Working fast with Nikon View NX-i and Capture NX-D combo

Postby Stany Buyle » Thu 12 May 2016 06:49

I am a long time Nikon software user and even though I have PS and LR, I still prefer Capture NX.

Main complaint about Nikon software is speed.
My recommendations to work fast with NX-i & Capture NX-D software:

  • Use a (fast) SSD to run NX-i & Capture NX-D software
    If you want things to go very fast, use a second SSD for your pictures. (I use a Samsung EVO 840 for OS and programs and a Samsung EVO 850 1Tb for picture storage, viewing and processing)
  • Before starting to sort, preview or PP pictures, always copy your images from your camera CF, SD or XQD card to your SSD
  • For viewing images fast in NX-i :arrow: Menu :arrow: View/Viewer/preview (not RAW)
  • Move your NX-i cache to the SSD. :arrow: Menu :arrow: Edit/options/cache location
  • Move NX-D cache to the SSD. :arrow: Menu :arrow: Edit/preferences/general/specify cache folder

I like better one good shot in a day than 10 bad ones in a second...
