    Image black in develop module when using GPU acceleration on Macbook Pro

    _StefanM_ Level 1

      Since the update to Lightroom 6.6, I've been seeing the 'black image bug' in develop module again very frequently.


      Basically 1/3 of my photos appear black when viewing them in the develop module.

      If I select 'View' 'Before', the original is displayed correctly, when switching to 'After' it's black again. Even in split-view the 'Before' side is image, the 'After' side is black.

      If I play around with some settings and then select 'Auto' the image is displayed correctly again.


      If I deactivate GPU acceleration, then all images are displayed correctly, however I would like to use GPU acceleration.


      Any thoughts how to fix the issue?

      Is there some kind of logging that I could activate that would help you to fix the bug?
