SILKYPIX uses a preview system that first displays a lower resolution preview by region while executing the higher resolution preview in the background. When you set development parameters, you have to wait until the preview is completed. These tips should help improve the refresh rate while you are working with your photo.

Here are some tips we found help to improve the refresh rate so you can get your work done faster.

Reduce the Preview Window Size in SILKYPIX

Since SILKYPIX prioritizes refreshing only the visible portion of your photo, the smaller the preview window size, the faster the refresh rate.

Increase Display Magnification in SILKYPIX

Much like reducing the preview window size, visible portions of your photo are refreshed, and magnification does not create any additional overhead than window size.

Set the Color Distortion to 0

Color distortion in SILKYPIX reduces not only high frequency color noise but also low frequency color noise, so this function can dramatically increase CPU usage. Set this to 0 while adjusting other parameters so that it doesn't occupy CPU processing when it is not needed.

Reduce the Domosaicing Sharpness in SILKYPIX

Go to Development Settings > Demosaicing Sharpness and set the slider to minimum. As you otherwise make adjustments in your photo, this setting is also a part of the refresh process. For more information on this topic, see the documentation "10.1.4. Relationship between Demosaicing Sharpness and Picture Quality."
