Will CS6 permit use of the Render Lighting filter without switching to 32 bit mode or changing an image from 16-bit to 6-bit?

The Lighting Effects filter works on 8bit and 16bit images in Photoshop CS6. It does not work on 32bit images.

The filter does work in both the 32bit and 64bit application on Mac and Windows.
