I recently upgraded Nik Collection to the latest version which upgraded some of the applications within the program.  Silver Efex Pro 2 upgraded to Silver Efex Pro 3.  When I run my Photoshop actions that I created that were built on Silver Efex Pro 2, they break. For example.  I have an action that converts a photography from color to black & white using Silver Efex Pro 2.

When the action runs and gets to the part that is for Silver Efex 2, it halts stating that 'The Command "Silver Efex Pro 2" is not currently available."  Is it possible to view the commands contained within the part of my action that launches Silver Efex Pro 2?

I need to recreate the actions that have broken, but I cannot recall the exact settings invoked within the action to reproduce them.

 

I am using a MacBook Pro running macOS Big Sur version 11.3.1.  I am using Adobe Photoshop CC 22.4.2 Release.  I am using Nik Collecgtion by DxO version 4.1.1.

You can turn down the arrow to see the settings of the step.

 

Check the state of the document, is the color mode, bit depth appropriate to work with that plug-in? Is the correct layer selected?

Hi, I'd duplicate the action, delete the step (drag to trash) and re-record it with the plugin you want (record button)

You can also double-click on a step to change the recorded settings, but I doubt it would work for a different plugin.
