I've been seeing this alot and remember seeing it before. I am in GRID in LR and select 20 raw files. I choose CMD+E to send them to Photoshop. Photoshop opens and the files start loading into the workspace. I go to do a Photomerge and I see the list of images in the workspace are incomplete. It's random. I checked the bottom of the list to see if they were sorted to the end. No, it's all sorted A->Z. This example was missing 4 selected images.

Hi sean,

I am not able to see this issue at our end. Can you please send us a video of this issue? Which version of Lightroom Classic you are using? what is your PS version? Mac? Please provide OS version as well.

Thanks,
Ruby

I'm using LR Classic (8.0) updated 10/17/18. I'm using PS 2019 CC udpated 10/17/18. This is a continual issue across several installs across several machines. I choose 30 photos in the grid in LR, export them to LR and it leaves out random shots. My goal is to photomerge in PS because LR totally chokes and gives up. it's random, too. I can repeat the export to PS and different images are omitted from the export. Race condition?

OS 10.13.6
64GB DDR4 3000
6-core 8700K cpu
1070TI GPU

Files are Nikon D850 raw NEF (~50MB each, 46MP)

AND--- Heads up, the new 2019 version of Photoshop CC does not blend panos anymore.

I just performed a set of tests on my system. Note that all image counts up to 55 images worked as expected. However: 

Mac 10.13.6 
Lr Classic CC 8.0
PS 20 (2019)
60 Raw files Canon 5D Mark IV
Edit In Photoshop

1st Attempt - received 56 files in Photoshop
2nd Attempt (same file set) - received 58 files in Photoshop 

I will file a bug on this. Just speculating but available system resources may come into play here as the threshold is different for different users.

Can you also file a bug that PS CC 2019 doesn't blend panos anymore? Seems like I hit a limit and the pano is created but nothing is masked nor blended. Same images, same options but 2019 doesn't blend. 2018 does.

And yet another resource wall or something.... When using Transform>Warp, PS 2018 and 2019 randomly give up showing a preview. I can be adjusting the control points and the preview adjust and then, all of a sudden, PS gives up. It reverts to the original view and no longer previews the warp.

Finally, why is PTGUI 100x faster and more accurate than PS? It can take an hour to stitch a 30-shot pano in PS, but 1 minute in PTGUI leveraging my 1070TI and OpenCL. Hasn't PS been around since 1987 or something? ..... 30 years

Definitely has to be resources. I do have 64GB ram and a 1TB scratch drive that’s a NVME SSD CAPABLE OF 3GB/s

I also see this with 30+ Image export not 50+
