Hoping for quick help.
I open a file.
Create a duplicate layer of what I want to work on.
Turn the layer into a smart object
Invoke Optics successfully.
Save the work (commit back to the file).
Invoke Optics a 2nd time.
BOOM! Optics launches and then immediately quits.
If I quit PS and relaunch attempting to edit the saved file, Optics may launch, or may not, haven’t figured out the patterns yet.
