I’ve been using Smart Shooter 4 for product photography for four years now. I shoot Nikon and run it on Mac. The software has always been sluggish and unresponsive, even on powerful Mac computers, but I always assumed these were just the quirks of a program from a smaller development team.
Today, fed up with the tug of war I was having with the program, I downloaded it to a spare Windows laptop. Lo and behold, this program actually works great. It’s snappy, it’s responsive, focus stacking doesn’t have to “think” for an eternity, and the focus square actually moves where it’s supposed to move. I’m flummoxed. Is it a known fact that this runs so much better on Windows? Or am I missing something with how I’m running it on my Mac?
