    Lighting Effects renders black, or very dark.

      Hi,

       

      I have been faced with an almost identical problem listed here - http://forums.adobe.com/message/5486667#5486667

       

      However, the solution listed has not helped me.

       

      The only thing that changes it from complete blackness is the "Ambience" value.

       

      I've done all software and hardware updates, reinstalled the graphics card driver, and restarted a multitude of times.

       

      I am using:

       

      Dell Optiplex 390

      Intel(R) HD Graphics 2000

      Windows 7 64 bit

      Photoshop CC

      No Color Management

      No plug-ins, or anything other than default PS settings

       

      If it helps, I used Lighting Effects on Photoshop CS3 and CS6 for almost two years on this machine with no problem. This was the first time I had tried to use it since I upgraded to CC. I uninstalled all other versions of PS when I upgraded, so I have not tried to replicate the problem in older versions.

       

      I have attached screenshots for reference.
