    Crashes when developing RAW files

    Just to clarify @Blende21 In my case, the app does fully crash. It does not freeze (become unresponsive). The app quits itself and returns me to the Home Screen from where I have to launch it again. As a result of the crash, a crash report is saved to Settings → Privacy → Analytics etc. :)

    Crashes when developing RAW files

    I wanted to report the same problem. As of the last update to the iPad app, I can no longer open TIFF files to edit them. It doesn't matter if those files are 8bit or 16bit. Here's my workflow: Edit a RAW file quickly in Pixelmator Photo beta. Save TIFF file to Dropbox. Open TIFF file from Affinity Photo. At this point, the file usually would load into Development mode. After the last update, the Development persona opens and everything is black. I still see all the sliders, and for the heck of it, I tap the checkmark to develop the image I can't see. Now Affinity Photo *always* crashes. Once I reopen the app, I can see the image I just tried to load in the little preview, but when I tap to open it again loads into the all black Development persona and I can keep playing the crashing game To rule out sudden issues with the Pixelmator Photo beta (mind you, it did work just fine grabbing files from it before the last Affinity update), I created some TIFF files directly from Lightroom on the Mac. Same result. To rule out a corrupted app bundle (due to the update), I reinstalled Affinity Photo on iPad. Same result, the crashes continue. Current workaround for me: export to PSD instead of TIFF. Those files are opened just fine. I haven't noticed anything else being affected, I just can't work with TIFF files anymore. Sorry, forgot to add the tech specs: iPad Pro 9.7" (2017) iOS 12.1.2 (16D5024a)
  3. Hey John, Thanks so much for the explanation! You might be right: in James' video, there were only stars so the app didn't have to decide between foreground and sky, as is the case in my photo. I’m relieved, I already started to doubt my ability to click the same buttons as he did I’ll play around with this a bit more, thanks for getting me on the right track!
  4. Hey guys, I’ve been trying to follow along with James’ tutorial on YouTube on how to get pin sharp stars. Unfortunately, I am already failing right after the import: (macOS 10.13, Mac App Store version of Affinity Photo – my trial expired so I had to buy the app even though I wanted to test this first ) 1. I had my RAW images in Lightroom. 2. I exported them to a folder on my Desktop (.tif format). 3. I opened AP → File → New Stack. 4. I selected all my 56 photos, which were taken over the course of 10 minutes. If I select "Auto Align", I end up with one single layer at the end, and no stars. The trees are there, the castle is there, but no stars. It’s as if AP has "denoised" the sky and in the process removed the stars. If I do not select Auto Align (just for kicks), it doesn’t matter if I pick mean or media for the group – no stars in the sky, either. If I select Outlier or anything else, I get star trails (which I don’t want). Of course, my individual layers in the group have the stars, but how do I get them to show up in the "Live Stack Group"? I must be missing something super obvious – help?

    Pay and update

    Thanks, MEB, that time line really helps! Looks like there will be two additional presents under the christmas tree for me this year. Thanks for putting the workbook together, I’ve looked through the reviews and your "Making of" blog post and I trust a company that puts so much care into their "support" materials. Consider me a new customer

    Workbook for Affinity for Ipad

    Thank you so much for the explanation, Stokberg. I’d thought as much, but it’s good to hear it confirmed.

    Pay and update

    Hey MEB, Is there any sort of timetable on AP 2.0? My reason for asking: with the current discount on the App Store, I am considering to *maybe* buy the Mac app, and the AP workbook to have an easier time getting started. If AP 2.0 were to ship in half a year, I’d rather wait for a new version instead of investing time and money into the "old" one. I realize you might not be able to give me any specifics, and I’m not asking for them, but I’d just like to know if an investment into the current version makes sense (I’ll happily pay for v2, just don’t want to do that within the next 6-12 months). Thanks.

    Workbook for Affinity for Ipad

    I’ve got a very similar question. I am not sure if I want to use Affinity on my Mac, but I have it for the iPad and was wondering if the Workbook for Mac can be used to learn Affinity Photo on iPad, or if the differences are too big and the Mac book won’t be very useful to me.
