The Spot Removal tool is slower and considerably less responsive in Lightroom CC than it was in v5.7.

Also, when I use the Radial Filter, the covered area gets blurred for a while before returning to normal.

The video driver is up to date. Last updated about a week ago.

I would still check it.

Something else you can try is to reset your Preferences by closing Lightroom and then holding down [Shift][Alt/Opt] and relaunching Lightroom. When prompted, reset the preferences.

I had similar problem. For me, the answer was switching off the GPU support, then everything went back to normal. So in some cases the GPU support is actually slowing down the program for whatever reason.

I'm having the same issue with the spot removal tool. I'm using a 6 core Mac pro with dual AMD D500 graphic cards. The spot tool lags and slightly freezes in when using it before I can address another spot with the tool.

I'm also noticing a problem with how lightroom cc is rendering previews. It is a whole lot slower. When I switch photos it blurs for a second, then looks like it is rendered but is soft, after another second the sharpness comes back. I didn't have any of these problems with LR5.

That messy preview rendering (I think that for a half second it showed the jpg embedded in the raw file) was also fixed for me by turning off the gpu support.
So try that.

Eiko, yep you're right, turning off the gpu performance in the preferences>performance tab fixed both of my problems. That's a bit of a disappointment though since I was looking forward to LR utilizing the GPU to speed things up. Looks like they still have some work to do in order to iron out the problems.

Thanks for sharing the fix though. At least I'm up and running smoothly again.

I found a working solution for me. I am using a Wacom Pen & Touch M.
If you go to the Wacom Control Panel and choose the app LIGHTROOM, and go to: MAPPING > Use Windows INK. Disable that Microsoft thing and you'll get 2 for 1: You'll get rid of the annoying ripples when you touch the screen in LR, and the healing/Cloning will be considerably faster (Still not perfect, though).
