The limit for plugin file formats in CS6 was 2 Gigabytes, not 250 Meg.
What exactly are you having problems with?
Wow, thanks for getting back to me!!
I am running the latest version of HDR Soft Photomatix Tone Mapping Plug-In - Version 2.2 in Photoshop CS6 on a fully loaded solid state MacBook Air. When I attempt to process files exceeding 250 mb with the plugin I get an error message and the plugin will not work. The plugin works fine with anything south of 250 mb. I have also optimized the performance settings in CS6 for large file sizes.
The standalone version of HRD Soft’s Photomatix Pro easily processes files well in excess of 300 mb.
I have contacted Photomatix support and they say that 250megs is simply the max file size that Photoshop will allow to run a plugin with.
So is there any setting that I’m overlooking in Photoshop CS6 that will allow me to process these large files with the plugin? Or if there is indeed a file size limit for plugin processing in CS6 is the limit higher in CC?
Thanks in advance for your help.
That means there is a problem with the plugin itself.
Photoshop only imposes a limit on file format plugins saving files, because most formats do not allow data over 2 Gig.
Photoshop CC improves on that by allowing file format plugins to specify their own file size limit.
No, there is no setting that the user can change, because the limits are defined when the plugin is written.
I'm sorry to hear that you got bad information from Photomatix support.
