  1. When I try to record steps from "developer" Affinity crashes. Steps - Start Image from Nikon D850 -> Nikon NX-D for Raw conversion -> Export Tiff to Affinity from Nikon NX-D - Start Macro recorder and start record - Go to Develop - Select Basic with own settings (drop down, setting selected) - Select details with own settings (Drop Down, settings selected) - Close develop -> Affinity crashes I restarted Affinity, I restarted the PC, but the crash remains. -> Repetitive My equipment: - Benq SW271-B - PC Windows 10, latest update - Ryzen 7 - 3,2 GhZ
  2. Mark, That I only can confirm.
  3. Good news. The more because they created an update. I'm doubting if I should update. For the moment they included some Basic dxo tool in the package. As long Vivenza is not working within Affinity, this additional tool might be very attractive, and puts user / new customer decisions for Affinity at risk. Would be a pitty, because Affinity is a great tool.
  4. Please have some trust. Affinity reached out a support question to DxO. It works within Adobe Photoshop, lightroom, Adobe elements and by image export from Nikon capture NX-D. Also, once a Tiff is exported from Affinity and loaded into vivenza it works w/o issues. I've good trust Affinity will solve it if DxO is willing to support. Both can benefit from it. There are more (general) Photoshop plug-in that suddenly might start working if this issue is solved. If the plug-ins really start working, Adobe might get an issue, because this currently holds a lot of Adobe users to Adobe. Second part is the color card checker support. But this is another topic on the wish list. "x rite colorchecker" (lightroom plugin)
  5. The monitor is calibrated with Xrite i1-Display against the D65 profile. My monitor follows sRGB. (end of the month it will be replaced by a Benq SW271 Adobe RGB monitor, because I deliver monthly photos for magazines in CMYK. sRGB cannot show all CMYK colors.) I use Nikon - NXD to create the tiff file which I open in Affinity, using the AdobeRGB color format. But also the sRGB files from the D700 and D750 are not working properly. I can send you a raw file and/or the tiff file for testing if you like.
  6. Sankos, Well, I tested you preferred reference images, and the specific plugins behave the same like many reported already. So I only can conclude they were right.
  7. Mark, When I use test-shots of my old D70s than it also works, but it does not work with the shots taken with D700 and D750 camera's. Hope to get this working. :-)
  8. Mark, I've tested it, Vivenza2 this is still not working. Sorry. But "color effects" looks ok now, at least with the files I tested! (Also with Adobe RGB)
  9. Agree, would bring serious added value, I really don't know why it isn't seen by Affinity developers.
  10. I just can say that I completely understand you. I also gave up Affinity wrt to the Nik tools. I really do not understand why Affinity keeps ignoring this issue. They would collect so many more people if they would support those. In my opinion they really underestimate this wish. However, because I anyway dislike the RAW importer from Affinity up to now I use Nikon Capture NX-D upfront any Affinity edit. Colors are much to saturated, blue purple is handled very bad with the raw import (see my other posts) and lens support is very slow. I have to ommit, Adobe will stay as reference here, but also adobe is not reaching the C-NXD quality. So what I did: I start my raw images in Nikon Capture NXD. Inhere you have the option to do local adjustment which is build in (Vivenza kind) Here after I import my image as tiff to affinity. Or if I need more Nik tools adjustments I use the standalone versions. Once done I read the tiff into Affinity. Other option is to export to Vivenza2 or another Nik tool from Capture NX-D. Once done, pick-up the tiff file and import it into Affinity for further editing. I agree, the complete flow is much better in Adobe, but I also prefer starting Capture-NX-D upftont Adobe. Specially because I use an older (non-cloud based) Adobe Photoshop. This tool understands my new cameras & settings where Adobe stopped any support. And I get much better results now that direct raw import in Affinity.
  11. I guess so, but I also wanted to point out that there are ways to get superb color and local control results with affinity. And yes, the local adjustments almost viveza are in NXD!
  12. MakSpyat, I agree that it is frustrated and this lack of working wioth plug-ins does not a make Affinity the software to go instead of Adobe. However, do not under estimate that NXD is also able to do almost the same Vivenza2 does. Once done, you can start Affinity from NXD. From that moment colors are handled or, also the raw convertor doe not mess-up and Affinity does a great job. Yes, the plug-in are still a very weak point at Affinity. Yes I would accept to pay more for Affinity if this would work perfect.
  13. Yes, but that takes already years at Affinity. That is why I still use adobe beside Affinity. If Affinity want to grow seriously, and want to have user moving from Adobe to Affinity, because many people want to switch, decent plug-in support accepting Adobe plugins should be a focus area. If I was product manager at Affinity I would go for this. I bet this will increase the nr of licenses seriously and also makes it more interesting for 3th party developers to develop plug ins for Affinity too. This will turn around in even more users. Next point is the x1 color card adoption. Both are mainly realted to color handling which makes the program professional or not.
  14. @Laurentia. Attached the screenshot from CNX-D Source Raw photo was shot in sRGB color space.
  15. Yes I did. Was confused by cnx-d. Of course you meant Capture NX-D (CNX-D :-) ) The second picture was opened as nef in cnx-d and transported is as tiff to Affinity. I also will add the screenshot from CNX-D when I'm at my office again.
