  1. Thanks, and sorry for late answer.. I'll have a look at it and reply tomorrow or so Cheers Aleksander
  2. I found one, but It's not close to what I need or know from before I just wonder if I missed something or if there's another one similar to Adobe's PS CC "Apply image".
  3. Hello. Is there any "apply image" function in AP similar to PS CC's own "apply image"? I want to use it for "apply one channel of N layer to current selected mask", or "apply one channel to another channel for RGB mixing - with different opacity and blend modes", etc. It's one of my most used functions in PS CC. I use it almost daily in the winter when it's dark outside, just to give blue channel better SNR by replacing whole or part of the noisy blue channel. Thanks Aleksander
  4. At least my nVidia 1080 Ti got 11 GB Vram, so it can't be that
  5. I agree, but I also think "the Apple Approach" which some people use is the wrong way to do it, blaming the users or hardware before considering bugs or optimization. I've lost count how many times people suggested this to me - including on this forum under current or my old user. I got no problem sharing logs and config with Affinity to give them more to work with, but I'm told "you're doing it wrong" or "your pc is configured wrong" quite often, even on fresh installs I saw one guy on this forum getting told he got a bad or slow "PSU" (Power supply unit) and thats why it laggs.. Go figure. Yay, Winblows. Wuuu ----- Time to get out hiking and shooting some, later Aleksander
  6. Thank you for linking, but I'm afraid I need a G-Sync or FreeSync monitor to fix that issue. I "only" got a "normal" AdobeRGB monitor. No place to disable Gsync or Aleksander
  7. CaptureOne is the fastest app I got except for Photo Mechanic. I can have 10 layers with luminosity masking, curves, sharpening, etc, and still no slow-dows. ""Now I do wonder if maybe there is a setting in your video card drivers that is causing the issues by not having 2D acceleration turned on."" Then I would have problems in the 10+ other editing apps I own, wouldnt I? But no, only in the 3 apps of Affinity. ""Can you assign app refresh rates? Part of the issue looks like refresh is not high enough, like playing a game on a bad screen or maybe worse."" Yes, 60hz on my BenQ SW2700PT QHD 99.6% AdobeRGB monitor. I don't believe for a second that this have anything with a setting or misconfiguration. All nVidia settings are default and Affinity is just as slow before and after reinstall of Operating system. The PC is built by professionals. I can edit 4k and 6k videos no problem while watching Netflix and run a game, and only then I'll notice CPU have to work. It's no logic that Affinity Photo or Designer should be like this when it's the only open Window I got, and the picture is only 400px. We are talking about I can do everything else in the world on the PC flawlessly, except have a great experience with the Affinity Apps, so for me it is quite obvious that its not a setting, its not bad this or bad that, it is simply not support for real hardware acceleration. My reasoning: CPU; never above 30% and GPU never above 15%. Aleksander
  8. I wouldn't be this harsh then, but I'm not sure if it is worthy the comparison of what they show in the Keynote. The keynote demo was too amazing for me to go back and open this Windows app, kinda frustrating when you regularly work with very big images or many layers. I'll give them a clap for making RAW edit and HDR editor better, a lot more fluid, but not nearly fluid compared to anything else. Okay then, I'll stop sobbing about Winblows PCs and their issues with MAC Native apps. Good luck and we cheer for you DEVs. I'm out. Peace. Aleksander
  9. Sure, but there are still valid options on the table.. On the other hand, what are Affinity suggesting we users do then? Drop our $2-4000 Windows PCs and buy a $5000 MAC because there are no other rendering engine that Affinity want to use? I'd like that, but I ain't got any $5000 for a MAC.. It's kinda cheaper to just use another program then, yet I stick with this syrup to save some bucks from subscriptions. I don't think OpenCL is going anywhere soon. Too many applications depending on it, and I think even Skylum use OpenCL in their new apps as-well, but thats my 5 cents. I hope you manage to find a solution because it is not a good experience so far. I really mean it when I say rendering a 4k video and playing Battlefield 4 is a more fluid experience than having only Affinity Photo open and a 400px image.. Best Regards Aleksander
  10. Then I find it strange that PhaseOne still improves upon the OpenCL engine. After v12 we notice quite a big speed improvement, same OpenCL as before, but different coding of course.
  11. Hello mr DEV. Just a question. Why not OpenCL? I don't think you use this right now. At least it doesn't look like it. Win10 PRO. Threadripper 1920x 4.1 GHz, 32GB RAM, 1080 Ti, NVMe SSD, SSD Raid. 400px image. Laggs like this in all your apps. It get far worse on 12 Mpixel images. Aleksander
  12. Why do you think they cripple mac if enhancing windows? It's not even the same code AFAIK. You cant make a MAC version then just rename extention to .exe to make it Windows compatible. They could utilize OpenCL for Windows just like CaptureOne does.
