Live Filters Wreak Havoc with 1.10.0 update

Recommended Posts

One of the changes with 1.10.0 is that I can't use any of my old Photo files anymore.

BTW this gets even worse when you bring files with multiple artboards that have live filters in. This is specific to Photo. The documents work in Designer.

Workaround: I've created a document with all of the filters in their default state and bring that into Designer to copy and paste from so I can work.

Hi Chris,

I made you a simple file in Designer, opened it in Photo and already saw the first issues from the Layer Effects, then added a Live Filter and broke the rest.

To test it in Photo you can just turn off the Live Filter in the First Artboard. That'll show the FX issue by itself.


FYI. I'm working in Publisher's Photo Persona now. As annoying as it is to set up everything there again, at least I can work.

Here you go:

Same setup as I have. I get a mess if I have the Enable Metal compute acceleration checked. If I don't have it checked all is fine.

Note that that is for Photo 1.10.0 in Designer and Publisher (both versions are 1.10.0) I can have the preference checked and all is fine there. Even in Publisher's Photo Studio Link persona all is fine.

From Photo this works fine for me.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

Trying the test file on my Mojave system and all looks well to me.
Screenshot from Photo but it looks just the same in Publisher and Designer. All three of my apps have the same performance settings.
