  1. Hello, I recently purchased your software as all the videos showed how well it works for astrophotography. I was particularly impressed with how fast your stacking process was in your videos. However, each time I use your Astrophotography Stacking process, once I hit stack the whole programme just crashes. I left the programme alone for over an hour. Not even Deep Sky Stacker takes that long. This is deeply disappointing and contrasting to what your videos demonstrate. My laptop has a i7 quad core processor too so it's not exactly slow or lacking power. Please can you provide me with support on this issue? I have attached a screenshot here (using my phone as I can't grab a screenshot due to your programme crashing every time).
  2. Hello, I've imported around 15 photos to Affinity Photo into the Astrophotography mode. On most of these photos there is some satellites/meteor trails, but they are gone after stacking. Is it that Affinity is so good at removing them or does it simply reject these frames ? Also is it possible to see the total exposure time after stacking ? Thanks
  3. Hi, In the Arrange menu, there's an item "Align Layers By Stars". I've seen this function available and working, if I have a document where the layers stem from the Astrophotography Stack. When I created a new image from TIFFs which contain stacked images (e.g. as the result from Deep Sky Stacker), this menu item is not available. I don't understand why? Thanks in advance! Björn
  4. Hi, I am using Affinity Photo extensively for my Deep Sky Astrophotography workflow. I have a new camera that has a bit depth of 12. The FITS files created aren't scaling the 12 bit to 16 bits, i.e., the maximum brightness value is 4095 and never 65535. How is the Astrophotography Stacking tool processing these files? For comparison: in Deep Sky Stacker, I need to define a scaling factor of 16 so that the very dark images are lighter and stars being correctly identified. Thanks in advance! Björn
  5. When adding images to the Stacking Persona in Windows 10, selecting a folder and clicking “Open”, opens the folder. It does not add all the files in the folder to the selected file type. This was as shortcut described in a tutorial that was using a Mac. Is this a Mac only shortcut?
  6. Hello, I updated Affinity Photo today from 1.9 to 1.9.1 With 1.9 the Astrophotography Stack feature just crashes and didn't work at all. With 1.9.1 the Astrophotography Stack feature is incredibly slow. I have taken a screenshot of the status bar after 30mins. I'm only stacking a small number of frames consisting of: Lights frames = 22 x 4min @ ISO500 Darks = 17, Bias = 50, Flats = 50. All frames are CR3 Raw files. My laptop is an i7 quadcore so it's not exactly slow. My complaint is that your YouTube videos show the Astrophotography Stack feature completing the processing in seconds. Can you address why you have made advertising videos showing this feature working so quickly when the reality is extremely different? This seems really disingenuous and is false advertising. If you're going to sell a product with a feature like this then it should definitely outperform free products such as Deep Sky Stacker, which can complete the stacking process much quicker. I would really appreciated hearing from an Affinity developer on this issue.
