folders, drum roll><><> this is the important part, you must wait for it to search all folders before importing. I guess just a little patiance.
I can verify that it is still a mess with HEVC files. I can only import a few hundred files at a time - or it freezes and crashes my computer due to memory leaks. Amazing that it is still unusable. Don't waste your time.
