Control points not working in Silver Efex

Hi there,

I just downloaded Nik 3. It seems to be working fine on my Mac (Catalina 10.15.7) and the updated Photoshop 2021. The only issue is that I cannot use control points in Silver Efex. Control points work fine using the same photo in other filters, just not there. Any guidance would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Dear @23grover,

welcome to the forum and happy developing :smiley:

I can only say that control points in Silver Efex Pro NIK3 are working fine at windows system.
I also just started with NIK3 on DXO PL4

Maybe it’s one of the often discussed MAC-WIN differences.

So we have to wait for the Mac bros :sweat_smile: to solve the problem.

best regards


MacOS 11.2.3, Mac mini (M1, 2020), trial version of Silver Efex Pro 3

Control points worked once then quit. I wonder how the upgrade got past quality control.

Mac Mini M1/Big Sur 11.4; Silver effects control points not working here too (Nik 4). I use as a stand alone applications and with Photolab 3. Need urgent solution to keep working.

@Atha, check here Nik Collection 4 - #27 by Wolfgang

and btw, Nik4 needs PL4.3 to work with

I’m having problems with control points in Silver Efex Pro 3 - they just don’t work properly.

There are other issues too - all to do with an unresponsive UI.

I’m using a Mac with Mojave 10.14.6

Seems that something when terribly wrong with this development.

I’d like to see a fix ASAP - I’ve currently downgraded to the previous version.
