    Spin and Path blur have blank Effect Tab - spin blur works but no strobe controls visible; tool reset is greyed out - how to fix this?

    MCMimagery

      blur-effects.jpgwhen using the Blur Gallery Spin or Path blurs, there is a blank Blur Effects tab and no Motion Blur Effects tab.  The tool reset is greyed out.  The Blur Tools tab works. The Field, Irris and Tilt-shift blurs do have a functioning effect tab.  Any suggestion as to how to get the Spin and Path blurs to work as advertised would be greatly appreciated.

      Thank you

          WIthout proper system info and other details like what dicuments and selections nobody can say anything.

            Look to the right of the various blur types where there is a check box.  Either Field or Iris need to be ticked for the Effects tab to become active.  You only have Spin ticked in your screen shot.

             

            BTW  Thanks for the screen grab.  You might have been short on system info, but the screen grab was a great help!

              Hmmm...   I can't make the Motion Blur effects tab disappear.  I wonder if it is GPU dependant?

              [EDIT]  The Motion effects tab is not GPU dependent, but can be closed with a right click.   The only way I could reopen it was to click on the Blur Gallery drop-down and choose Reset.  Did you say your reset was greyed out?

                The screen shot below shows my issues with the Blur Gallery.  I can not reset- that is greyed out.  The Blur Tools Tab gives me working parameters for the five blur types.  There is nothing that shows in the Blur Effects tab.  From what I have gathered so far this seems to be a GPU/graphics card issue.  I have a NVIDIA GeForce GT 440 which Adobe's web site says tested fine for CS6 and CC (no mention of CC2014).  I have not found a list of tested cards for CC 2014.  I ordered a new graphics card and will follow-up here with how well Ps CC 2014 plays with it (Gigabyte GTX780 GDDR5-3GB 2xDVI/HDMI/DP OC Graphics Card GV-N780OC-3GD REV2.0)

                • 5. Re: Spin and Path blur have blank Effect Tab - spin blur works but no strobe controls visible; tool reset is greyed out - how to fix this?
                  Earth Oliver Level 3

                  Having the same issue here on Mavericks with an nvidia 780. Effect controls appear with all the other blurs, but not the new ones.

                   

                  Why is there more than one tab for the blurs? Shouldn't they all just be sharing the same tab?

                    Reset the blur gallery.  See this thread:  https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1512198?q=blur%20effects

                     

                    I had the issue too.  In my case the entire blur gallery panel was missing.  I accidentally closed it – I think?
