Transform tool problems since latest update in Lightroom CC

Hi All, Is it just me or has anyone else had issues with the transform tools?  I take still images for real estate interiors and my workflow included applying tranform (typically auto or vertical) to the first image of several bracketed exposures and flash images and then syncing the transform across all images.  Since the latest update, images are no longer appear to be given the exact transform as the first image.  They each appear to be given a transform independent of eachother and so now, when sending them as layers in photoshop and auto aligning them, it is creating misalignment issues.  Help.

Hi, I'm having the EXACT same issue and I'm desperate for a solution to this! It's so frustrating. I'm on Catalina 10.15.3 and have LR Classic v9.2. Has anyone found a solution to this issue yet??

Glad to know I'm not the only one to notice. Thought I was going crazy.
Much easier to get the verticals done first in LR and then do more refined
adjustments in PS if needed. Hope more folks chime who are having the same
issue or that happen to know the fix.

I'm using Mojave 10.14.6 and Lightroom 9.2. On a related note, when I open images in Lightroom that I have previously edited, Lightroom appears to force an auto transform. If I go back one step in the history and then one forward, it goes away. This never happened before and just started in the last week so I assume it's related to a Lightroom update. It's very annoying. Please advise. Thanks.

Are you shooting with a tripod? Have you tried selecting the thumbnails in the filmstrip and then turning on auto-sync before applying the transform? Does it make any difference if you align in Photoshop first, and then do the transform as the final step?

Hi 99jon, I use a heavy tripod, it's definitely a software issue that
wasn't there before. But I tried autosync images before applying the
transform and that seems to do the trick. Thank you!

Transform works 2 different ways depending how you do it.  See here for a detailed explaination.

I don't know the exact cause or solution for this, but one of the changes mentioned in the release notes for Lightroom Classic 9.2 is “Expanding on our GPU support, we have added full GPU acceleration for Lens Correction and Transform adjustments.” That implies that the Transform code was changed in this version, possibly for the first time in a while. If those changes are somehow related to the new behavior you’re seeing, then the behavior might be different with GPU acceleration off vs on. Have you noticed if toggling GPU acceleration changes how the transformation is applied to the synced images?

Hi Conrad: Thanks for the reply. I disabled the GPU acceleration but the transform issues persisted. Do you know if Adobe is working on this? Thanks!

OK, then maybe the problem isn’t related to the new GPU acceleration. At least we ruled that out.

 

I don’t know if Adobe is working on it, but if none of the forum folks here can think of a solution, then it would be worth checking the official Lightroom Feedback site. First, check there to see if anyone else has reported it and if it’s already being voted up and discussed. If not, create a new problem report. I didn’t see this mentioned there when I took a quick look under the Problems heading.

 

The difference between this site and the Feedback site is that this forum is just discussions, while a post on that site can be voted on, tracked, and some get a status update from Adobe engineering staff. Many of the fixes listed for each release of Photoshop and Lightroom directly reference user reports on that site.

After further testing it appears the way transform is SUPPOSED to work according the following blog is no longer the case in Lr9.2
