Topaz Ai crashing after installing update 1.5.3

[Please describe your issue here. Try to include logs (Help → Logging) and add screenshots if necessary.]

Steps to reproduce issue:

  1. Step 1 selecting photos
  2. Step 2 Topaz doing its face selection etc
  3. Step 3 Topaz crashes and completely goes out of program
    Version 1.5.3 on windows

Topaz Photo AI [v1.x.x] on [Windows/Mac]

Please open Topaz Photo AI, go to the menu bar on the top and click the Help > Open Log Folder menu option. Attach the logs files that you can see in the window that opens.

I should be able to determine what is happening and send next steps with this information.

I have the same problem, but it seems it occurs with CR3 files. My camera is Canon R 5.

Thanks for sending the logs. How often is the crash happening?

I can see that there is a CPU crash in the logs.

I’d like to check if the crash is the same.

Please get Topaz Photo AI to crash 2 times. Then open Topaz Photo AI, go to the menu bar on the top and click the Help > Open Log Folder menu option. Attach the logs files that you can see in the window that opens.

It looks like your system memory is below the minimum requirements of 12GB.

When you import an image to Topaz Photo AI the application will use system memory to open and display the image.

For this computer, I would recommend the following:

  1. Increase system memory to 12GB or more.
  2. Close all other applications on your computer. Run Topaz Photo AI only to prevent it from crashing.

Hello Lingyu,
Thanks for your answer.
8gb is the size of the system memory, so I am going to increase it, probably more than 12 GB.
2X8 GB if possible on my PC.
I will let you know in few days if this fix my problem.
Best regards.

v1.5.3 and now v1.54 are crashing randomly during the processing. My computer is Win10, On another computer Win11 this is not happening.

I’ll try and upload the logs

Hi Lingyu,
There is 16 GB of RAM now but it does not fix my problem.
In addition I can tell you that Topaz Ai crash is when the message of lens correction is running and on the screan.
Hope this will help you.
On more thing, now it’s impossible to use the product as the crash is each time I try to download a picture and Topaz Ai is running alone at this time.

Below ( log files).

Hi Lingyu,

Good news !
I can’t explain why and what in my has changed in termof software. as I said I installed additionnal 8GB of RAM. The 6 or 7 first time I tried to run Topaz Ai it crahsed (See logs above I sent you).
Then after a Wifi issue, I restarted my PC and non Topaz Ai works very well, is faster and no crash after more than10 pictures downloaded.
Can we say that my pb is fixed ? I will let you know in the next following days.
It’s like Topaz Ai had to spend a long time to be correctly initialized completely with 16 GB of RAM.
Only you know if this makes sens to say that. If it’s rediculous, it will not kill me :slight_smile:

It’s been crashing on me constantly, both 1.5.3 and 1.5.4, never used to crash on countless version before that. Now to process a lot of photos I have to reopen it like 10 times and find what was not processed and pass it back in. I’ve found at least one photo that it used to proces that it consistently crashes on now. Otherwise the crashes are random - might happen immediately, might happen after a dozen photos processed. Might be 20.

Always the same cause. An invalid memory access by imageproc.dll:
