    Are you using a SSD? This may be related to using a slower hard drive.

    I was thinking that too.

    The large library is on a Seagate Barracuda HDD 2TB, it runs at 7200RPM, the program is on a partition separated from the OS on an SSD (Samsung 970 EVO Plus 500GB NVME), I've tested both and with Quixel Bridge and same result.

    I've uploaded some other video's to show how Quixel Bridge performs, with that there is slight noticeable lag and sometimes the files stop downloading near the end so I have to manually pause and restart the downloads from scratch to finish them if downloading several files at sametime, and the export takes a longtime, the big issue's these programs also face is when there is no internet connection and you try and launch them, Quixel Bridge hangs in memory and uses alot of power at that point so it has to be forcefully closed in Task Manager, and for Quixel Mixer there's no option to Set the Library or do much when you first start the program without first creating a New Project, Add a New Mix to an existing project, or opening an existing one.

    Hello, I have the same problem
    Take something like 1 minute (sometimes more) to open or type a research

    Surely caused by 2000 local assets...

    Maybe the fact that UE4 is open with also a lot of assets is not helping as well

    I think about erasing all local content, I'll have to redownload all 8K or 4K texture I already have....
