Problem when loading/rendering an existing Smart object layer within a photo. 5 out of 10 photoshop freezes. What I have is 1 smart object with Adobe raw layer and 6 several Nik google filters like color efex, sharpening pro, define, viveza, analog pro, silver efex pro and loaded this as a layer If I want to open the smart layer it loads very slow and it photoshop freezes quite often. I have the newest Mac book pro with 500GB SSD, 16GB, i7 processor with the newest MAC OS.

Have you tried disabling all your third party plugins?

Does it freeze/hang if you load a smart object layer that doesn't have a half dozen filters applied to it?

What version of Photoshop are you using?
What OS version?
