Horrible preview quality in latest Bridge

I upgraded to the latest version of Bridge an the quality of the previews

a very poor compared to the previous version.

Regardless of the image size and any possible combination of settings

in Bridge, the images are very soft!  Even if the image size is pixel per pixel

exact for the display, i.e. say a 1920x1080 image is in the preview window

and at a size is such that maps perfectly to the display resolution and fits the

preview window.

This is making trying to decide if an image is suitable for my purpose very difficult

as I need to open each image in Photoshop (or some other app) to get a true representation

of the image.  This becomes very,very tedious after a batch run of many images, usually

prepping for web.

This was not an issue at all in the previous version as Bridge rendered the previews

as razor sharp as whatever the source was.

Is this a bug or have settings been changed that there is some obtuse combo

needed to get acceptable quality?

I think I found the solution.

I had to enable "Use Software Rendering" because now it seems that

Bridge no longer plays nice with Nvidia graphics cards.

Way to go Adobe!

I tried that, but it didn't solve this issue.  It's a dramatic reduction in image quality.  I'm wondering if some other setting was changed, but haven't found one yet that fixes this....

Okay, here's what solved it for me. I noticed that "Generate Monitor-Size Previews" was unchecked in this Bridge update (even though settings were supposed to stay the same), so I checked it, then had to purge cache and rebuild previews.  They're back to their normal sharp selves.

In Bridge 2018, the preview image is soft, so I work with Bridge 2017 again.

I hope Adobe gives an update with a solution for this.

Hi,

Can you check the setting "Prefer Thumbnail Generation Over Preview Ggeneration" on your Bridge CC 2018, as shown in screenshot below.

If it is ON, try turning it OFF, restart Bridge and purge cache for desired image. Now check the preview quality. Please check and suggest.

Thanks,

Hi,

Apple has released a fix for this in Mac OSX 10.13.1 update. It is a fix for Nvidia GPU driver.

Please install the update, and Bridge CC 2018 should be able to use the GPU rendering. Please check and suggest.

Thanks,
