Photoshop CS6 OpenGL not working

Tags: #opengl #cs6-photoshop-extended

I have been trying to use the 3D features of Adobe Photoshop CS6 Extended and have been having no success. I have enabled the 'Use Graphics Processor' in the Edit->Preferences->Performance dialog box. I have also ensured that I have the latest version of the drivers installed. The video cards (in a CrossfireX configuration) are Sapphire HD Radeon 7970s. The thing is, when I installed Photoshop a few weeks ago, I tested the 3D functions and they worked fine. Now they no longer do so. I have updated video drivers and Photoshop since then but when I reverted back to the older drivers, the 3D features still didn't work. I have tested OpenGL in Modo 601 and Houdini FX 12 with no problems. I was wondering if I am missing something obvious.

 

Thanks

    Not familiar with the crossfire configuration, but you probalby gain little in PS with 2 cards.  But since they are the same it should work that way.

     

    Is the 3D features grayed out?

     

    What OS?

    Check into the Catalyst 13.2 beta display driver.  It's cleared up several problems with Photoshop seen in every newer version since 12.8, which was a good version for use with Photoshop.  I see they've just released beta 5.  I've been running beta 4 and loving it - so much so I'm not sure I want to change...

    I installed beta 5 yesterday. Everything seems nice and snappy. VRAM is correct at 2GB. No funny black marks in out of gamut colours. Fingers crossed.

    Yes, I'm on Catalyst 13.2 beta 5 now as well - very good progress there.
