Camera Raw: “Save New Camera Raw Defaults” and “Reset Camera Raw Defaults”

What’s happened to “Save New Camera Raw Defaults” and “Reset Camera Raw Defaults”?
They have both disappeared from the bottom of the Camera Raw Settings menu button. Now the final entry is “Save Settings...”
Plus, none of the settings I had previously saved for my different cameras takes effect whether I try and open new or historic files.

I noticed that too.
I was going to explore CR tomorrow to see if the settings had been moved somewhere else in CR.

I am so dang ticked that they did not leave this as it was and just keep the simple menu item in the ACR drop down menu. Now you have to do one thing, to do another to get to the thing you want. REALLY stupid move. And the directions are so dang convoluted. Just keep it simple and stop fixing things (complicating things) that don't need fixing. Or at least make it as simple as the tool your breaking. This is really ticking me off.

Me too! I use auto ISO for events and I've made sharpness and noise presets for all the ISOs that get used.  Now I have to process each image separately. I really really really hate this!

You still cannot use a default that uses the version 2 engine.

really? You just do it once, following this excellent article...I really do not see a big deal once you created the preset you assign it either to the camera or to all...it took me 1 minute to set up...

i'm editing series of raws i took at events, where the light changes every few minutes (so i need new white balance, noise reduction, exposure adjustment ). 8 raws with lights 1, 5 raws with lights 2  and so on. With every light change i adjusted the settings, hit "save as new raw defaults", used it for the next 5-8 images, adjusted the settings and saved them and so on...

I photograph stage productions where I take literally hundreds of pics on auto ISO and depended on ISO specific sharpness, noise reuductionmand other settings to kick in when opening multiple images in ACR.
Thank goodness I've managed to revert to ACR 11.4.1 using a link from higher up in this thread and I am hugely relieved!!

Actually, with the new ISO preset, it's more convenient. You only need to set a few lines in the preset to cover the entire range of your camera as the preset dynamically calculates a NR level. For example, I've got mine set as:

      crs:ISO="100"
      crs:LuminanceSmoothing="0"/>
     <rdf:li
      crs:ISO="400"
      crs:LuminanceSmoothing="10"/>
     <rdf:li
      crs:ISO="1600"
      crs:LuminanceSmoothing="20"/>
     <rdf:li
      crs:ISO="6400"
      crs:LuminanceSmoothing="35"/>

I appreciate your info, thanks.
I think we don't all work the same way.
I don't use only the luminance smoothing level, but also other NR parameters, and also I modify the sharpness and its parameters for different subjects and scenarios, even if the iso is the same. So Stage lighting changing colour from one scene to the next, with lots of faces gets different treatment from landscapes. Colour balance, clarity, texture etc settings will change.
As I start processing a batch I can simply click one button to save all settings for that batch.
