  1. Let's hope it'll happen sooner rather than later, I've had the M50 since August last year and still waiting. Best workaround for the meantime is to convert .cr3 files to .dng with the free Adobe.dng converter.
  2. I've downloaded the Windows beta. No, it doesn't work.
  3. OK thanks, then the PC version can't be too far behind. I really hope it happens soon... I love Affinity, but not being able to open the raw files really is a pain in the ass.
  4. Sounds great, but PLEASE also update file support for your raw engine. Canon .cr3, for instance...
  5. Another work around is to install Adobe's DNG converter and batch convert to DNGs which are not so heavy and can be opened in Affinity. But it's really a schlepp. I see CaptureOne now has support for CR3 files, so might have to go there.
  6. Please look at supporting .CR3 files. Contrary to popular belief, Canon is still the biggest camera company in the world - and all their new cameras will use it. https://photorumors.com/2018/08/01/2018-canon-nikon-and-sony-market-share-latest-nikkei-bcn-and-cipa-reports/
  7. Yes, I was wondering too... would love you forerver if you added .Cr3...
  8. Thanks Fchen, so that means it will be a while still. In the meantime I've found out that the new Faststone Image Viewer now has cr3 support. What do you use to convert your files so you can edit them in Affinity Photo? I've tried converting through Adobe DNG Converter to dng, also through Canon's DPP to TIFF... can't quite decide which is best... Adobe DNG is much faster, but it feels like I'm getting better results through Canon DPP... you?

  10. But is there any plan to include .cr3 support in the desktop raw engine?
  11. Just a reminder - still waiting and there are already two other new Canon cameras that use the .CR3 format.
  12. I have the same problem. Guys, Canon's .cr3 format will be used in all their cameras from now, the new full-frame EOS-R uses it and so will the SX70-HS. Please, would appreciate an update for Affinity Photo's raw engine. At the moment I first have to convert it to .dng berfore I can work with it.
  13. Hi, also Yes, I'm also waiting. It's really tedious and slow to develop the raw philes in Canon's Digital Photo Professional first. And I find that, if I convert it with the free Adobe DNG converter, the dng files look very washed out in Affinity Photo. Please guys.... the M50 is already the best selling camera in Japan, and all Canon's new cameras will use cr3.
  14. Thanks Dan. I suspect Canon's new generation of cameras that are about to come out will all work with .cr3 instead of .cr2 RAW files anyway, so I'm sure it'll soon be a thing, the M50 is just the first one. And of course I understand that new cameras are coming out all the time - just thought I'd make you aware of this :-)
  15. Hi guys, I've bought the new Canon M50 mirrorless but Canon's new .CR3 RAW file format isn't yet supported by your raw engine. Do you have any plans to add it soon or will I have to do a tedious workaround for the foreseeable future? It's the first time in the eight months since I've joined the Affinity revolution that I've missed Photoshop - Adobe RAW added it somewhere in April already.
