When you import a file, we first compress it and then upload it. File compression is dependent mainly on your computer's CPU, and file upload speed is dependent on your internet connection.
For both steps, we have fairly minimal requirements, but for the best experience we recommend a multi-core processor and at least 2Mbps or greater.
Cquence must remain open to both compress and upload files. We recommend leaving it open in the background, or if you have many files, importing them in batches overnight.
