I just can't get photoshop to render grids in vanishing point filter to a layer in photoshop. It used to work fine earlier. Tried loading photoshop without third party add ons. Tried it with 8 bit file as well as 16 bit but no results. 

I am using Mac OS Sierra on a late 2015 iMac with a AMD Radeon R9 M390 2048 MB graphics card and PS 2017 cc

My system is different from yours. It may be system specific? I'm running El Capitan and have an Nvidea card with 2GB. Also in 2017 release, and so long as I select the grid with the Move tool, choose Render Grids, and then click okay in VP to run the filter, I get a grid on whatever layer I have targeted in PS proper. I have a lot of 3rd party add-ons loaded. Just now ran it on an 8bit file, then repeated it on a 16 bit file, and it ran.

So there's something else going on. I'm afraid I don't know what to guess since you said it used to work, and I'm assuming your graphics card hasn't changed and is fully supported. So the usual suspects are corrupted Preferences and/or a corrupted install. Have you tried saving your presets/actions, and then uninstalling letting the CC app remove prefs, and reinstalling? Usually this is a long shot, but sometimes it makes the difference.

Otherwise, Adobe staff should be back next week, if none are hanging around for the heck of it now while on vacation.

Thanks Cristen. The exact same work flow gets me no results. Guess I will wait and see what feedback Adobe gives. Have a great weekend

I also have this problem, even in Photoshop CC 2019, and though this is not a complete answer, maybe it will help someone find the solution.

As long as the grid is blue, it will work:

If the grid is yellow (or red), it will not work:

You can drag the corners of an existing grid to get the grid to turn blue (and therefore work), but sometimes this results in a grid that doesn't actually represent the proper vanishing point in the photo.
