  1. I can post a couple of videos: I use the same file (PSD format, 4800x4800 px, CMYK, 58 layers) on two iPads, one with Affinity Photo 1.7.1, the other with Affinity Photo 1.6.12.86. For this recordings I've turned on the "show touch" option in order to make clear when I touch the screen with fingers and the pen and when the strokes are shown on the screen.

    The file is 8bit. I've tried to convert it to 16bit as suggested by p_mac, but nothing changed, maybe even slower....

    Let's start with iPad Pro 10,5" 256gb, ram 4gb, Apple Pencil (1st generation), Affinity Photo build 1.6.12.86. We can notice that there are some little delays on the resolution refresh when I pan and zoom, but nothing so really bad. After some initial jamming with the pen, the strokes follow quite smoothly the pen tip on the screen.

     

     

    Let’s pass now on iPad Pro 2018 12,9” 1TB, ram6gb, Apple Pencil (2nd generation), Affinity Photo build 1.7.1. Here the resolution refresh panning and zooming is  slower, but what is really bad is the stroke delay, making the app unusable to work on this file. 

     

     

    I really hope these recordings could help to let the 1.7.1 build to back to work as well (or even better, if possible) as the 1.6.12.86.

    The only steps I am doing are

     

    1.  Create a new document with a size of 4000 x 4000 pixels

    2. Try to draw on the canvas using the pencil

    3. Notice how laggy it is

     

    I've tried using the iPads screen recorder,  but it doesn't seem to identify where the screen has been pressed (i.e with a red dot) which means it is hard to show how laggy it is.

    You can turn on the "show touches" (or so.. I'm Italian and I'm not sure how it's translated in the English version) option directly in the Affinity Photo preferences, General.


  3. A few days ago I've updated Affinity Photo for iPad to the 1.7.1 crossing fingers that the slowing resolution refresh and stroke delays would be fixed but... unfortunately they're still there! :-((((

    I can't figure out how an app that worked almost perfectly in the 1.6 version, it's now so corrupted to become almost unusable with some files that worked perfectly with 1.6.

    Please, if it's impossible to fix these issues, is there any way to back to the 1.6 version? It has the erase bug (that works also with finger touch even if settled only for pen), but at least I can use Affinity Photo to work again.

    So disappointed...

    A blank new document will create the issues if one sets the dimensions to say 16000 x 8000 pixels (I'm assuming this is not the minimum dimensions to experience lag problems)

    On a new document there is considerable lag to simple pencil drawings.

    On the previous versions of photo, there was no lag nor problems whatsoever with this size of document.

     

    I quote. At the beginning I thought it was a problem of the big file, but I've tried a blank new one and the problem is still there.


  6. Hi to all!

    Finally I've just downloaded the 1.7 version and it looks fantastic, moreover with some very annoying bugs finally fixed!

    But there's another problem: I'm working on an artwork in psd file format that with the previous Affinity Photo was loaded quickly and every pan and zoom on it was quick and smooth. Now with 1.7 the same file opens correctly bu when I pan and zoom it's very slower to load at the right resolution (just after the move operation the image became very pixelated and after a few seconds it is restored at the proper resolution.

    It seems almost that the iPad RAM is full or slower...

    I've tried also to export the same file in Affinity Photo format, but the behavior is exactly the same...

    Should have I to uninstall the app and to reinstall? Should I lost all my imported brushes and fonts in this way?

    Or could I back to the previous app version in some way?

    I'm using an iPad Pro 12,9" 2018 1TB.

    How is this possible? How can I fix this? I can't work in this condition...

    Thanks to everyone that will can help me!


  7. Thank you very much for your help! At least I can see if the new processor can affect performances in some way. ^_^

    Unfortunately I can't upload the file I've mentioned due to undisclosure agrrements with my client, but I've tried to replicate moe or less the same situation with another one: same canvas size, same dpi, roughly same number of layers. The file size although is lesser (460 mb instead of 1,5 GB, due to more simple images, I've drafted chaotic lines for quickness), but trying to open it on my iPad Pro 10,5" takes about 5 minutes and once opened the situation is the same: the app is unable to rendering the proper resolution, keeping a lot lower, and I can't hide or affect any layer.

    I'm uploading the file right now, although I suppose it will be a long process.

    Let me know and thanks again!


  8. Thanks GabrielM for the kind reply.

    I wouldn’t sound boring, but I really need a reply on this topic in order to make the proper decision for my near purchase.

     

    I’ll try to explain more in detail my situation, hoping to help someone to reply to this topic.

     

    Currently I’m working on a MacBook Pro Retina with Photoshop, to make huge artwork files with a lot of layers.

    In mobility I’m working on a iPad Pro 10,5” (256 GB SSD, 4GB of RAM) with Affinity Photo, which is the only app that better meets my needs.

     

    In the specific case, I have a PSD huge file size (1,5 GB file size, 7000x4200px, 400 dpi, CMYK) with really a lot of layers (about 160, between drawings, filters and adjustment layers) that understandably Affinity Photo on iPad take about 5 minutes to open and when it does the image shows all the layers, but at very low resolution (the pixels shown are very big, as if it isn’t able to render properly the image at right resolution). Moreover I can’t do anything  at the image (use brushes or other tools, not to hide and shows layers), because I suppose, the file is too huge to be managed by the app.

     

    Now I’m wondering if the new iPad Pro 2018 12,6” (with 1TB SSD, 6GB of RAM and a more powerful processor) could improve the experience on Affinity Photo with such huge file, making possible to work on it properly, or if the extra RAM and powerful processor will not affect in any way its performances.

     

    I hope someone will help me to understand. ^_^

    Thanks for the attention.

    I wouldn't sound boring, but I should really need this information in order to make the proper decision on my future purchase.

    I'll try to describe my situation more accurately, hoping this could help someone to reply to this topic.

    Currently I'm working on a Macbook Pro Retina with Photoshop, where usually I make huge artwork files with a loto of layers.

    In mobility I'm using an iPad Pro 10,5" (256 GB, 4gb RAM) with Apple Pencil and Affinity Photo, that currently is the app that meets better my needs on the iPad. I love it because is the only one app that allow me to import huge PSD files in CMYK mode and let me shift between Affinity Photo on iPad Pro to Photoshop on Macbook Pro without any problem. 

    More or less.... because a huge file like a 7000x4200 px at 400 dpi in CMYK mode (


  9. I read that the last model of iPad Pro 2018 has a different amount of Ram depending on the storage size: the 1TB HD model has 6 GB of Ram.

    Currently I'm using Affinity Photo on an iPad Pro 2017 (with 4GB of Ram) and it really suffers with huge PSD files with a lot of layers.

    I'm wondering if the same huge files could be managed more efficiently by Affinity Photo on the new iPad Pro 2018 with 6GB of Ram, or if this means nothing on the app performance.

    Thanks for the attention.
