  1. Thanks Richard. I'll try to set the thing as you suggest. Thanks Walt, I'll try to find this workaround.
  2. I seem to have an similar problem using Capture One and Affinity simultaneously. As there is no organizer in Affinity, and as I am using Sony cameras, I have installed Capture One Express for Sony. It has a good RAW editor for Sony pics and a well developed organizing feature. Should be easy to store, catalogue and tag pics in Capture One and then just select, drag and drop on the Affinity work area. Nine times out of ten Affinity crashes. I have now paused Capture One, reinstalled Affinity Photo, but Affinity is still unstable. I understood from an old (2017) comment by Mark Ingram that this has something to do with the NVDIA settings, but is this a remaining problem, also when not using Capture One any more and can you reset NVDIA or is there another solution to this problem? I would like to be able to use Affinity and Capture One together, as both are good programs. Has some kind of solution been developed since 2017?
  3. Thanks, I'll check the More options and how they specify formats. There are no layers in the exported TIFF. /Dennis
  4. Hi, I am preparing pics for printing. When I upload files in TIFF the print shop cannot open the files. On their support page there are instructions for TIFF formats as enclosed below, presumably referring to PhotoShop settings. How do I handle corresponding settings on a pc in Affinity Photo?
  5. Hi Gabe, I contacted Capture One support and received subsecuently a small zip to install. Apparently it just changes the name of a registry. I don't know what's in it, but the problem seems to be solved. I could of course just pass on the zip, but I think, as this zip was property of Capture One, this issue should really be adressed directly between Capture One and Affinity development. Anyway, this was the guy I talked to at Capture One support: Victor (Support) <hello@captureone.com>
  6. Hi again Komatös, I received a small zip from Capture One support that when installed changes something in a registry. Now both programs seem to work together.
  7. Thanks Komatös! It took me a while on my own to figure out what was happening.
  8. Hi Gabe, interesting work tonight. A few days ago I received my new pc, a HP Z book, 32GB, and hoped that all previous problems with crashes now should be over. As soon as i stacked a series of images, Affinity crashed. I tried the Beta, same result. Talked to HP support, they didn't have a clue, except for a guess of a possible mishap in the factory installation of the system on the pc. I then zapped the pc tonight, and started to reinstall all the programs, beginning with Affinity, which then worked perfectly. After each new program installation I ran a stack in Affinity. All worked perfectly well, until I installed Capture One 21 for Sony. Then Affinity crashed, every time when stacking. The stack comes up fine, but when I choose an operator it crashes. I then unistalled Capture One, and now everything is just fine! I will inform the Capture One people about this.
  9. Ok, thanks, I noticed that.. It is tedious work to process 22 RAW files in Affinity, as they have to be handled one by one. In that case it's maybe a better idea to fix the RAW development is in another RAW handler, that can process all the files alike.
  10. Hi Gabe, I uploaded the AP file to the above address. This was the file that caused me problems and crashes. Hope this is what you meant with project file. It is a first attempt at star trails. The focusing was not 100% and there was light at the far left side, but this shouldn't affect the file handling in Affinity. The photography will eventually get better.
  11. Hi, I downloaded and installed the above drivers and rebooted the pc. No visible difference, several crashes during Flatten, in both AP and AP Beta. Then I clicked out the box Hardware acceleration under Preferencies and then it worked. Slowly, but it worked. Loading a huge doc like this one takes some time. If you would start a Flatten during this upload the program seems to crash. Anyway, AP seems to work now, so thanks a lot for y help!
  12. Hi, requested files enclosed. Awaiting your news. /Dennis 75ee28f5-d1e9-4262-93cd-84d4fcd6c0c5.dmp Log.txt
  13. Are you using the latest release version? (here's how to check) Can you reproduce it? Happens every time – a million times. (if you cannot then we may struggle to also, making it even harder to fix) Does it happen for a new document? If not do you have a document you can share that shows the problem? This problem occured when stacking a series of 22 RAW images for a star trail stack. It crashed multiple times, but finally I was able to save the Affinity document. It's a huge file, 3,4 GB. I cannot export a JPEG. I cannot flatten the document. I cannot export a slice. I can send the file if you want to, but through an FTP like Sprend or similar. If you cannot provide a sample document then please give an accurate description of the problem for example it should include most of the following: What is your operating system and version (Windows 10, OSX Mojave, iOS 12 etc)? Windows 10 What happened for you (and what you expected to happen) see above Provide a recipe for creating the problem (step-by-step what you did). See above Screenshots (very handy) or a screen capture/video. Any unusual hardware (like tablets or external monitors or drives that may affect things) or relevant other applications like font managers or display managers. No, a standard HP pavilion laptop bought last year, 8 GB RAM. Did this same thing used to work and if so have you changed anything recently? No, never tried such a large stack before, but I have seen stacks of 45 images in your instruction videos. (software or hardware) There seem to be a general instability in Affinity Photo in the last two releases.
