I have recently purchased Adobe CS4 but the screen (when making changes) does not refresh instantaneously. I have clicked on the option to refresh the document when open but it still doesnt do it...I have to click outside the pic to refresh.
It also seems sluggish.
I wonder if its my graphics card (ATI HD 3650) but its new if not the best.
thanks...i have a thread open on the adobe forum already. Was hoping someone here might have had some idea too.
Scratch disk is set up
open GL is checked (adobe recognises the graphics card)
I already read through the FAQs and they didnt help unfortunately. The plugins are visible, and I can load them, but when I click ok to apply the plug in effect, it doesnt show on the photo. However, it shows up on the history states as though it has been applied which is weird...
Specs on laptop are fine. I have 2.5ghz processor (core duo) and 4 gb ram with 640 gb hard drive.
h,mmm... it seems that if i go to "settings" in the nik software and apply the changes to the "Current layer" it works ok. However, if i want to apply the changes to a new layer then it doesnt work. The layer never appears.
Obviously then hard disks are not the problem. I was previously running CS4 on a similar spec machine without problem, but was running into slowdown problems when processing 180-200Mb files. With my updated PC 4core with 4Gb ram all is ok.
I have just downloaded the trial version of color efex 3, but will not have time to try it out untill this evening. Will check back this evening to see if you have it sorted
