PS 20 (2019)
While teaching this morning I used the lighting effects and all seemed just fine. Went to move the object and it turned black... so weird. Wondering if anyone can reproduce the problem...
Result after using Lighting effects
that is very weird, since the layer is not a smart object! this could be an issue with GPU
have you tried the same steps on a different document after restarting photoshop ?
I'm still in the middle of teaching my class and haven't had time to trouble shoot. Very odd behavior.
I can reproduce it on Windows 10, Photoshop CC2019, seems moving the layer triggers it
Weird bug... I'll report it.
Confirmed here also Melissa
Melissa, is that only on Windows or also on Mac?
I have had that issue on Windows ever since they put it in the CIB. It has worked fine on the Mac.
Here's what I do instead for that exercise:
I still do this with the If Action like they did a couple of versions back, so Portrait gets one color and Landscape gets the other.
Thank you for reporting this, I have filed a bug on this problem.
Trying to find out how to do that workaround, but doesn't seem to work. Photoshop is remembering my last four saved lighting effects (downward spotlights) from Friday (when it worked fine), which, to me is great, because I actually do want the same lighting, I just want to remove a couple of the downlights and move the remaining two.
I even tried the workaround just now (created a separate layer specifically for the workaround, since I won't be able to move any of my lights), but anytime I hit the "OK" button to apply it, PS crashes. I can't save the file after applying because I can't even apply it.
Will try resetting PS prefs next.
Although my suggestion for a workaround with Lighting Effects as a smart filter seemed to be an effective solution in most cases, I remarked meanwhile sometimes instability and weird behavior. Another issue is that Lightning Effects applied as smart filter is not compatible with Adobe Photoshop CC 2018. (when you reopens a file in CC 2018). So, Adobe, there is still a lot of work to be done!
I had the same problem which have been solved based on your suggestion.
In the first, I following your suggestion with Photoshop CC 2019 and I got a black image after reopen the file.
And then I turn back to the Photoshop CC 2018, it finally works.
Workaround does not work.
Did you ever find a resolution for this issue?
Hello, which exact Photoshop version are you using?
Daniel, I'm having the same problem with PS CC 20.0.1 on a brand new MBP with the Radeon Pro 555x graphics card. When can we expect this problem to be resolved? I tried the workaround and it did not help. I don't think anyone wants a workaround anyway; I would expect/hope that reported bugs would be addressed and resolved. Any new information regarding this bug?
I'm so glad it's not just me. The work around helps but this is really killing my work flow for certain things.
In the mean time I found a workaround. You can avoid this problem by applying Lighting Effects as a Smart Filter.
Thank you for this. I ran into the very same issue and the Smart Filter fix worked great.
Many thanks for this which was not a problem before the update. Lighting effects appear to work now without black squares and then crashes which were very frustrating.
Yes, this works. Thanks, thought it was my GPU at first. Still consider this a bug since Adobe has not posted any updated for PS CC 2019 help.
I tried that. Unfortunately it did not work for me.
None of the solutions here have worked for me either... did you ever find a work around?
