  1. Excuse me, I'm asking about the behavior of the "setting itself". It can't be selected(Metal grayed out) in Affinity Photo, and can be selected and changed in Designer. Is this the behavior that Affinity aimed at?
  2. Are you asking me if I measured the benchmark? I do not know physically. Excuse me, I'm not asking for performance, I want to know if it is normal or abnormal that I can not select the Display setting on Photo. Photo is grayed out with Metal displayed. Designer can change the selection.
  3. When I checked the RAW engine on the main Mac, it was "Apple". When I changed to "Serif Labs", the lens profile was displayed and selectable. Thank you.
  4. It is not confirmation on main Mac, but has been checked and grayed out on another Mac.
  5. I don't have my main Mac(Mac Pro 2010) now, but I checked the RAW files taken with the same camera on another Mac(MBP 2012). At this time, when the RAW engine is Serif Labs, the lens profile name is displayed and I can select enable/disable. However, when the RAW engine is Apple, the lens is grayed out in the "Not supported" display. I didn't check the RAW engine on the main Mac. It may be the same as this.
  6. The video is displayed around 3:03, but I have grayed out that switch.
  7. I'm using Photo version 1.7, Desinger 1.7 for Mac. I had a question when looking at the GPU settings for these settings (performance). My graphic card is AMD Radeon RX580. This display state differs between Photo and Designer. Display is grayed out in Photo. Metal is displayed. Of course I can't choose. However, in the case of Designer, I can select Display and change to software or OpenCL. Which behavior is correct? --- Photo, Designer 1.7, macOS 10.14.5
  8. I read the following topic. I use the Mac version, but Affinity Photo uses the lens profile included with macOS. I'm using Panasonic DMC-GX7 and included in the lens profile list. When I look at the lens tab in Photo (RAW), it is displayed as a non-compatible lens. The same is true when I open a file taken with a Sony camera or Tamron lens. I think that the profile is applied but I am worried because I think distortion etc. are corrected when I look at the image. Is this normal behavior? Is it an error? --- Affinity Photo 1.7(stable), macOS 10.14.5
  9. In other words, since Skylum made a non-usual Photoshop plugin, is it impossible for Affinity to use it?
  10. This is a plain problem that has been occurring since the early days. STEP: Enter Quick mask mode Draw a mask area Move the cursor to the photo Cancel Quick mask mode Move the cursor Then, the place where the cursor was placed is apparently displayed as a selected area. In fact it is not a selection area. Only visible dotted line display. This has occurred since around Affinity Photo was released. I would like to improve this soon. --- macOS Mojave 10.14.2 | Affinity Photo 1.6.7 | Nvidia GTX680(Current)
  11. I use Luminar 3, but Photoshop plugins provided by Luminar(include other Skylum software) can't be used with Affinity Photo. Is this all I have to give up? I expect the affinity version DAM.
  12. I also have similar questions. I'm Mac Pro 2010, High Sierra. The graphics chip is nvidia GTX680. This chip is compatible with metal1. Other applications also recognize metal. I don't know whether "Metal1 correspondence" automatically evolves to "Metal2". This is an imagination. Or, because metal uses natural hardware acceleration, it is judged that there is no need to select it, and the hardware acceleration item is grayed out? But when I select OpenGL, it remains grayed out and don't change.
  13. I recently learned that DAM is being developed under the Affinity brand. I was originally an Aperture user, and I'm migrationing to Lightroom now. However, I'm still not familiar with LR. I heard this information at such time. It is good news for me and I want to expect new environment. There was information that development began in 2016, which stage is the development progressing now? Is there a screenshot image under development? Is Affinity DAM similar to Lightroom, or Aperture, or Luminar? Is such information still too early?
  14. It was a problem caused by language setting. The problem was solved if it was executed as the link below. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/41000-crash-when-using-a-non-localised-language/?p=205924
