Some of my actions cannot run at all, like the Totally Rad Black and white action. Just doesn't work. Some work fine, others will say that the object isn't available, but, you can play through it. Totally Rad actions seem to have the most trouble, but, by no means the only ones. Any input would help
What steps are those that are failing stopping on, specifically? Perhaps a screen grab showing the error and the Actions panel might be helpful for others to diagnose what's happening for you.
For the most part actions made for older versions of Photoshop seem to be compatible, though there are always differences from version to version of Photoshop. It's a bit like getting in a new car and looking for a place to put a key.
Those actions that are not compatible may require that you reconnect with the actions authors and ask for updated CS6-compatible versions, which may cost money.
Being they were fine from CS2 forward, I have a hard time truly thinking that Superstition is that far ahead of CS5 that actions that work fine with it, are too old. Since this is in beta, I am reporting this issue to see if anyone else has had problems and might have a work around. It may be something simple as clicking on a step that I didn't think to do. Its not my first upgrade Just trying to troubleshoot here.
Having the same problem. Have had to re make my actions, they work okay for a while and then fail ..dialog box saying 'such & such command' is not available etc.and I have to re make them again.
Do any of your actions use the Brightness / Contrast filter?
I have found a bug in CS6 with saved actions steps not interpreting the 'Use 'Legacy'' indication properly with that filter.
Mine use channels and curves mainly that are having the issues. I am back in CS5 so I can use them. Some of the new tools are nice, but, at the moment its crippling my workflow and that is no good.
Can we either get a link to the action file in question, or is there a shorter action (less steps, more refined bug report) that we can recreate to work to reproduce the issue you're seeing here?
I can see some obvious things in that action that imply you need to have prepped the image before running it in certain ways. There's a ''Select channel 'Alpha 2''' in there that makes no sense in the context of just what we can see.
You're saying this works in Photoshop CS5 without any errors? If that's the case, somehow I suspect you've disabled error reporting.
If you make a duplicate of it in a separate set and share that set online somewhere I'll be happy to look into it more thoroughly.
