Lightroom Classic now hangs when creating panoramas. The issue started while on 8.3 but I have now updated to 8.4 and still have the same issue. LR Classic been reliable for months but I now can't create any panoramas within Lightroom. The same images will merge within Photoshop (if I merge the HDR's prior to Photoshop) or PTGUI, but I prefer to stay within lightroom as it creates an ARW file. Depending on the file set, the preview step can hang, or it  can hang during merge. HDR still merges ok.

Are you on macOS 10.14.6 by any chance? There seems to be an issue which is new to that OS update.

I am, and I did update macOS just prior to this attempted post processing session. Thank you for your post. I hadn't spotted that others are having issues with that new OS update...

Could you grab the System Info from Help menu > System Info please? I can't repro on 10.14.6, so there's an extra element we're missing. Maybe graphics card, amount of RAM...

I'll find the related post and merge this in a moment

Further info: The same issues occur on file sets from 2 different devices (a Sony Camera and a DJI Drone).
