  1. Why is Affinity (Serif?) being so casual and non-committal with this? We buy your software because you tell us how good it is and then you don't support the cameras we buy. The M50 has been out for quite some time now and people have been requesting file support for 6 months for this camera. I am disgusted that Affinity has no sense or urgency to make people's files usable. I think I'll do what others have done and go back onto a Lightroom/Photoshop subscription. At least Adobe allows us to use our files without going through hoops first. I am totally unimpressed. I also bought On1 Raw Photo 2019 and that is just as bad. Subscriptions are clearly the way to go if one wishes to be kept up-to-date with software. A lot of people are going to realise this.
  2. Hi everyone, I am new to this software and forum. I was looking at the Perspective tool in the photo app and it is not really a perspective tool from what I can see. A proper perspective tool uses mathematical calculations. For example, I have a cityscape and the buildings are leaning slightly inwards from tilting the camera upward. A proper perspective tool will make the buildings taller as they straighten vertically to correct "perspective". Either I am doing something wrong or the Perspective tool in the photo app merely distorts an image by dragging corner nodes of a grid? That is not perspective correction... that is a "distort the image and take a guess as to how it should look" tool. This tool relies on the user dragging each top corner node outwards to straighten the buildings vertically (guessing by eye) and also expects the user to pull the nodes upwards (again guessing by eye) to keep the real shape of the buildings or they end up too short for their widths. To make matters worse, as you drag a corner node the entire grid warps so that you can't even use the grid a as a reference to see if the buildings are actually vertical. Trying to judge by eye whether or not the buildings are parallel to the edges of the image itself while being mesmerised by a load of leaning grid lines is both inaccurate and insane. It would be great to have a proper perspective tool as this is a very used tool by photographers.
