Thank you Amaury. I'm sorry for posting something like "we should have the OFF switch for the new browsing style" when you as a staff's member is trying to solve people problems. Nice work from the technical staff. Please, is there a chance the "marking/commercial staff" could take in account the "kill feature" thing, because I'm sure you don't even have the rights to make it an option or write an allusion about it ?Amaury wrote:Hi,
To answer a few questions from this thread:
- Offering a 'don't scan this folder' feature is not simple and not a quick fix. The browser is build to display data from a database, only. We can imagine a way to display data from the file system only, but this has to be considered as a feature of its own. Not only is it a technical change that's not too small, but we'd also need to provide clarity in the GUI about what is behaving as a registered folder using features such as fast search, filtering contents in Hot-Swap mode, and what is just showing files on the hard drive, possibly to way to move from one to the other "worlds". It is imaginable, but at this moment we are working on improving indexer performances because that is what may potentially impact all users and will clear the ground for other desires.
- We are working on speeding up the indexer with the goals that files show as fast as possible during an initial scan, and that there is no negative impact on each start of the program while folders are already registered. So far it is known that initial scan takes way too long, and that scanning for changes on each start of Live also takes too long, and may impact playback on OSX. These are the three things we are working on addressing.
Thanks again and regards Amaury
