I recently bought (upgraded) to capture NX 1.1, from NC 4.4. I still use 4.4 but wanted to give a NX another try. 1.1 seems improved over the last time I tried NX (beta version). I still do not like the interface but I like the things I can do with NX and the final output is nice as well. I was hopeful the batch processing speed would be improved. Not really IMO. NX batch is very slow, at least on my PC. My questions are: 1) Are there any tricks or settings in NX that can speed up processing? 2) How does NX batch compare to CS3, Aperture, Bibble? As far as batch processing speed and quality? Note: I still find myself using RSE for ease of use and fairly quick batch processing and still am searching for a RAW Processor where I can process a large group of pictures fairly quickly. I do use NC and NX and CS3 for editing/processing for that 1 or 2 pictures that I really like and want optimal results.
