Generate Normal Map still not working in PS 21.2.1

"Generate Normal Map" still isn't working. Nothing happens when I select it, other than the image reloading. 

 

I know others had this problem, and resetting PS's preferences seemed to work for them. It only works for me if I reset the preferences EVERY TIME I reopen Photoshop, and even then I only get one map per session to work. 

 

This is a huge wrench in my workflow and I wish Adobe would address it, as it's happening to a lot of people, across various versions.

Generate normal map uses 3D functionality which is being dropped from Photoshop.

So I just used it like 2 weeks ago, then the app updated now its broke. How do I go back to the version it actually worked. I am very aware that the obj 3d was removed but had no issues with generating 3d map. I get errors about my video card not being supported, and or enable into preferences something that is in fact enabled.

As I stated in my answer yesterday, 3D is removed in the latest version, as announced by Adobe some time ago. If you need 3D functionality Adobe recommends v22.2

3D was removed in the latest version of Photoshop. If you need this functionality your best bet is to roll back to previous version.

No, not the "previous version", as it won't help.

 

Adobe recommends using Photoshop version 22.2 (from February 2021) if you need more stable performance with Photoshop’s 3D features. See this page for details:
