I figured out i don't need previews since me use photo-mechanic.

For the most part I am happy with the development module speed with smart previews.

The smart preview option I use is I generate them and then change folder name so Lr can not find the files.

I mention this because you can use option in the preference folder to use smart-previews.
I just like removing something else the software has to check.
seemed a little slower in this mode of smart-previews.

I use 1:1 previews. Also cull in LR.
no issues what so ever.
If the previews do take to much space you can always delete them once the files are delivered.

Ditto here. I always delete preview folders for my archive. If I ever need to work the job again, I just drag it all back to the desktop. Rendering takes little time.

Adobe sucks, but I've never had issues with LR. Seems like most unhappy peeps are Mac peeps.

They probably use a third party culling app... and they're MAC owners.

I put 1:1 and happy but it depends on the drive where the previews are written and the originals stored. If my previews and originals are on SSD's or a RAID I'm happy. Reading images from a single spinning drive is a huge slow down and PITA. I recently changed from a Mac pro to a Surface Studio and I like everything about it except the fusion drive which is a giant wet turd of a thing. Having working images on an external SSD is fine but as it's only USB3 it's still not quite as fast between images as my Mac Pro was with a thunderbolt Pegasus array.

I have one of my second shooters help me with culling certain weddings. For him I just give the LR cat + the smart previews. I've been generating the standard previews for my own culling and haven't had an issue. Develop mode is very slow, though.

I'm far too entrenched in the LR system and any change would be too massive an upheaval for me right now.

I am doing everything right and I'm still waiting on LR with even smart previews during changes in the develop module.

- Everything running from internal flash storage
- Tag in PhotoMechanic and only edit selects with LR
- New Catalog for each wedding/shoot
- Render 1:1 and Smart Previews on import
- Use Graphics Processor checked
- Use Smart Previews checked. (I also rename selects folder to force smart previews)

I'm on a late-2013, maxed out MBP. It's possible a new computer would help., but I don't know what the bottle neck is.

MBP ...as in a workstation or the trash can? or a laptop?
what is the computer model actual release date?

good or bad Lr likes high cpu speed on a couple of cores as in quad.... 4.5 GHz+
and ram...DDR4 @ 16gig...but 32gig makes a difference not night & day.... but like a 10%-15% gain.

GPU matched with screen size matters. 2 gig on a 4K/5K screen sized at 32" is a disaster.

I still get memory leaks ... from time to time. So a restart cleans this up.

To be more specific, even with an incredibly powerful computer I'm ONLY happy with smart previews in develop. Anything else and my system struggles.

Fortunately that solves 98% of the problem for me.

LR hasn't improved diddly squat since going to a subscription model. That's the real issue.

It's obvious all their talent has been working on LR Mobile.

I build standards sized previews, think performance could be improved by going 1:1?

If you want to cull in LR then yes.
Other than that I don't think you'll notice much difference if your computer is adequate.
