Bridge CS5 & CS6 rebuild previews repeatedly in folders with ACR>Lens Corrections>Manual>Transform settings

As the title says, I have observed this behavior in Bridge CS5.1 and in the demo of CS6. There is lengthy description with System Info at this thread:
http://forums.adobe.com/message/44313...

I started trying out Photoshop CS6 last night with a copy of some of my RAW image folders. One of these folders has extensive use of Lens Corrections>Manual>Transform >Vertical corrections. Overnight, I built the cache for this folder and some other recent ones which do not use the Transform settings using Bridge>Tools>Cache>Build and Export (w/100% previews.)

This morning, as soon as I brought Bridge to the front, it started regenerating previews of all sizes for as many as 113 images out of 559. I went to the parent folder and ran Bridge>Tools>Cache>Build and Export again. When it finished, Bridge started rebuilding 113 thumbnails again, plus almost 100 full size previews.

As mentioned in the link above, when I used a Transform adjustment on one file in another folder, Bridge repeatedly rebuilt all previews for about 3 images. Setting Transform back to default did not stop this behavior. It stopped rebuilding at the slightest touch (e.g. select/preview an image) when I moved the XMP for that one image out of the folder and flushed the cache for that image.

I have seen references in the Adobe Forums (example: Windows Read Only forum) to others experiencing something like this, but not with the specific association with Transform settings.

Has anyone else run into this? Links to discussions would be greatly appreciated if anyone knows of such.

Thanks!

Yes, have been experiencing the same problems!
Bridge crashing, rebuilding thumbnails and previews, etc.
Also mourn the loss of the manual fringing controls as nothing seems to work to get rid of purple/cyan fringing from some of my lesser lenses, all the f2.8 lenses seem to be fine.

BTW, I have the following
Quad i7 2600k processor
16GB Dram
128 GB SSD as "C" drive
64 GB SSD as scratch drive
2 x 1TB hard drives for images
GeForce 550 1GB graphics card
Windows 7
Operates at Window experience level 7.4

As yet have not upgraded my iMAC (dual i3 proc) to ACR rev 6.7, although have experience Bridge crashes on occasions.

Hi,

I'm trying to reproduce your issue but unfortunately I did not reproduce it till now. Can you please help?

As you have mentioned 'when I used a Transform adjustment on one file in another folder, Bridge repeatedly rebuilt all previews for about 3 images', can you please help to tell me whether this issue can be reproduced by:
1. create a new folder and copy 3~4 images of the folder you mentioned to this new folder
2. then reproduce this issue with the new folder.

Thanks!

Best Regards,
Chun Xia

Hello Chun Xia,

I am working on setting up the situation you describe. I will post again when I have some results.

Thanks for responding.

Hello again,

I have attempted your suggestions , but I sort of have to let things rest on this front for a bit and take care of other things. At this point, there is only one folder affected. This is annoying because it steals CPU cycles, but only in that folder and in a duplicate of it which I made to experiment with. Trouble is, at the moment, that I cannot make other folders act the same way. I have considered size of the folder (559 images) as a possible contributing factor, and split my test folder into two. That did not change the behavior on either part.

At one point another folder started acting up, and I made it stop by removing the ACR Transform settings on the one file which had them. I have now gone back to that folder and put the settings back in, and it behaves normally. I am at a loss as to providing what might be reproduceable examples for others to check out.

I greatly appreciate that thought and attention you have put into this conundrum. I will return to this issue when I get some other things out of the way, and post any items which seem significant. The single greatest accomplishment would be posting files which others could experiment with, but right now my only instances of the problem take place in folders containing from 5 to 12 GB. This poses obvious problems!

Thanks again! I will get back to this issue when I can, and post uploaded files if I think they might give the chance of reproducing the problem.

Best Regards,
Kieren

I am having the same problem on both PC and Mac platforms. Very annoying to say the least.

The most difficult aspect of it for me is that it is not consistent. It is hard to pin down. I still cannot provide examples in which others might be able to replicate the behavior.

It will do this at least onece a week on both the PC and Mac platforms. There does not seem to be any common "trigger" which causes this...it just happens.

I recently upgraded to CS6 and I noticed that same problem to. Bridge just keeps regenerating the previews.
Every time a change to a different folder it regenerates the previews regardless of having settings applied/not applied to images. This happens in all folders, unlike Kieren13 for me it is consistent.
Even worst, every time I move the scroll bar, Br regenerates the previews.
It gives me a lot of down time, having to wait for Br.

Fortunately or unfortunately, (take your pick), this issue has become moot for me. I am using CS6 for new work, though I still have the CS5 work on a separate drive. The folder in question no longer regenerates spontaneously, at least in CS6. Since it only consistently happened in one folder in CS5 I haven't really pursued this any further.
