I'm getting the same. Restarting, shutting down, clearing memory.

It's also extremely slow on my end. Windows 10, NVIDIA(latest drivers), 32GB Ram.

This happens for me anytime I initiate Select and Mask on a selection. If I turn that selection into an alpha mask it works as normal on the mask.
 
Another error that has popped up for this same issue is:

"Could not load keyboard shortcuts because of a program error"


Can someone from Adobe please respond?

There is another thread where users are suggesting that changing to 8 bit is a workaround, but I haven't heard back yet about their version.

I can confirm 8bit works as expected on my system, unfortunately I don't have the option to work in 8bit for my projects so I'll have to do it the slow way until a fix is released.

Hi Peter,

Do you have a channel selected when you attempt the Select and Mask?

Is this with CC2018? What OS are you using?

Uncheck "remember settings" in select and mask dialogue. This worked for me. You can recheck it later

You were able to get smoothing to remain disabled on a new launch this way?

No, this only solved the "select and mask" error. Smoothing still turns itself back on upon restart (however it remains at 0% for me)

Okay thanks. We still need a file to test that is encountering the problem. Any of your files that are causing the program error would be great to have.

Thanks,
Hannah
