Lightroom Classic: (Mac) Crashes - GPU
I have a iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015), 3.2 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5, 24 GB 1867 MHz DDR3, with AMD Radeon R9 M380 2 GB. After I installed the latest version of LRC, my computer would freeze each time I tried to make any adjustment on a photo in the Develop module. This issue would stop when I set the graphics processor to OFF in LRC.
I spent over an hour with Adobe support and they tried many things including installing and re-installing the app and starting a new catalog, and importing the contents of the old catalog to the new one. The problem persisted. In the end, the support person installed the previous version of LRC (back to 10.0) and all is fine now, with the graphics processor set again to Auto.
I hope this issue can be addressed with a fix. I don't think it is realistic for Adobe to expect that consumers need to live with this type of compatibility issues, especially when the video card is specified as compatible by Adobe.
Any feedback on this issue is welcome.
