Importing a 900 MB tif file (~1800 frames) in Python takes ~9 seconds. The same file takes ~50 seconds to import in Mathematica. If the file size is ~150 MB then for Python takes ~2.5 s while MMA import it in 6 s. If I use
Import[myfile, "Data"] then for the 900 MB image it takes ~100 s.
Does anybody know why it is slower in MMA to import tif files. I use version 11.3.
I found two other questions going back to 6 years ago! How can I fix this problem?
