Bridge freezes when applying camera raw settings to large number of files

Apr 13, 2012 1:23 PM

Tags: #crash #bridge_cs6 #cs6-beta

I have a folder with 32,000 frames from a time-lapse project that I'm doing. I'd like to apply the same camera raw adjustments to all of these files, and so follow one of the two methods below - neither of which are working with such a large set of files:

Method 1:

  1. Select all files, open in camera raw.
  2. Apply changes to the first image
  3. Select all images, then synchronize the changes to all other images.

Unfortunately selecting "Open in Camera Raw..." just leaves bridge to hang. It's using a lot of memory and processor time, so I would assume it's working, but there's no progress bar or similar to indicate that it is.

 

Method 2:

  1. Open first file in Camera Raw
  2. Apply all changes, and exit camera raw.
  3. Select all files in Bridge, right click on one and select "Develop Settings -> Previous Conversion"

Unfortunately the final step again leaves bridge just thinking. I waited around an hour, closed bridge, but unfortunately when I opened it again there was no sign that it had copied the camera raw settings onto any of the other files. My computer's pretty slow (see below) but it should have written one xmp file in an hour.

 

Question:

Does anyone have any workarounds other than repeating the process 32 times for 1000 images at a time?

    While I have not had to use this option it appears you do not need to open images in ACR which would save a huge amount of resources.

     

    Will this method work for you?

     

    Copy and paste Camera Raw settings

     

    In Adobe Bridge, you can copy and paste the Camera Raw settings from one image file to another.

    1. In Adobe Bridge, select a file and choose Edit > Develop Settings > Copy Camera Raw Settings.
    2. Select one or more files and choose Edit > Develop Settings > Paste Camera Raw Settings.
      You can also right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) image files to copy and paste using the context menu.
    3. In the Paste Camera Raw Settings dialog box, choose which settings to apply.

    Are you trying to do all 32,000 pictures at once?  May be just too much for resources of computer.

     

    If you do 100 do you still get the same error and crash?

     

    If so call up the Event Log in your OS.

     

    It is mostly gibberish, but try to find an entry for defaulting module.  This is where the error lies.

    Why on earth would the dialogue not appear with larger numbers, surely the dialogue is the same regardless of the number of images I'm altering??

     

    Did you try to alter one file and save as a ACR setting, then in Bridge select all files and right mouse click choose the saved setting to apply.

     

    However without knowing your file size (and your free space on HD) I have to say all files need to recache and this is a big task with this kind of numbers and an even bigger tasks when they are Raw files from 8 MP above. You better leave it overnight for trying

     

    Be sure to have bridge Cache size set to more then the default and it would not hurt either to increase the cache size for the ACR database.

     

    And if you use it over a network or a separate disk it is even a bigger task.

    The files are only 2MP each, and I have the same issue when I apply the changes to RAW files and JPG files. The error occurs though before any changes are applied, before the images would need to be recached, as when the error doesn't occur the dialogue box I mentioned pops up asking what to change.

     

     

    Your specs sound more then enough I would think. Do you have set the option to Write cache to folders when possible and if so could you uncheck that option?

     

    I don't have experience with this kind of numbers but I do dump the Bridge cache manually on a regular base (every new cycle it seems to be more stable so more interval in the periods of dumping cache) but my main folder contains usually around 6 to 7 K of DNG files from 21 MP dSLR. This starts caching without problems but takes a few hours before done.

     

    Can't use the option cache for folder due to a longstanding problem with error message to replace the CacheT file, hence my question about your setting.

     

    Also I have set the option to previews Always HQ and in the prefs have set the option to build monitor size previews.

     

    As said, don't know the large numbers but the 2 MP files are very small and it should be possible for Bridge I would think?

     

    Did you also try to create a new folder and place the files inthere. Or divide them in to three folders for testing?

    Would it help to use embedded thrumnails are they are the smallest and fastest to handle?

    What it looks like is it takes a lot longer to load the picutres than to apply the settings.  Which sounds right to me as he metadata data is a lot smaller than the image size.
