Best texture file format for Karma May 14, 2021, 11:20 a.m.

I'm wondering, what is the best file format for textures in Karma?
Because recently I've been having some problems right after launching Karma in newly open scenes with like 3 megascans and handful of 8k .exr textures. It nearly stops progressing for anywhere between 30 seconds and 5 minutes. Once it passes this stage however it's all superfast and interactive, like it's supposed to. Then even when I jump to Houdini GL and back to Karma it's all smooth. I can change shader parameters. Anything. No problem.

I had the same problem with .jpg textures. Do I need to convert all my to textures to .rat format or is 8k too much for Karma or what's the deal? Am I missing something? Without textures it's fine, so it's gotta be the textures.
