AF Photo crashes when using NIK plug-ins. Problem shows when I am using and manipulating control points in the NIK plug-in. It is most common when using the Dfine 2 plug-in, but can happen with other plug-ins as well. The crash does not produce a debug file, nor is there any restore point. After multiple crashes, I've given up and reverted to using an old version of Photoshop to get the work done.

Crash occurs when Hardware Acceleration is either on or off. I've tried both. Plug-in image window functions in a more stable manner when hardware acceleration is off.

Hi Chris B,

Interesting. I double checked using a .jpeg vs .tif file -- just in case file size was a contributor. I got to 4 control points, then AF Photo crashed. JPEG image was 1.7 Mb (created on an 18-year old Pentax Optio S); TIF is 21 Mb scanned negative (created by SilverFast 8.8 and a Plustek 8200i film scanner). Size of file does not seem to be an influencer.

I also use the NIK plugins and once applied DFine2 to a 2 GiB photo on which I set 11 measuring points without AFPhoto crashing. 

What happens when you use the standalone NIK filters apps? Find them mostly on: C:\Program Files\DxO\Nik Collection

It is nice to be important, but it is important to be nice!
