I have been using Silver FX 2 for a long while. Using version 3 is definitely slowing down my productivity.
Previously V2 opened with my custom presets page open as it was the page I always used, I now have to select it each time I open the program.
When batch editing each image kept the settings I applied to the one before allowing minor tweaks. I now have to select the preset and reprocess each image.
I now have to wait for V3 to think about each preset before it applies it, a minor matter for an odd conversion but I do anything up to 60 in a session so speed matters.
In its present form would I recommend an update based on the fact the SFX is the only part of the collection that I regularly use? No i wouldn’t, the actual black and whites are not really that different to V2 and the speed issue is a killer for me I’ll probably have to go back to lightroom presets until theres an update.
