  1. Thank you!!! Version 1.8 fixes the problem ... at least that is what my first test shows. I can switch to "Metal" and all is well.
  2. Doing all in software works for me, but certainly that is so lame that it hurts and you can have a cup of coffee while the filter computes.
  3. In my case, I cannot disable it, it is blurred out, it says there is no compatible GPU.
  4. When it crashes on a Mac it usually opens a windows with a lot of information about the crash. This includes not only a call stack, but a lot of other information that might b helpful to the developer. You can look at the rtf file in the first entry here which is my crash report.
  5. Oh, this happens with the frequency separation directly. However it is a 50MP image. But I will upload the macro as well ... I hope that worked, the file looks so awfully small.
  6. Supplemental: This happens with a filter radius >42. It seems to work for 42 and as soon as I use a radius 43 it crashes.
  7. AP crashes reproducibly when attempting a frequency separation. I usually do this from inside a macro that implements a widge filter. Interestingly the preview works, but as soon as I apply the macro it crashes. It also crashes when using the frequency separation directly. System info inside crash report: Crash report, Callstack etc is attached. CallStack_etc.rtf
  8. When I use layer blend modes, I can chose from a list of modes ... that is nothing new. Is there a description available, of what those modes actually do??? And I do not mean this mode lightens up etc. I want a more mathematical view like: For the sake of explaining lets assume we are talking about RGB colors, so rgba values. The function F_Mx is the function for blend mode Mx, it takes the pixels color values C_b(P)=(r_b, g_b, b_b, a_b) which is the color value of the pixel below the current layer and C_c(P)=(r_c, g_c, b_c, a_c) which is the color value of the pixel in the current layer, i.e. F_Mx(C_b(P),C_c(P)) = <insert formula here> This would help me very very very much, to wrap my mind around it, the blend mode names are in itself not explanatory enough (and yes, I am in the Asperger spectrum). Cheers, Frank
  9. Wait! The Update from 1.6 to 1.7 was available via the Apple App Store and - I assume this - is free?!?! I bought it yesterday via the Serif page, because I was notified that the update was available. I also purchased the update for Designer. Does that mean I just threw 90€ out of the window or was this legit. UPDATE: I reported this to Serif and they will refund my direct purchase. You guys are the best! Thank you very much!!!
  10. I kept the old plugins folder from Google that was in the Default Folder, but replaced the NIK Collection by the new one. Now the old plugins start the new tools, works fine on my Mac. The new tools did not seem to be able to be installed into a directory of my liking, but only as plugins for specific apps (none of which I have). Edit: No, sorry, you are completely correct. I have the same effect ... now looking into it.
  11. Is there any update on the status? I think the suggestion that GJN made is pretty good (adding a second ring that shows the maximum extension of the brush effect). Cheers Frank
  12. Hi all, I am really annoyed by this. I am using a standard blurry brush for painting in mask layers for instance, but when I try to apply the effects at the edges of areas this effect is really getting in my way. The attached image shows the effect of painting with a soft circular brush on a white layer. The brush itself is seen as the circle in the image which lies inside of the effect it produces. I cannot imagine that it is really intended to be this way. Is there any way of limiting the effect to the inside of the brush cursor, so that one can anticipate the actual brush effect? Cheers Frank
  13. Hi all, I have a licensed Affinity Photo on my MacBook Pro and I am planning on replacing the MBP by a newer one and maybe selling the older one. Is it enough to simply detach the whole MBP from my Apple-ID and thus void the license or do I have to take further actions in order to make the license from that MBP available again to me? Kind regards Frank
