I created an image with several 3D layers with CS6. CS6 crashed (no real information about the problem, just saying appcrash on Win7 64Bit system). When I reopen the image CS6 tells me that 3D is not available anymore because OpenGL is not turned on. When I open the same image with CS5 it works without problems (on the same computer with same os).
What I did:
- reinstalled the graphics card driver
- made sure OpenGL is turned on
- restarted computer
What I didn't do:
- reinstall PS CS6
Anybody experiencing the same problem or any suggestion?
Your video card driver has a bug that caused a crash while inside the driver, and Photoshop disabled OpenGL because the driver crashed.
You'll need to update the driver from the GPU maker's website before Photoshop will try to use the driver again. (then Photoshop will try to use the GPU until it crashes again)
A lot of people seem to ask the question, "it worked in the old version, why doesn't it work now?"
This is the price we all must pay for the software advancing the state of the art. We have to advance our computer systems to keep up with it!
TibiTaebi, what video card do you have? You're faced with a decision:
The last alternative isn't all that bad. A really decent model can be had for about $100 - e.g., VisionTek ATI Radeon HD 7750. You spent many hundreds of dollars on Photoshop, what's another hundred?
I bought the desktop system 16 months ago and the video card did cost $150 (ATI Radeon HD5770). It's also on this list: http://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/photoshop-cs6-gpu-faq.html
This seams to be ok.
I let you know when I solved the problem.
Thanks for your comment.
