I just upgraded to the latest version of Photoshop and my animated zoom is gone. It's selected in the pref pane, but doesn't work.
What are your GPU settings in Preferences > Performance Graphics Processor (including the advanced settings and drawing mode)
You are awesome, davescm! I just selected "Use graphics processor" which I didn't see earlier. Everything works well now
You're welcome, glad to help
Had the same issue. First it worked. But with the new update, it doesnt anymore.
Why are every update designed to cancel animated zoom?
Same here. Graphics settings on but zooming in/out looks like when graphics drivers aren't working. It snaps straight to next increment and not smoothly.
I had the same issue. This happened after updgrading to Catalina on the Mac. I toggled "Animated Zoom" and "Zoom with Scroll" a few times and that fixed the problem.
Comigo para de funcionar quando trabalho com artboards, só consigo usar novamente quando fecho e abro novamente o photoshop
Chespira is saying that if you are working with artboards, it will screw the animated zoom. Restarting Photoshop (and avoiding artboards) will fix it. This was indeed my case. Such an annoying issue, thanks for the tip!
I had the same issue. No scrubby or smooth zooming. In Preferences > Performance > Use Graphics Processor was checked.
There is another option. Go to the Zoom tool and check it's options (in the toolbaar). Check Scrubby zoom. Now zoom should be smooth.
