Hi- I'm a cinematographer and I just bought Affinity based on the fact that it offers video-style waveform and vector scopes. That's huge for me as I often shoot stills as proof-of-concepts for commercial shoots and I need to quickly manipulate them to show to a client and director, and no other stills program (or at least none that I'm aware of) has exposure controls that allow me to evaluate and correct exposure and color so easily and consistently across photos. But: The vectorscope layout is whacked. Red should be at the top around 11:30. Blue should be roughly at 3:00. Green should be around 7:00. There should be a line (the "I" line) that falls between red and yellow and makes for a perfect flesh tone target. Default gain should be 2x (or 200%). I've attached an image showing what a proper vectorscope should look like. I consult and teach training courses for DSC Labs, who make the Chroma Du Monde HD test charts, so I've done a lot of work with waveform/vectorscopes both as a cinematographer and as a tech guru. Feel free to get in touch if I can help out in correcting this. Thanks.
The vectorscope is mapped incorrect. Functionally it works but the mapping of colors is wrong. It is minor but frustrating since you cant gauge the colors at a glance since it is different from every other piece of software that has a vectoscope that uses the industry standard. A skin line at 123deg would also be very much appreciated. This is how it should be mapped:
