  1. I'd also would love to see a more advanced raw batch processor and even a whole digital asset management software from serif. I'm working in visuell effect and tell everybody working in that field that AP is the best way for creating Matte Paintings (32bit & ACES workflow!). But I'd also love to tell my collogues that AP is also the best tool for processing raw files directly into ACES, look through your library of images, sort/label them and so on. 😉 Please guys, make it happen!
  2. Hi Kenzor, I found a solution for your problem and posted it below. Hope it helps!
  3. Hi! I've came across the same issue while testing a Nuke, Affinity roundtrip and found a solution. You have to crop your image before exporting it from Nuke. Simple 🙂 Alternatively inside AP you go to Document > Margins > disable Include Margins Hope that helps! @ Affinity Team Is there a specific reason or thought behind the way AP is reading/writing those files that way or is it a bug? Would be nice if this could be addressed for a future release. Thanks a lot for the clarification. Best wishes dk
  4. Any news on clipping a pixel layer to a group? If I rasterize the group it works as expected but that's not an option as I need the ability to adjust elements inside the group.
  5. Is there a faster way to copy adjustment layers? Unfortunately I can not select multiple adjustment to copy them. Grouping and adding the adjustments on top makes no sense here, because I like to copy and then tweak them. Kind of the same question: In PS it's not perfect but possible to copy adjustments. But you have to re-clip them to the new layer. Please tell me that AP is better in this simple task and I'm just missing something here. Cheers PS: I'm using Affinity Photo but I guess Photo and Designer share the same concept.
  6. Thanks a lot for your helpful answer Gabriel! I hope this get's fixed as well. Painting high values would be a huge benefit when working on feature film stills.
  7. Dear Serif Team and Affinity Photo users, I'm a VFX Compositor & Matte Painter and I'd like to move from PS to AP. I hope you can help me with some questions regarding the Implementation and proper use of ACES and 32-bit. My background plate is exported from Nuke as an ACES - ACES2065-1 16-bit EXR file. The import into AP ( works fine - the file get's recognized as an ACES file and I get the same result using OCIO. But there are a few things I can't get my head around yet: How do I pick and paint high color values? Using the exposure slider in the 32-bit Preview I see that there are high values. If I pick and paint them back in, the result is way darker. (Changing the exposure doesn't effect the false picked color) picked in Nuke for comparison I moved from PS because there is a 16Bit limitation and I had to work with ACEScc files (log encoded) and use an ICC profile to check my work. I hoped to get around this using AP. Those threads are dealing with the same issue but the information is contradictory and I can't reproduce the method quoted first. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/49815-hdr-raw-pixel-values/ https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/19787--/ What is the proper workflow of importing and edit JPGs in an ACES setup in AP? Unfortunately there's no way of assigning an IDT during import (as in Nuke) but I can reproduce Nukes behavior with OCIO Adjustment Layers, which seams pretty inconvenient. (Windows Photo Viewer as comparison) Bottom left: Two OCIO nodes in sequence [ACES2056-1 to Utility - Curve - sRGB] followed by [Output - sRGB to ACEScg]. Bottom right: Two OCIO nodes in sequence [ACES2056-1 to Utility - Curve - sRGB] followed by [Utility - sRGB - Texture to ACEScg]. This post deals with the question of the right IDT for JPGs in general. I guess going the Utility - sRGB - Texture way is better, isn't it? My color settings: If you need further information or I haven't made my questions clear enough please don't hesitate to ask. I'm glad about any help or further learning resources! Thanks a lot
