  1. So here I am again. It seems that when I export my newly created files and open them in another program, app, or website, the color is not consistent with what i'm seeing in Affinity. Specifically it looks like the hue has shifted a bit green and some contrast has been pulled. This isn't the first time I've had export issues. I've had issues with sending images to print that the color was also inconsistent. I chalked it up to incompatible file format between mine and the print shops software (adobe). I use my native RAW format of 16 bit and adobe rgb 1998 as it is strait out of camera. However now my export settings are to use the existing formats. The files still appear different. Any input/ suggestions.
  2. Realized this... It's ok, Just finished the overclock last night... running at 4.1 mhz on the cpu
  3. I am trying to create a composite image consisting of 26 RAW .nef files. The issue I'm having is that when I create a new stack job I'm losing a lot of dpi. The files are native 6000 x 4000 pixels at 300 dpi. When I stack them all together in a batch the dpi drops to 92 dpi. I'm printing this image to 60x40 inches so i need to squeeze as much resolution out as possible. I'm still relatively new to Affinity so i'm sure that there is a setting that i'm missing. Until I get a solution, my temp fix is going to be to develop and save each image individually as a .tiff then load them all as a new stack... not the most efficient fix but at least it'll keep me moving... I'm getting the feeling that there's not a lot of light painters that use this software. Thanks in advance for the help.
  4. I'm sorry about the upload quality. That was my first youtube vid. It recorded in 4K. I'm not sure why it is only in 360p. Just tried the flow and although it was very jittery it seemed to work. Thank you. The jitters may be coming from the fact that it is nearly a 5gb working file.
  5. @walt.farrell @Old Bruce So I was going to type out a lengthy clarification of the issues that I was having but decided on a video walk through instead. Unlisted video link: https://youtu.be/mS-Q2t_sUQA
  6. I am attempting to load .nef files into a stack then load them into the photo persona to edit each image individually as a layer. When i get them all loaded as layers, I cannot perform simple edits such as paint brush or erase. Even adding layer masks seems to do nothing. The only manipulation I can manage is the clone tool. I thought at first that it was because of having to develop the raw files but i have the same issue when loading images as .jpeg files in the stack. I've followed the steps layed out in your tutorial videos but they don't exactly conform to the technique i use for composite light painting images. Without diving too deep into my process, I stack the images then either paint or erase out my lighting as necessary. I'm a relatively new user coming, I must be missing something. The attached image is a flattened version of my raws. There's gold in there, I'm just trying to set it free, please help.
