The media browser in HoudahGeo 5.1.5 takes a very, very long time to load the content of my Photos 1.5 library. My Photos library contains approximately 50000 photos and videos, approximately 1000 albums and perhaps a few thousand smart albums.
When I start HoudahGeo and then click on my Photos library in HoudahGeo's media browser, it takes over one hour before HoudahGeo displays the contents of my Photos library. During this very long waiting period, HoudahGeo displays a spinning/rotating icon next to the Photos library in the media browser. Eventually (after over an hour), the contents of my Photos library do appear in HoudahGeo's media browser and then I can work normally with all items from my Photos library.
I think it is reasonable to expect that the media browser should load in much, much less than one hour. Does anyone else experience a similar problem? Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can get the media browser to load more quickly?
I am evaluating HoudahGeo 5.1.5 for use with my Photos 1.5 library on MacOS 10.11.6. I plan to upgrade to Photos 2 and MacOS 10.12 Sierra as soon as I know HoudahGeo works well enough with Photos so that I can stop using Aperture for geocoding.
I created my Photos 1.5 library by importing my Aperture library. This process went well and I can see all of the items from my Aperture library in my newly created Photos library.
Any suggestions will be most appreciated.
