    Defringing buggy

    Any word on when the next update to Affinity Photo may be expected? I downgraded to 1.5.2 because of this defringing bug, as well as the bugs with AP Develop integration with the Photos app with regard to RAW images. Hoping that the next version will address these bugs, as I haven't been able to find a workaround!

    Defringing buggy

    Switched rendering to OpenGL (Basic), but seeing the same rendering artefacts when using the defringing filter as before. I tried defringing the same image in AP 1.5.2 on a different machine, and that worked as expected. This leads me to believe that something has changed (likely for worse) in the defringing feature of AP 1.6.6. It's a bit of a bummer, as that's my most-used feature in Affinity Photo

    AP Develop bug with Apple RAW engine

    Reset the app, and also changed to OpenGL (Basic) in preferences (to remedy an issue with erroneous rendering while defringing), but still cannot open a RAW via the Mac Photos App using the Apple Core RAW engine in Affinity. To be specific, I get a blank image in the Develop Persona that is 0x0 px, but all the exif data is correct. When I click on Develop, AP crashes.
  4. Click on the Assistant button, and then on Develop, and you will see a dropdown to select the RAW engine. Sorry for the delay in responding.

    AP Develop bug with Apple RAW engine

    Hi Chris, thanks for the follow-up. Here is a representative RAW file (.NEF) https://www.dropbox.com/s/o58nxeyf4e4a10l/DSC_8276.NEF?dl=0
  8. When the Apple Core RAW engine for the Develop is invoked via Photos for Mac "Edit in Affinity Photo", the window stays blank and the RAW photo doesn't appear even after waiting for a few minutes. Clicking on Develop or Cancel crashes the program. There was a similar bug in 1.5.2, where Affinity Photo would crash straight up.

    Defringing buggy

    Just upgraded to Affinity Photo 1.6.6, and found the rendering in the defringing tool in the Develop Persona and Photo Persona (live filter) to be buggy. In 1.5.2, I would see just the fringe colors change when using the color slider. Now, large swaths of the image show a change in color, and this changes even when zooming in or out of the image (holding everything else the same).
  10. Chris - thanks for the response, and for confirming the finding and passing it along to development. I've been enjoying using Affinity Photo in recent months after having outgrown the capabilities of Photos for MacOS, so it feels good to give back, even if in a small way!
  11. I was having a problem where Affinity Photo kept crashing when I tried to use the "Edit with Affinity Photo" extension in Photos for MacOS to edit RAW files. After some troubleshooting, I found that AP 1.5.2 crashes in this scenario when it is set to use the Apple (Core Image RAW) option rather than the Serif Labs option. The latest AP 1.6 Beta also shows the same behavior. Hopefully this saves others a few hours of troubleshooting. A fix from the developers will be appreciated.
  12. I too was searching for a way to rotate images in the Develop Persona, and found this post instead. I manage my photos in Photos for Mac and use the Affinity extension to edit RAW images. I need the ability to rotate images effortlessly in the Develop Persona without switching to the Photo Persona just for rotation, and I hope to see it at the earliest. Meanwhile, if there are any keyboard shortcuts for rotation in the Develop Persona, that would be appreciated!
