This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom 6 / CC2015: Very slow UI response with background export(s) running

If I'm working in LR and running an (export / preview render / import / file move / metadata save / etc) then the user experience while interacting with LR degrades as these jobs demand more and more CPU resources.

For example, I'd like to be able to export images from one wedding, while starting color correction on another. Currently it's hard to use LR while exporting because the UI lags, sliders become less responsive, etc.

My idea would be to assign these kinds of non-realtime tasks to a separate thread that can run at a "below normal" priority, allowing me to continue working smoothly in LR.

My current only-kinda-workaround is to go into processes on my task manager, and assign Lightroom.exe the "below normal" priority. At least this way I can queue up a bunch of tasks, then go to a different app such as PhotoMechanic and get some things done there. Of course this still doesn't let me continue working in LR itself.
