  1. (and .123) have a new tone map feature - Clamp to SDR. I could not find it in help file, google, etc. Wondering what it does - or if this is a place holder for new functionality that is on the way. Thanks! B.
  2. Brightness adjustment is not working properly. Thanks, B.
  3. I saw this bug as well. My workaround was to use shadows/highlights filter, and place brightness/contrast below that. I do not see this bug on every image. Thanks, B.
  4. Sometimes when I wait a minute or so the histogram will 'snap' back to life, responding as it should. But not always. These screenshots were taken about ten minutes after entering the Tone Map Persona. Let me know if the attached files are too closely cropped - the thumbnails are missing the histogram. Update: As I was typing this, the histogram finally came around - not sure if this is a bug, or if the software has a harder time with some photos than others. Any help or enlightenment appreciated! B.
  5. Here are my specs:

    [AP 1.6.6] Develop persona messing up raws?

    I am no longer seeing this issue.
  7. Noticed that I was getting very noisy results with HDR Merge/Tone Map/Noise Reduction. This was greatly improved by doing the HDR Merge with Noise Reduction and Tone Mapping turned off. Noise Reduction then performed as expected. However, the noise returned when I performed Tone Mapping. I can post the photos if that helps (they are low-light and pretty noisy to begin with). Thanks, LevelB
  8. Did some more checking - it appears that something else may be happening. HDR Merge/Tone Map works as expected - unless Noise Reduction is selected. The default 40% noise reduction does not seem to work properly, and trying to then use the live denoise filter gives poor results. Maybe this is an edge condition - these are pretty noisy pics, shot as I was checking out a new filter. Hoping you have a great holiday season!

  9. Just noticed that the zoom commands (command 1 and command 0) are not working. I tried restarting 105, but still not working.

    Double Image on Opening Raw File

    Here are some earlier posts on this: B.

    Double Image on Opening Raw File

    I first saw this issue last fall, I believe - unsure what version I was on then. It has been very hit or miss for me. Sometimes restarting my MacBook works for awhile, sometimes not. Not every RAW file fails. I have never seen it with the Serif RAW engine, though. I made some some posts at that time, I will search for them. Hope this helps - and glad to hear it was logged, though I thought this had already occurred. B.

    Double Image on Opening Raw File

    Still seeing this in 1.6.7. Will this be addressed in the next beta? Thanks, B.
  13. I have found that when I create a set of .jpg files using New Batch Job, the resulting files are unusably dark. This only seems to occur if my .afphoto files were created using New HDR Merge (I have not tested Stack or Focus). I got the same (dark) result when I unchecked the Tone Map box. These same .afphoto files will process just fine one at a time using File -> Export. I can also do a New Batch Job export with no problem on sets of .afphotos created from single RAW format files. The export settings (New Batch Job and File -> Export) are the same as near as I can tell. Thanks, B.
  14. My issue with flickering seems to be resolved tonight. My MacBook Pro (2017) was connected to my external monitor (Acer 2560x1440 res) via an HDMI adapter. I read somewhere that this type problem could be caused by the adapter/cable converting the signal from 60 to 30 Hz (no idea if this is true) with a recommendation of getting a cable to run directly from the Mac usb-c port to the monitors’s DisplayPort. A $15 cable from Amazon seems to have fixed this issue for me. My monitor was solid for 2.5 hours with AP 1.6.6 tonight. Good luck. B.
  15. I am also having this issue: 2017 MacBook Pro High Sierra AP 1.6.6 Acer K272HUL 2560x1440 Preferences: Metal, OpenGL, Software - seems to occur in all modes Definitely getting worse... BUT - this is also occurring when AP is closed (quit) - but not as often... Any proposed workarounds (color space, resolution, etc., would be welcome). Thanks, B.

    [AP 1.6.6] Develop persona messing up raws?

    This split image(?) issue with Apple RAW Image is occurring whether or not I quit and restart AP. I just had one set of images sail through with no problem, the second set split. Quit then restarted AP and got the same result.
  17. Thanks for your response. B.
  18. Using: Lumix DMC-zs100 2017 MacBook Pro High Sierra Lens Correction Seems to be working properly with Apple (Core Image RAW) RAW Engine, although I am still getting this result occasionally with HDR Merge:

    [AP 1.6.6] Develop persona messing up raws?

    I am also seeing this. Panasonic DMC-ZS100, .rw2 In my system this only seems to occur with the Apple Raw Engine selected in the Develop Assistant but like some other errors in AP 1.6.6 and High Sierra, it is erratic and I cannot reliably reproduce the problem. For now, I am quitting AP between photos, as this seems to give more stable results. Thanks, B.

    AP 1.6.6 HDR Merge

    This solution worked for me. Thanks, B.
  22. I think I saw the same thing the other day: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/36155-dark-exports-with-new-batch-job-using-new-hdr-merge/ B.
