Photoshop CS6 Trial crashes constantly with 3D objects

May 29, 2012 7:01 PM

Photoshop CS6 is extremely unstable for me when I try and do any 3D editing. It crashes when I try to move, scale, and otherwise orient the object. It crashes when I try to do Snap to Ground Plane. When it doesn't crash at Snap to Ground Plane, the command doesn't work and nothing snaps to the ground plane.

 

Here's a 1 minute video of it crashing. The first part shows that I've already defined the ground plane. The second part shows me wanting to put a peice of furniture into the room and finding the Snap to Ground Plane option. When I click it, the program crashes.

I already have the latest drivers for my HD 5650, and I can't upgrade my video card because it's a laptop.

 

Any options short of spending $1000+ to get a new video card?

 

Screenshots of my preferences - if I disable the use of my graphics processor I no longer have any 3D functionality in Photoshop, if I set my drawing mode to Advanced and place checkmarks on things it crashes as well:

    Not a expert at reading this stuff but if I see correctly you can increase the ram to PS by 2 gig, and that will leave about  2.2 gig for computer which is plenty.

     

    Also, you are using an old video card driver 8.7xx.  The best ATI driver now is the 12.2.  THe latest 12.4 has some problelms with CS6.

     

    You do not need an expensive card, what you have is fine.

    Hi,

     

    What is your laptop manufacturer and model? It most likely is the video card driver given the reported driver date. Have you faired any better using the 64-bit version of Ps?

     

    regards,

    steve
