NLP & Loupdeck CT performance

I use Loupedeck CT and LR. In LR one of the functions I use regularly with NLP is the crop function but the knob for controlling size is jerky and sometimes unresponsive. This only seems to happen when I switch to an image converted by NLP, as it seems like there’s a processing hit when loading the image. This persists for some time, minutes not seconds. Is NLP constantly doing something? are there ways to control plugin processor time/priority?

As soon as I unconverted, crop response comes back

Loupedeck uses the Adobe APIs mostly to talk to LR but can also send keyboard commands.
