Very slow integration with demo version
I have been experiencing very slow integration times using the demo version. Yesterday it took just a few min. short of 3hrs to do 100 L, 30 D, 30 bias frames. The fit files were 40m. Using a late 2015 iMac, quad core I7 4G, 24G ram, 8g ram set for APP use. Is this slow integration normal or am I doing something incorrectly? Thanks
A bit difficult to judge as it’ll depend on the settings you used, but a 100 subs with LNC etc. on might take that time yes. APP isn’t as fast as some other packages, but this is also due to the more complex algorithms it uses. This is intentional as it produces better data.
