Aperture, why soooo slow??


play thing
I'm running Aperture 3.3.1 on a MBP 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 4GB RAM.
Aperture is hideously slow. Is there a trick for speeding it up?

I don't own Aperture so I am not sure. But i know in iPhoto, iPhoto has it's own garbage that has to be emptied separately from the main Trash. Is it the same way in Aperture?


I'm cool, I have a mac.
Would you happen to be running Mac OS X Lion? I found that Aperture started sucking when I installed Lion on my Core 2 Duo because it really pushed the CPU to the limit, but it ran relatively fast with Snow Leopard.
