Hi all, just downloaded my copy of affinity photo and having a look around. I'm experiencing very poor performance when switching to the tone mapping persona. With small images (500x500px) switching to the tone mapping takes about 30 seconds. With larger images (5000x5000px) it takes over 1.5 hours! Once the persona is loaded performance is fine. I have no performance issues with any other part of the software.
I have in the past run, photoshop, lightroom, GIMP, Hugin and a few others on my machine and never experienced any issues when using similar tools to that of the tone mapping persona. This is not an issues relating to the physical hardware speed of my machine. This poor performance must instead be linked either to software/driver issues on my computer or to the optimisation and performance of the software itself.
Can anyone shed any light on this please. I have 13 days left on my refund period so have until then to get things resolved. It's a shame as it seems to do exactly what I want.
