At first I was thrilled with the new update. So many good things.
Big but… I am having to restart Aperture often after editing a photo. The images appear as garbled lines and bits & pieces. It seems to be happening more & more often.
Every time I use HDR2Pro to edit it happens and their support replied that it is a problem with Aperture and something about the graphic card processing.
All of my updates are up to date. Any suggestions?

Karen, you are scaring me! I just purchased the HDR2 Pro Upgrade this evening and was planning on upgrading to Mountain Lion and Aperture 3.3.1 tomorrow.
What Mac are you using? Sorry I can’t help you with your problem, I’m just not Techie. I’m sure someone here will be able to give you some advice.

I'd much rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

Karen, I posted here and also at Apple Communities regarding a different issue, where Aperture, after updating it to 3.3 and 3.3.1 kept generating Previews after each relaunch. As part of the solution, I deleted all Previews and Thumbnails. When the Thumbnails were regenerated, many of them look like what you describe (you can see it here What solved it for me was just to open the photo and the thumbnail would regenerate correctly. I only had to do it once. I do not know enough about your issue but thought this might help.
