Re: cc 2015 record action bug?

Hi Mantra
I suggest you go into the Action and expand each command associated with setting up the Selective Color Adjustment Layers. Most likely you will not see the command to set the adjustment Layer to Absolute.

From my understanding of how it is being recorded is that it incrementally records any buttons that are changed or sliders that are moved.

That means if the Absolute Radio button was initially set to relative, and then clicked to me absolute, it is not recorded and what ends up being used in the Action is the last setting of Selective Color whether it was with an Adjustment Layer or from the Image > Adjustments > Selective Color command.

If I am right in my understanding, that is a crazy way to Adobe to record the action in my opinion.

The way to override it not being recorded, is to make sure that while recording either:
a) If relative is set, then click on absolute (this will record an action)
b) if already set to absolute, the click on relative followed by clicking on absolute. This will force the action to record the Action correctly.

Hope this helps some.

Re: cc 2015 record action bug?

Hi Mantra

You're welcome.

Yes I did record an Action with Photoshop CC 2015.0.1 and I am using a Mac with OSX 10.10.5

To answer your question more specifically on what to do, it would be best to see you Action file directly. I am assuming that you have recorded the Action in PS CC 2015 and when played in PS CC 2015 it creates Selective Adjustment Layers set to relative when you were expecting them all to be set to Absolute.

I suggest you Save the Action Set in which the Action is located. It will be save as an ATN file at the location of your choice. The Zip the file in Windows 10 (instructions here: http://www.laptopmag.com/articles/ho...les-windows-10 )

You can attach the zip file to a foum posting and I will then be able to download that file and load it into my Actions in PS CC 2015.

I believe this will be the most efficient way to proceed for the next steps.

PS - If you have not saved an Action before, this link will help with that step as well: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/us...g-actions.html

Hi Mantra
No need to excuse yourself for English as it would be better than any second language from me (I use google translate)
Chiedo scusa per la mia povera italiana.

As I suspected there is not steps in the Action which sets it to "absolute". I just went to each step and added that action step and saved and zipped the file and attached it below. Please unzip, load these action into your Photoshop and see if this works for you.

Hope that works for you.

Hi John
it works Perfectly !
maybe i understood cc 2015 action recorder , after creating all the layer , i should re-open and re-set to absolute ...

but it weird that cc 2015.1.1 under windows doesn't record the color selective settings included absolute or relative , hope under Mac with OSX 10.10.5 it's different



John , may i ask a question ? it's offtopic , but is there a way to convert an action to script (that works with 2015 )? http://www.tonton-pixel.com/blog/scr...-actions-file/ but seems to work better under osx


thanks again !
1000 times better then adobe support

Re: cc 2015 record action bug?

Hi Mantra
It is no better on the Mac system for recording Selective Color Adjustment Layer. My best guess is that to make actions run faster, they decided only to record the actual changes made on an adjustment Layer and not the status of every setting. Unfortunately, when using an Action, it starts as default in relative mode and must be changed to absolute. When doing it manually, the absolute button can remain checked when creating subsequent Selective Color Adjustment Layers. I do consider that a bug or at the very least poor software practice by Adobe. I think it is the same issue on prior versions too.

Glad that the new action worked for you
