P: Merge to HDR and Panorama doesn't work

On a regular basis, I merge 5 bracketed shots from my drone.  In the older LR, this operation took about 1 minute or less.  I could "batch" 5 operations at a time and have them all done in about 3 minutes or less.

 

With the newer, faster, more awesome (and likely soon-to-be-deprecated) LR, it simply won't do anything.  I was lucky and had one HDR to work, but I've tried countless others (one for nearly two hours) and nothing happens.  The progress bar makes no progress.

 

I'm really worried that this important feature is simply victim of a bug.

 

Anyone else having issues?  Adobe, what's up with this??

 



I'm using a medium-powered PC that has never had problems with merge before.

Hi Michael,

Can you retry photo merge operations after removing the config flag and check if your issue gets resolved?

Dear Satish,

thanks for your answer. As written by me below the supplemental update did indeed solve my problem. To test it I now also removed the 'Features.disableGlobalTaskManager = true' in the config.lua. Merging the panorama also works when this option is removed. 
'Thanks for asking!
All the best
Edgar

And you revisited your MAC system information, and checked for an additional update? This one the Supplemental update?

I click Photo>photo merge>HDR, and nothing at all happens. I don’t even get a preview/dialogue window! New MacBook Pro with the latest version of LR.
