ACR 6.6 hangs PS5

Dec 13, 2011 9:06 AM

Tags: #cs5 #bug #camera_raw #6.5 #6.6

This morning I upgraded from ACR 6.5 to ACR 6.6.  Under 6.6, when I do a "Save Image" (lower left of ACR screen), it hangs PS and I have to do a Force Quit out of PS.  On the other hand, if I do an "Open Image" from 6.6, I get into PS OK and can successesfully Save AS from PS to the same folder I wanted to write to with Save Image.  But saving images one at a time from PS is a little tedious!

 

OS X 10.6.8

PS 12.0.4 x64

Bridge 4.0.5.11

 

How can I make this problem go away?  Do I have to revert to ACR 6.5?  If so, how do I do that?

    Can you please go to this location:

    Library/Application Support/Adobe/Plug-ins/CS5/File Formats

    and make sure you only have one Camera Raw.plugin file in that folder? If there's more than one, Get Info on each, and keep the version 6.6 one in that folder, and move any others out of that folder.

     

    Another thing to try is to repair permissions on your hard disk, especially if you haven't done so in a while:

    Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility. Select your hard disk on the left, and select Repair Disk Permissions.

    Can you also specify what type(s) of files you are using (i.e. NEF, CR2, etc.)?  And how often does this issue arise?  I was not able to encounter this issue on an identical setup.

    Jim,

     

    First, our testing department is looking into this issue.

     

    Second, to revert back to CR 6.5, you do not need to uninstall Photoshop. Just remove the Camera Raw.plugin file in the location above, and download the 6.5 version of Camera Raw, and install it. You can download it here:

    Jim,

     

    Unfortunately, manually removing the Camera Raw plugin and running a previous Camera Raw Updater will not successfully reinstall the previous version of Camera Raw.

     

    Please feel free to email me at johnkwon@adobe.com with a sample set of files that you are experiencing this issue with.  This will make it easier for us to try and diagnose the issue.

     

    Thanks!

    Jim,

     

    Glad you got 6.5 back up and running.

     

    Please shoot me an email and I will reply with further instructions.

     

    Thanks!

    You can try to clear cache of camera raw 6.6. I think that helped me.

    We are still looking into this issue. In the meantime, instead of force quit, let it ‘hang’ for a few minutes (I heard 1min to 5min), and the file should eventually open. After the file is opened the first time, plugin should be perform afterwards.

     

    Thanks,

    Michelle

    So Im not alone. But for me its much more annoying because usually I open 1000 - 2000 RAW files. And in 6.6 any time Licensed Standard Photoshop CS5 could hang. And it can be in any moment - when deleting file or just switch from one to another in list. Or when I make changes to the group of foto. And it could be when I open 2000 foto - or just 200. And again for its very sad because foto is my hobby not work - and I didnt have much time for it - before 6.6 I could early in the morning open fotos - make changes for some and stay all to evening when after my son go to sleep I can process rest of it.

     

     

    My camera - Sony SLT A77

    files in ACR format.

    PC i7-2600K, 16 Gb RAM, 64 Gb SSD System, 600 Gb WD 10 rpm HDD for Adobe cache, GTX 580 video. Win 7 64 bit (Using only 64 bit CS too) Max - license.

     

    And I have several questions -

    1) Why xmp files didnt generates at moment when  I make correction to foto? But makes modified file with size of original foto in cache folder.

    2) Why ACR didnt use memory  (I allow him 12 Gb of memory usage) but when I open 2000 files 25 - 26 Mb each - only 20 - 22% of memory is used (and 15% is usually grabbed by system at startup)

    3) Why when CS crashed after all I couldnt got back my edits of pictures from cache - there is all modified files - but I couldnt open them myself - and CS didnt use them when I open original RAW again after crash.

    4) Why there is no CS official plugin management - for now I must reinstall Photoshop - made all updates except ACR automatically - and after that manually install ACR 6.5?

    Hi,

    I have exactly the same problem!!!

    I am using Win 7 64 bit, Photoshop CS5 (64bit) and just upgrade camera raw 6.5 to 6.6 and now some random Nikon D700 NEF file freezing the photoshop. And also when I force close program from task manager, sometimes it also damage the NEF file aswell!!!

    Same problem here. ACR 6.6 freezes even if switch from one image to another.

     

    I need an advice - how to recover my changes of pictures when ACR is freezed now and I can not save .xmp ? Is all my work on hundreds of pictures gone??? I think there must be some cache files, where ACR have common changes saved. Or is it only in ram?

    Hello! Can anybody tell - was that problem fixed in 6.7 RC1 version. I didnt want to make experiments on own fotos - too much fotos too low time to workout.
