Just updated from Lightroom 3 to Rel.4 .
Im so sorry, that i cant afford so much time for my postproduction of my shootings with the Lightroom 4 engine. Its a real horror working with that Release, waiting seconds to seconds that a picture is developed.....
Is there a way to go back to Rel.3 and convert the catalog from 4 to 3. Or must i do a deinstallation of Rel.4, new Installation of Rel. 3 and start with my old backup catalog 3 ?
Maybe there will be an update in near future or not. At this time Lightroom 3 is the right choice !

You can't down-grade a 4.x catalog.

Installing Lightroom 4 does not get rid of your Lightroom 3 catalog. So that catalog should still be intact on your computer, and you can go back to using Lightroom 3. But don't expect another update to Lightroom 3. That just won't happen. And, based on past performance, it would probably introduce the same problems that Lightroom 4 introduced. There's something not right, everybody realizes that. But, unfortunately, nobody (not even Adobe) can figure out how to resolve the problems. But rest assured that updating Lightroom 3 isn't even being considered.
