  1. I'm using Photo version 1.7, Desinger 1.7 for Mac. I had a question when looking at the GPU settings for these settings (performance). My graphic card is AMD Radeon RX580. This display state differs between Photo and Designer. Display is grayed out in Photo. Metal is displayed. Of course I can't choose. However, in the case of Designer, I can select Display and change to software or OpenCL. Which behavior is correct? --- Photo, Designer 1.7, macOS 10.14.5
  2. hi there. at first, sorry for my poor English. I want to change the app for photo. thus I picked APh up. I have heard it is so great app instead of adobe's one. however, [no compatible GPU] on my MBP(2017 / 15") gonna make me sad. maybe with out gpu accelariton, i can't handle my d810 raw and jpeg files. in fact, without it, it perform terribly!!! what is the reason that my APh can't find GPU?

    100% CPU usage

    Hello. I noticed this problem with Affinity Photo desktop, which means that even with a few layers on certain operations (or even just the use of the brush), CPU usage goes up a lot (up to 100%) and the software becomes very slow and crashes even sometimes. I also noticed from the management that the GPU does not seem to be used much, although it is correctly set in the settings. I have already tried to reinstall the software and also to completely format the PC. Below is a list of computer specifications: -Windows 10 -i7 6700K 4.00 GHz -16 GB DDR4 RAM -NVIDIA GTX 1060 3GB I usually work on files up to 5000x5000 pixels at 300 dpi and I do photomanipulation work. In my recent work on AP it seems like I couldn't use too many layers and this limited my work a lot. Previously I worked on Photoshop so I know the problem should not be with my hardware. Thank you :-)
  4. Congrats on latest 1.7 betas, great upgrades! One thing to consider: would it be possible to add a checkbox in the Performance tab in the apps' Preferences to switch between using the discrete GPU when plugged in to the power adapter and to use the integrated GPU when running on battery power when running affinity on laptops? Kinda like MacOS energy saver system prefs.... thanks for all you do
  5. Hello I understand Affinity Photo can benefit from the usage of a GPU, I have an Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M since it's a laptop. My question is, to ascertain that software does is working with the GPU, should I select the GPU selection in the Affinity Photo Preference Menu in the Performance Tab?, should I assign it directly in the Nvidia control panel? or should I do both things? Thank you
  6. Hey Everyone, Just wanted to see if anyone else has experience any issue with Affinity Photo and on Wacom Mobile Studio Pro? I am running the top spec model and seem to be getting a flicking black screen when doing simple tasks such as mask selection and painting. I know that most will say that this has to be a hardware issues given Wacom recent track records and the mountains of complains. However, after some heavy testing and benchmarking, I can not recreate this issue in any other program including all of Adobe's product line. To be clear, the screen does not become unresponsive; it simply turns off and then back on... for example if am painting a section masks and the screen flickers during the stroke, the stroke will be completed properly. Seems that there maybe an issue with how AP/AD is talking to the the GPU; I know that in Substance Painter I had to make and adjustment in regedit to prevent GPU hangs on Nvidia cards. List of Programs I tested with no issues: All done with same 2 million polygon model ZBrush - Polypaint,BPR,Sculpting, General 3DCoat - PBR Rendering, Sculpting Blender - Sculpting, Viewport Rendering, Cycles Render Photoshop - 8 Example from the Affinity Photo Workbook Core Skills sections Substance Painter - Rendering, PBR Maramoset Toolbag3 - Rendering Unity Adam Demo Fire strike Benchmark Unigine Haven There are more...but nothing in the above list had any issue running large or even the same files Any advice would be helpful because at the moment, Affinity Photo is useless to me on this machine. Thanks
  7. Hi (Bonjour), I’m currently use a brand new iMac 5K 27 mid-2017 4.2 Ghz 32 Go RAM, latest High Sierra updates. The video card is a Radeon Pro 580 8192 Mo VRAM. I’m using Affinity Photo 1.6.7. What are the performance settings to get the fastest user experience with this iMac? Under DISPLAY: What to choose: Software, OpenGL (basic), OpenGL or Metal ? Should I use only integrated graphic GPU? Despite all my tests, I get constant similar performance with OpenGL or Metal or use GPU only? And the internal fan kick in very often. My Late 2012, top end iMac 27 doesn’t do worst. Does Affinity Photo is really optimized for Metal 2 ? FCP X rendering is two time faster on iMac 5K 2017. Thank you Michel
  8. There seems to be a bug in AD that causes some calculation or rendering to get stuck in an infinite loop, with nothing but a simple SVG with few paths and no complicated features, AD will be taking up ~50% of the available GPU while doing absolutely nothing (and even minimized). I've been noticing this problem since AD 1.5, and currently can reproduce it in the latest 1.6.1 release (which isn't to say that it didn't happen pre-1.5, of course). The only possible factor I could think of is that I've only ever seen it on high-dpi devices (with a non-100%/96dpi configuration), but I'm not sure if that's just a coincidence or not. This happens on multiple PCs with different makes and models of graphics cards (Intel, nVidia, and AMD) so it's not a GPU driver issue. Is there some sort of logging that can be enabled that would help track this down?

  10. Hey guys, I have a question regarding the performance of Affinity Designer using only a CPU. Working with large and complex files, really slows down my AD and im wondering if a graphics card would solve that problem, so I thought maybe i ask you guys here with more experience. My current specs are the following: Windows 10 Pro 64bit Intel i7-7700 @ 3.60 GHz 32GB RAM AD Version 1.5.3.69 So my AD is currently running only over the CPU and I thought maybe adding a GPU would increase the performance but after reading some topics in this forum I became a bit sceptical if this would improve my performance. Is it true that a GPU would only have a little impact on my experience? Or are these problems generally existent in the windows version? Unfortunatly I can't provide a example file due to corporate privacy guidelines.
  11. Hello, I'm looking into a possible upgrade for my system and I was thinking to left the GPU out of it becauseI have an amd radeon 7850 1GB and it is still a good enough GPU (entry for gaming, but still strong overall). But since I don't know how and how much does affinity utilize the GPU I'm not sure if this is the right way to go, or should I upgrade my GPU with the rest of the system? Does it matter for affinity? (as far as I'm consern 7850 is close to a more modern radeon 460, so I have to get a GPU from 470 and above to make any difference)
  12. Hi, i would like to know witch settings are the best : OpenGL only, Open GL and Integrated GPU or Integrated GPU only? What are the differences? 'Cause, i'm having some performance issues with objects that have thousands of nodes. Thx. Ben
  13. Affinity Designer 1.5.4 Mac 10.12.1 Graphic Card: GT650M & Graphics 4000 It never happened before. After unplugged or plugged in an external monitor, all the canvas will turn black. Happens all the time. The computer is always on the GT650M, so might not be a graphic card issue. Screenshot:
  14. Photographer and computer nerd here - How does Affinity Photo process information? While making edits to raw files in the "Develop Persona", I've noticed the fans of my 2012 Retina MacBook Pro spin up like jet engines. Does Affinity Photo rely heavily on CPU speed/RAM speed or is it heavily multithreaded? Does more cores = faster responses to adjustments? or do faster clock speeds lead to faster responses? I am curious because (as I said before) my 2012 rMBP is beginning to show its age when editing the raw files I give to the Develop Persona and, with the advent of the newer MBPs, I was hoping to get an idea of what machine would be best to purchase to get the best performance with the smallest form factor without emptying my wallet completely
  15. Hi Affinity team, I don't know what is the best set-up (Designer and Photo) to use with my hardware : MacBook Pro 9,1 - i7 2,6Ghz - 8Go Ram - nVidia GeForce GT650M 1Go + Intel HD4000 OSX El Capitan 10.11.6 I don't find any informations to understand what could be the best preferences I've to select for my kind of hardware. For the moment I've selected both and I got less "ventilation panic", but is it the best thing to do ? According to me, there is a lack of information on some options in the prefs. panels. Thanks by advance for your answers.
  16. hey guys, like many others, i am following the Affinity software with great intrest. I work daily in Photoshop (heavy photo manipulation with high ress photo's and a lot of layers, brushes, filters, etc) and Illustrator (cartoon logos). Soon, i am going to leave the Mac platform and move over to Windows for a better hardware configuration. With the good news that Affinity is working on a Windows release. So maybe, i will be a part of this family! I am planning my new configuration for a long time now and my focus at this moment is a fast i7-6 core (5820k), 64gb mem, M2 SSD + SSD for scratch only, and a very fast GPU (GTX 980ti) for all kind of processes like live preview / rendering in adobe premiere and after effects. Photoshop does benefit from Cuda as well. I am not sure if Illustrator uses Cuda for zooming and panning. My question for Affinity is: 1) Is there any GPU support in Photo and Designer, if yes, is this OpenCL based or is there CUDA involved? 2) what is the sweet spot in cores? I know Photoshop has an sweet spot of 6 cores. 3) Is Affinity a memory hungry tool? I am planning 64gb of memory. kind regards, Roy
  17. Hi - excited to try out my preview copies of the Affinity products in the next couple days - two quick questions.... This first one is probably obvious once I install the aps, but I'll ask anyway: is there full support in the Photo Ap for Wacom pen tablets (pressure and tilt)? Next question - It has been a year and a half now that I have waited for Adobe to give dual video card support in their GPU preferences... I have a Mac Pro with dual video cards but Photoshop only uses the VRAM from one of the cards - not both - so basically late 2013/14 Mac Pro owners have one dormant video card in terms of VRAM. Do the Affinity apps take advantage of all the VRAM available on the New Mac Pro dual video cards? (so far that I know, only Final Cut Pro takes advantage of this). Thank you for the answers. Jeff
