    krbo got a reaction from Mark Ingram in Panasonic Lumix DC-TZ95, supported?   
    Silkypix is different story - it is official Panasonic camera software and they make new version every time with a new camera model (you can see a lot of versions at Panasonic download site). Usually specific for some models (you can't even download it if you don't enter valid serial number of the camera)
     
    Why they do that? Because they put correction data into a Silkypix itself and give you a highly Panasonic customized free version of software to be used with specific camera model.
    All other software vendors may or may not have (money!!!) that data.

    squeezer,
    I will not expect that Serif will solve color correction, saturation... for your camera by your expectation.
    I 'm not sure are develop assistant corrections camera model dependent or even RAW format dependent, but if they are - then including TZ95 may have some benefits.
     
    You are using well known Panasonic RW2 RAW format independent of the camera model and that is that - AP reads it and shows it to you as it was recorded by your sensor - the real meaning of RAW.
    Will you deliberately switch on some corrections in assistant is up to you but only way to get clean data is keep everything off no matter how dull it looks - that's why are you here to correct it as you wish instead some unknown japanese engineer making jpg out of it.
    Lens correction is another thing Serif has nothing with, they are simply using (as many others) ready made free data called LensFun database and to get your lens there somebody somewhere in the world must go through a tedious process of preparing a lot of pictures and making correction data for optical distortion, chromatic aberrations and vignette (for free in his spare time). Having TZ-70 and FZ-1000 before I know how horrifed you are with wide RAW shot, there were times I had no will to correct them and opted a JPG from camera.
     
    There are some good things:
    1. you can do it by yourself, include it in LensFun project and help all other TZ-95 owners in the world
    2. you can help LensFun database maintainers by sending required pictures and they will process them
    3. or you can at least try to clone existing data of the similar model as we now can add external lens data into a 1.7 beta (as I see in LensFun compact-panasonic.xml data nearest match is DMC-TZ71 with distortion and CA data (no vignetting data))
     
    detailed info about 1. and 2. can be found on LensFun home page: http://lensfun.sourceforge.net/lenslist/
     
    for 3. search this fine forum about adding external lens profiles into a 1.7 beta

    krbo got a reaction from Petar Petrenko in Depth map save/export please!   
    hi,
    recently a group of us, AP users, in "Affinity Photo - Tutorials" facebook group are discussing making a so-called FB 3D photos for which you need a photo and it's depth-map simultaneously uploaded where FB combines them in a 3D effect photo.
    so anyone trying this will have a really great help from depth-maps generated in a focus merge process only if we can save/export them in some photo format (Helicon and Zerene uses TIFF)
    I think it will be a very small effort from Serif developers as depth map is already there, just save it somewhere.

    Auto-update isn't immediately enabled (we use a staggered release just in case forum users detect a critical bug that would mean we need to pull the beta).

    @Subclavius is referring to the X on the document's view (in both statements). I've just tried this, and it is indeed a bug. It's probably that the application is crashing after the save (we're already aware of some issues around saving at the minute, and this should be fixed in the next beta).

    krbo reacted to Chris B in reversed macro steps in 284 beta problem   
    Hey krbo,
    The Layers Panel has undergone some slight changes which I think has introduced this issue. 
    I've managed to reproduce this from scratch using the release and importing the macro into the beta so I'll log a bug report for you and attach my macro. 
    Thanks

    krbo got a reaction from Chris B in reversed macro steps in 284 beta problem   
    Hi,
    have some macro steps reorder problem i Win 284 beta:
    Here is macro (an old one which I reuse on every new version):

    so it's denoise-clarity-high pass order and after running I have:

     
    completely reversed 
    now there is another problem: none of the nested filters can't be moved to a first position (directly below Pixel layer) with a mouse, I can move filters down or up as long as it is not top most position.
    moving and dropping on to a Pixel layer itself always put everything on a last position in chain
    finally tried to make a new macro in this beta version - also had to take steps reversed - first add high pass, then clarity and denoise to have them in proper order

    this is a great new feature - immediately added my Oly Mk2 lens which is not (yet) in lensfun database but is optically equal to a Mk1 - simply copied data with proper EXIF name tag
    and it works great - thank you!!!

    Hi,
     
    it took time to pinpoint this but you have a bug just like Exiftool long time ago - AP can't read and empties all EXIF data from pictures in folders named with local language specfic characters (like ŠĐŽĆČ )
    when file is in pure ASCII named folder everything is OK

    krbo reacted to Chris B in Left mouse click GUI bugs 1.7.0.243   
    Hey krbo,
    1. Yes I see what you mean. This doesn't happen on macOS so I will log this for you.
    2. This seems to be a result of issue 1. When I double-click a filter, it seems to select the other layer(s) and gives me a 0 value. If I double-click again, it singles out the filter layer I want and displays the correct values.
    I found that even though both filters get selected, it does open the correct filter dialog, however it's pointless as we're getting the 0 value.
    Thank you
  16. Thanks
    krbo got a reaction from Chris B in Left mouse click GUI bugs 1.7.0.243   
    Another small GUI bugs:
     
    1. Pixel layer with several filters - to select individual one with mouse two clicks are required - first one selects all of them and then second one on the required filter.
    2. Double click when single filter is selected gives empty filter properties (mostly zeroes as paramteres)
