Firstly, let me start by saying two enormous positives about your Gaussian Blur: 1. It's a fucking sexy blur. And the Preserve Edges feature being right there.. THANK YOU!!!! 2. The logarithmic scaling (or whatever it is) you have is damn near perfect. Now, the problem. If working with a big image, the fact that it's constantly trying to update, live, becomes a little problematic because it reduces the accuracy a user can find/feel/flow to with the slider. There are two solutions. Adobe's way: Which is to put in a slight delay after any and all slider moment before attempting to do the blurring. Affinity's way, + a Shortcut to temporarily restrain the Live Update of the Blur processing, at which point it behaves like Adobe's, with a little extra time before attempting to blur. Perhaps 0.25 of a second more delay. Might only need to be 0.1 or 0.2 of a second. Won't know until we feel it. Now, where to put such a shortcut? I strongly suggest the CapsLOCK key, as this is what's used in After Effects to "power down" live updates, and it makes nearly perfect sense, because it can be activated and then deactivated, and the signal can be received by the app.
