It’s even worse than that, because PI will debayer those such that each channel has per pixel representation, and unless you have compression enabled, the result xisf files will be much larger

I use a solid state scratch “disk” with my (much older) Mac and it speeds things along a bit, especially as I have a tendency to go with (often) hundreds of short-ish subs. Drizzling becomes a click-and-watch-a-movie affair
