This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Photoshop: Enable Curves other Adjustments for 32bits/channels image

Why in Photoshop the 32 bits/channel has so many limitations ?

its been years and years why this hasn't been addressed  yet

like all these important adjustments grayed out this images also blending modes etc

 

while a program like after effects which is also from the adobe family works like charm

Copying from a comment i left in another thread:

I agree. After Effects seems to handle 32bit files a bit better. It also seems to have more options for adjustments such as Curves layers. OCIO transform layers can be added/used in 32bit also, allowing for ACES workflows to be used. I think unbounded ICC profiles may allow this as well, however Photoshop doesn't have the option for OCIO adjustment layers or Color Space Transform layers. 

I know Lars Borg from Adobe was working on something with this. https://groups.google.com/d/msg/ocio-dev/AnmLVkv1Tcg/RgEDd9oIBgAJ

Plus better compatibility with Adobe products was mentioned in the ACES: Retrospective and Enhancements. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/314385826_ACES_-_Retrospective_and_Enhancements_-_2017

I think maybe a workspace/option/configuration could be added for Photoshop that works better for people that work in VFX, 3D, Matte Painting, Compositing, Cinema, etc. Have it work in 32bit bit, add OCIO, bypass/handle color management manually, Logarithmic Gamma working space and tools for working with cinema footage, film scans, etc.  ACES integration. Would love an upgrade to the "Blend if" sliders. Maybe replace it with an HSL qualifier like Davinci Resolve.
