Photoshop CS6 - 3D is causing PS to crash regularly

Tags: #3d #crash #render #gpu #cs6



I am doing simple extrusions in 3D.  One or 2 extrusions in a document.  Specifically, earrings.  I have to save every few steps , because PS is going to crash at least once per hour. 


My computer has 12GB RAM, and a 1GB GPU.  My MAC is less than a year old.  It should be able to handle the workload.


When I'm doing 3D I shut down all other programs on my computer.


I have turned up all the preferences inside PS pertaining to performance.


When I save a document the SAVE time is 3-7 seconds.  Each time I hold my breath that it doesnt fail.



The rendering time is over 10 minutes, I cant wait that long.  I would never get any work done.


What else can I do to prevent crashing?

    Have you installed all the Photoshop updates?

    You should be on 13.0.4 or 13.1.2.


    What does the crash report say?

    CS6 is very stable, overall.

    Most of the crashes are due to third party code: drivers, plugins, OS bugs, etc.


    And to find your particular crash in our database I need the crash GUID, machine GUID, or your email address used when submitting them.
