    KC Honie got a reaction from Bigassdroids in Affinity Lightroom   
    The best of all worlds would be if Serif acquired Aperture from Apple, updated the product to be consistent with the other Affinity apps, rebranded it to their own DAM/Raw Editor and unleashed a world of hurt on Adobe... :)

    KC Honie reacted to nwhit in Affinity Publisher - Sneak Preview   
    Suffice it to say that InDesign is and has been the predominant software for the creation of professionally printed documents and their associated PDF derivatives for various uses. Ever since PageMaker and then InDesign, this is the most-used "creation" software by professional shops. While there are many others (and I've used and taught most of the biggies over the years like Quark and FrameMaker), professional media creation shops still mostly use InDesign to create documents for offset printing and pdf versions of that print job; and print shops will most often have it as well if it is desired to have them open and adjust a file.
     
    Therefore, as per my earlier post, we as a creative and media production shop have thousands of client documents/files already created in InDesign. It would be essential to be able to open and convert them in the new A-Pub. If that cannot be done, about 60-80% of our client work could not be done in the new app since the clients are not going to be willing to have us recreate existing documents (but needing updates, etc.) at their expense. And we sure aren't going to do it at our expense! 
     
    As I said in my earlier post, for Affinity it's a matter of a slow rollout versus a faster rollout. If media production shops cannot use it to integrate into their InDesign workflow for clients until much later versions, then it will only be used for a "new" job or messing around. But even then, why create a client's job in a totally new format if that's not supported at other agencies, clients and print shops? In the pro world, you really do need to be able to share editable files and currently InDesign is the one most have/use.
     
    I would love to adopt Affinity Pub. It looks good in the preview video and we do like AP and AD. But we need to be able to correctly open InDesign files in order to actually use the new app for more than playing around. That's just business.

    KC Honie reacted to smadell in Affinity, we need clarification: are you or aren’t you working on a DAM?   
    I have started using Fast Raw Viewer and find it fast and really effective. Also pretty inexpensive. It displays a histogram based on the actual Raw data (and not the embedded jpg) which makes it great if you use a technique like ETTR. I can cull through all my Raw files quickly, and not wait 5-10 seconds for each image to display - it's as close to instantaneous as I can imagine.

    I think a "We" stands for a bunch of people here in the forum and out there on the net.
     
    So yes, the question is important for many users incl. myself.

    With the Adobe's announcement of Lightroom CC (and cloud only storage) and depreciation of Lightroom Classic CC is it time to strike with Affinity DAM while the iron is hot...

    The money is in hosting customers data...  LR Classic CC will go the same way as LR perpetual licenses...  Once LR CC has feature parity with LR Classic CC, LR Classic will be as dead as making buggy whips...  IMHO...

    LR CC requires that you store your files on Adobe's cloud (a significant cost for large amounts of data)...
     
    I for one will NEVER allow my IP to be stored anywhere but on media that I explicitly control...

    Exactly, if one is locked in to LR then by default you are also locked in to PS...
     
    I really do like the affinity products, but for photographers they are incomplete without a DAM.
     
    I am going to have to re-up my CC Photography subscription and therefore over the next year or so will add many thousands of photos to LR.  At some point switching becomes impossible
     
    Unless of course the DAM will import LR edits

    I don't dispute that, but Adobe is obscenely overpriced...  
     
    The current feature set and the roadmap of Affinity products should make a lot pf people question their use of Adobe products.
     
    But it would be nice to purchase Photo at the same discount as Designer :)
     
     
    PS. There desperately needs to be a credible DAM and an import from Lightroom would be fantastic!!!
