    I recently downloaded SEP2 trial version. Everything seemed ok the first session. But the last 2 times I have used it I have been getting strange patches. I have been using it through Photoshop cs5, on a windows 7 64 bit system. Everything looks fine in SEP until I press the button to save. when it opens in Photoshop these patches appear. The area appeared completely smooth until it appeared in PS.Any advice greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    You can try disabling GPU support within the Silver Efex settings. I had some strange artifacts when I upgraded my video card... once the GPU support (acceleration) was disabled, they went away.

    Hey Thanks a lot Kyle. I followed your advice and it worked, just a bit more lag between moving the sliders and seeing what is happening.

    Good stuff, glad it worked!

    Hopefully, future updates from Nik will resolve, so we can go back to using our fast GPUs. :2thumbs:
