Issues with Lighting Effects

Jul 23, 2012 7:54 PM

Filter - Render - Lighting Effects seems to be somewhat less than perfectly functional for me.

 

Unlike another recent poster, I'm seeing the controls okay, but they don't actually seem to work properly.  Worse, I can reliably produce a crash.

 

I have an ATI Radeon HD 5670 and Catalyst 12.6 (latest released) drivers for Windows 7 x64, Advanced mode GPU operation.  My detailed system info can be found here:  Link

 

Chances are this is a display driver issue, but I want Adobe to know about it.

 

Here's what I see...

 

For testing I create a middle-gray square document, 8 bits/channel, sRGB, then start the Lighting Effects filter on it:

If I toggle the preview setting off and on a number of times, this happens:

 

ScreenGrab_07_23_2012_223058.png

 

 

This is reproducible, though it sometimes takes more or less Preview toogles.  Here is the pertinent information from several such Photoshop crashes:

ScreenGrab_07_23_2012_224558.jpg

 

Next I am going to try Normal and Basic mode to see if they make any difference with this problem.  I'll follow up here.

    Hi Noel,

     

    Thanks for reporting this here. I'll see if I can reproduce with my 5870 card first, and then try a 5670 if needed. Do you have anything else set in the Catalyst Control panels or is it a default install?

     

    regards,

    steve

    Noel, followed your example and no crashes on my system (Intel 4000 card with latest production drivers) but horribly slow, probably the slowest filter I have ever tried - Basically unusable.....

    This is the only feature that is sluggish on my system - and I am sure GPU is working so maybe a bug in the GPU acceleration with this filter

    I have Windows 7, 16 gigs ram, and updated drivers, CS6, and when I use the lighting effects it crashes Photoshop.   Same problem as everyone else here.   what can I do?   It seems that no one has a solution!

    While I am not experiencing a crash when using the filter it is woefully slow to initialize (see my post above). But crashes reliably toggling the preview on and off.

     

    Faulting module is msvcr100.dll

     

     

    Here is the capture from the Win7 (x64) Action Center

     

    Crash.JPG

     

    Would be good to get an update on where this issue is as it's been out there a while

    Was this ever resolved?  I'm having the same issue with CS6 crashing after toggling Preview on/off several times while working with Filter > Render > Lighting Effects and I can reliably cause the failure.  I'm on Windows 7 64-bit, PS CS6 realease 13.0.1 x64, using Gigabyte HD7970 with Intel i7-3770 with 32GB RAM (Vingeance).  Performance is excellent on almost all advanced functions in CS6, and this is the only hard failure issue I've experienced.  If I avoid the Preview button at top of screen, I am able to create the effect & save results, and I have found that I can toggle the eyeball on/off on a Smart Object Layer containing the Lighting Effects and that does NOT cause a failure so far...
