HDR Merging 2 raw Sony A7RIV files in latest LR Classic with any ghosting option selected  causes a LR crash. It will usually finish the merge but as it brings back up the library grid the program crashes. Tried doing the same in photoshop using bridge to merge the two files in ACR and get the same crash. It works in both LR and Photoshop/Bridge if NO GHOSTING options are selected.

Matt,

We'd like to try to reproduce your crash. Would you be willing to share two files that exhibit the problem?

Certainly, see the attached link. BTW: I duplicated the issues this morning on a different photographic scene. Tested with LR using the APS-C mode on the A7RIV which only produces 27MB files (files #43 & 44).  The Merge with medium ghosting worked just fine but the larger files (#41 & 42) caused the crash.  So it appears the issue centers around the larger 62Mb files. Also, I'm on MacOS 10.14.6 Mojave using a MBPro i7, 3.3 Ghz, 16 Gb memory. Using latest LR Classic 9.1. Here is a dropbox link for the 4 files.

I can duplicate your crash in Camera Raw and Lightroom Classic. I will log a bug for this with the Camera Raw team. Thanks for the files.
