  1. A follow up to this. I'm going to be using Capture One for time-lapses.
  2. If they are indeed "huge" one would imagine it would not be such a "huge" secret what they actually did. I assume it's safe to say no macro/batch editing has been added to the Develop Module. Those doing time-lapses and the many other macro/batch operations required processing RAW files will have to hold on switching to Affinity. It must be difficult to implement, because it has been requested for years now.
  3. Hi Octavian, As far as I know this is not yet possible in Affinity. I'm answering the question two years later for the sake of people like me looking into if this is available yet. JFisher, Macros with Batch Processing does not work in the Develop Module. This was the most important macro/batch enhancement you could have made in your "huge" macro/batch improvements in 1.7. I'll check back in another two years.

    Some help please!

    Professional time-lapse photography first and foremost requires processing of RAW files as a batch, synced with changes from one image. This is currently the only thing that still has me stuck with the competition, since Serif took care of my other gripes in v1.7. Video creation is not for a photo editing tool, and it would serve few properly to have this functionality added to Affinity Photo. This is really a task for a professional video editing application, where further colour work can be done, and 2D or even 3D camera movements can be emulated. You can find a tool to do that free. BMD's DaVinci Resolve is currently the best, and it will immediately recognize your .tiff sequence (the format you'll want to save in from RAW) as footage on import.
  5. Yes, I'm not under the belief the magic background removal fairy comes along and deletes the background when I push a button lol. The background was checkered (there was no background to begin with) and the result of my export was a black background after selecting transparent. It's not my first rodeo, I know about what was and what should work now. Perhaps this new version will fix the bug.
  6. This changes nothing for me. I still get a black background on export with everything set to transparent during png export. This software is cheap, but it acts like it sometimes.
  7. v_kyr what dedicated RAW processor would you use that's more flexible than PS? I do time-lapses with 500 plus RAW images through Adobe RAW, and it's neither inflexible or slow. I'll spend hours doing colour corrections and enhancements, and then it just smokes through it. I wish I could wash my hands of Adobe, but I'm still toting files to work (where they have a subscription) to do my heavy lifting.
  8. As usual, I appreciate the speed at which I receive a response from over there! It sounds good. I'm excited to break my Adobe bonds here lol.
  9. Thanks. Yes, I'm looking forward to it. Any idea when 1.7 will be out, and if that means an upgrade fee from the Affinity Photo I haven't even been able to use yet?
  10. You're not doing anything wrong. The "options" in the crop area are completely useless to someone in a production environment. This is my biggest beef with Affinity Photo, and the only reason I do not recommend it to other professionals. I've requested this be addressed, and I received a reply that it would be. All we want is a way to type in dimensions and a resolution desired, and to have Affinity constrain proportionally, and interpolate intelligently when we drag the handles of the crop tool and hit enter. "Just like Photoshop" is probably the bane of their developers existence lol. I crop loads of images every day with an old version of Photoshop, and my shiny new Affinity Photo gets almost zero usebecause of this simple oversight. Actually the only reason I've launched the app since I discovered the crop deficiency (the second time I ever launched it) was by accident.

    Crop tool needs a rewrite.

    Hello!, First off, I've never heard from anyone at Adobe regarding my feature requests (I've been using it since version 2.0). Needless to say I'm very impressed by this forum!!! I almost feel bad about how harsh I was (I'm accustomed to nobody listening, so perhaps I'd better go back to communicating like a proper human being). Thank you very much for this reply, and it's erased any doubt I have regarding my purchase of Affinity, and it's future! Keep it up!
  12. I'm a bit shocked that there aren't more people who'd like the (non) cropping tool in Affinity Photo rewritten, or perhaps it's still early days for pros to migrate to Affinity. I can't imagine a professional photo editor that doesn't require control over resolution (with built into the crop tool with a choice of interpolation type) and dimensions (constrained when they are typed in... why would you type them in if you wanted your handles to go wherever they want lol?). I don't know why I have to request such an obvious feature. Yes, I know how it's currently done in Affinity Photo, and I'm telling you that you might want to spend more time in Photoshop!
