    Thank you for the future TGA implementation, this is fantastic news. Thank you affinity team.

    TARGA file please?

    I didn't want to push the envelope on feature requests but I too agree, DDS would also be awesome to support but if I had to choose I'd still prefer TGA was added into Affinity Photo first. If its not too much trouble all Affinity team needs to do is implement an exporter for TGA and its the end of the story really. Other than the fighting going on between a few members in this thread (which I hope affinity team does not write this thread off due to that) I hope the points made by several members of why we want TGA support will suffice as good reason to have it added. If Affinity Team does not want TGA as a core exporter because it does not fit their vision maybe have it as a plugin. This way users could choose to install and anyone who sees TGA as 'bloat' won't see it unless they use the add-on. I'm pretty much looking for any alternative or compromise we can get to have TGA a reality in Affinity Photo.

    There are also cases I need TGA output becasue the game I am working on only has tools that allow TGA file conversion to the native game file texture. If Affinity Photo is able to allow TGA output with 24 and 32 bit +Alpha option it would make the workflow a lot easier for sure. I would prefer to not have to export from Affinity and use 3rd party programs to then convert a Tiff or PNG to TGA, especially if I am actively working on a file in affinity and need to output a TGA multiple times.

    I too would love to see TGA support come to Affinity Photo. The program is really great and my #1 feature after 1.7 would be to have TGA export support still. As others have mentioned I primarily use Affinity products for game development/creation and sometimes I need the direct TGA output. I am fine using 3rd party PNG to TGA converters but I do hope one day I won't need to anymore (for sake of workflow and speed) and Affinity can have the built in export function with alpha and 24/32 bit options.

    Affinity Photo for Windows - 1.7.0

    Congrats on the release, been looking forward to 1.7 for sure.
  6. 1. Setting when placing images in a document to scale them to the document size on import (would not change their aspect ratio though) 2. TGA import/export support 3. DDS import/export support

    Release date estimation

    Yeah I have Davinci Resolve and use it for video editing. Was not sure if it can do the same type of motion graphics effects that AE can do though. I know it has Fusion built in for compositing but didn't look at the full extent of effects it could do yet. If Affinity Photo had keyframes for all its filters/masking/effects and a way to output the workspace in motion graphics it would be a dream come true lol

    I'm not a fan of subscription based programs either. I found adobe replacements for almost all the programs I did use in their suite except for After Effects. I'm still searching for an alternative since that program is so unique there are no real competitors for exactly what it does sadly. Affinity Photo is pretty close with its cool non-destructive layers though, not having to setup smart objects first like in photoshop is very nice. If Affinity made an after effects 2D/3D compositing motion graphics program I'm sure they'd knock it out of the park. 'Affinity Effects' actually would sound like a cool program name.

    I did not realize the windows version did not have GPU acceleration yet. I've only had Affinity Photo for a few days but it is so smooth and runs very well I assumed it did already. 1.7 sounds to be really awesome. I too heard about Adobe buying Allegorithmic, I mostly use 3D Coat over substance but like their texture creation tools. Been trying to distance myself from Adobe products lately and when I heard the news it made me decide to get Affinity finally after thinking about it for a while.
