when i open the filter, 10-15 seconds later the screen goes black then white and an error message pops up saying that the nvidea "driver crashed and has recovered."
i cant turn off openGl becuase i won't be able to sue that filter.
The driver update didn't help but it did show what the problem is
It says that the driver cannot handle the oil paint filter memory usage
Is there a specific setting I need to change for photoshop
In the nvidea driver control panel, I have played with the
Settings but has nt made a difference yet
Do you have Photoshop CS6 Extended? If so there's a Preferences panel called 3D where you can set the amount of graphics processor memory Photoshop is to use. I'm not completely sure that affects the GPU usage in non-3D operations, but it's worth looking into.
