Pixel Bender problem in CS5.

Not sure if anyone here has had issues with Pixel Bender and CS5, but I'm unable to get the plugin (installed in both 32-bit and 64-bit PS CS5 via the Extension manager) getting the same response when attempting to run the filter (see attachment). Any pointers? Left a comment at Adobe's site (not the only one having an issue with PB with this same error). I am able to run the PB 2.5 toolkit with not problem, but would like to be able to run the PB plugin in CS5.

Re: Pixel Bender problem in CS5.

Yeah; I believe my video card is just too underpowered even though PB stand-a-lone works fine. The GPU option in CS5 is grayed out so that's go to be it. Guess my next desire will have to be a better video card. Any suggestions (preferrable under $120.00)?

Re: Pixel Bender problem in CS5.

Just as a side note, here is the error I get with Imageskil's Displacement filter in CS5.

When I try to run it PS sends out a message saying "not enough memory."
I have enough for everything else I run. What gives? Anyone know?

Re: Pixel Bender problem in CS5.

having the same problem, it's a great program when you can get it to work! We tried upgrading memory and updating the video driver. Computer is a Dell XPS 600

Re: Pixel Bender problem in CS5.

Hey Gunner; try the Pixel Bender stand-a-lone program. It works for me and is quite fast. Not sure what CS5's issue is. I did check another filter (RPM's Beautifier) with CS5 and it does work, so it's something related with an interaction of IS's Displacement filter and CS5 (this filter does work in Irfanview and GIMP; gave me a chuckle for some reason; lol). Hope you get Pixel Bender Stand-a-lone to work then you can rule out your hardware.

Re: Pixel Bender problem in CS5.

It's pretty 'crashy' on my new(ish) iMac as well. And I get the out of memory message sometimes...especially when I have a lot of programs running. Is PB a resource hog? FYI I run in 32 bit. Must be something in CS5 (I have the design standard version)

Lyle are you talking about the Pixel Bender Toolkit then? I can open it and load images into it. Now I guess I have to search out some filters to try out.

Thanks for the heads up.

Re: Pixel Bender problem in CS5.

I have tried using the Pixel Bender Tool Kit stand alone, and it works after a fashion. I don't really know what I am doing. One place I am reading mentions using it with an oil painting filter in Photoshop but that gets me the not enough memory message.

I cannot find an Oil Painting Filter for use in the stand alone Tool Kit. HELP!
