Got prompted that there was an update available for Studio, so quit then created a system snapshot. Glad I did.
Ran the update and it quit part way through and said that I needed to download the full installer from a link in the error dialog… Went ahead and downloaded and did the install.
All seemed fine, loaded one of my looks, which had an AI Clear layer and looked like there was a very big improvement in speed, until I discovered that AI Clear was doing nothing except make the image brighter. None of the adjustments within the AI Clear panel did anything at all!!! No wonder the processing was so fast, since AI Clear was doing nothing!
Rebooted into recovery and restored the snapshot I made of the system and am now back at 2.1.1 where everything was working!
Anyone else having issues with 2.2? I am starting to get very disappointed in the folks at Topaz. They had rock solid plugin products and then decided to go the “Studio” route and ever since it’s been an adventure, and not always good one.
