I signed up for an ArcGIS Pro trial at the weekend. That's the latest version, 1.2. It's INSANELY slow, like waiting 10 secs for items in the main menu (eg save or properties) to go from grey to clickable. I created some 3D scenes (local and global) and the rendering quality and speed was just catastrophically bad. I had no idea ArcGIS pro was this bad.
I'm running a core i7 3.5ghz system. My graphics card is quite old, but I don't believe it justifies the abysmal performance that I've witnessed.
So where can I get a trial for Pro 1.1 intsead of 1.2? Clearly 1.2 has some pretty fundamental performance issues that haven't (yet) been discovered by ESRI. I'd like to see how 1.1 compares. I'm hoping it's better as there's simply no way that anyone could release, let alone charge money for, 1.2.
Any other tips gratefully received. I'll make a screengrab video if I have to.
