Simple focus stack on a seashell. 20 exposuers (NEF files) from D850 & 105 AF-S macro lens
Photoshop crashes EVERY SINGLE time on the auto blend. Just stops responding even if I leave it for hours. Have tried with a minimal focus stack of 2 exposures. Still crashes. Have tried all the usual performance tweaks. Even turned off GPU support to eliminate GPU as reason for crash. Don't believe it is memory related as Photoshop is using only 6GB of RAM when it crashes.
Have run out of ideas. Problem seems insoluble.
I see LOTS of similar issues by Googling. I see NO SOLUTIONS at all 😞
Has anyone out there solved a problem like this?
Would I be better off buying a different tool for stack merging?
