  1. The tonemap persona leaves a visible seam if you tonemap any 360 HDR or HDRI panoramic image. Previous errors raised (6 month ago) got some reassurances that 360 and HDR handling would be improved but so far I can't see that. Anybody any idea if there are any plans to improve 360 handling? Cheers.
  2. Hi Affinity team. During the last days I tested the Windows version of Affinity Photo 1.5.1 and checked out those parts most important to me: RAW processing, HDR/Tone mapping and stitching Panoramas. (The video tutorials are great for newbies concerning your software.) I am happy to see all these features under a common hood and working reasonably well (although there are issues like the wrong histogram displayed in Develop persona which will refrain me from using Photo as default RAW software for now.) What I want to achieve: For years now I'm accustomed to create HDR images from a single RAW file instead a series of JPG or RAW files. The benefit is that there are no problems with motion (and thus ghosting) in the image, and no softness as a potential side-effect of the automatic alignment of handheld shots. Today's DSLR cameras create RAW images which can easily compensate 3 EV steps. (Depending on sensor size and ISO, the downside can be higher noise in dark areas, but that's acceptable for me.) My conventional approach is to develop 3-5 differently exposed JPG images (usually with different noise reduction settings) and then creating the HDR from these. This approach is very cumbersome with Affinity Photo, which does not even remember the RAW conversion settings I last used by default. Once a RAW file is developed, the Develop persona is closed and I have to start over for the next exposure. (In contrast to a dedicated raw converter like Canon's DPP or Nikon's NX-D where this is a no-brainer and easily done.) But maybe Affinity has a better approach? What if you could develop the raw file and apply a tone mapping without JPGs inbetween? Lets see, Photo Persona works in 32 bit, and RAW files can be developed to 32 bit HDR. Sounds promising. 1. I import the RAW file, disable applying the tone curve and leave the exposure-related settings untouched. 2. Then I put the developed 32 bit image into the Tone mapping persona -> Voilá, a developed HDR image. And what if I have a panorama of single RAW images which needs HDR processing? 1. You can start a "New batch job", select the RAW files to process and choose EXR as output format. 2. Then you can continue creating the panorama with "New panorama" and select the EXR files as shown in the HDR panorama video tutorial. 3. After the panorama has been stitched, it can be tone mapped in the Tone Mapping persona. Cool - this is a real time saver and more flexible regarding adjustments compared to my previous workflows which would mean first tone mapping every HDR image and then stitching the (hopefully equally exposed) JPGs together. Matthias.
  3. after processing 360 panorama (very good result!) I get always a vertical line at the joint of the image. it si not in the unprocessed panorama.. also color right and left from line is quite different. the line itself is removable applying inpainting brush tool in live projection -> equirectangular projection. question is how to get uniform color on both sides. if there is a better workaround than inpaint brush tool please tell ma. thx a lot! cris
  4. Hello from Hamburg, please help me to fix the following error: no panorama found no panorama found.bmp
  5. Hello, I am new to affinity, I have a macbook pro 2012, 2.9hz, 8g Ram, with mac os 10.15.1 catalina. I did a lot of panorama with lightroom, and try to do so with affinity. Must of my pictures are in RAW format, Affinity work well to do the preview, but when I ask to create the panorama, it is very long, and crash everything. Do I need to change affinity setting due the size format ? Please anyone help me, I had maybe 6 panorama waiting. You can see a exemple of my previous picture with lightroom.
  6. I miss the abillity to place photos into the panorama editor via drag and drop.
  7. Hello, I am having repeat difficulty rendering panorama's since latest update to 1.7.3.481 Continual repeat crash when rendering panorama's (regardless 50-350photos each) PC Specs: i5, 4670k, 4.1ghz (water cooled, temps under 75 Celcius when 100% cpu) 32gb DDR3 / 1600 (XMP 2400) Raid 0 2x1tb Windows/Program Raid 10 4x4tb (Source folder's) 4tb Spare drive (stand alone) RX590 8gb "fatboy series" AMD Video Card. 3x Benq 24" Displays (1920x1080). Windows 10 Latest updates. All drivers thoroughly up to date. Page file not on Raids, just the spare 4tb. Affinity Photo, i've set for 8, 16, or 24gb's (it uses upwards to 28gb's if I max it of the original ram, before page). Still same issue. Right now I have 4x "pano" source folders, (1,2,3, & 4). All Source files are JPG/ Taken by Samsung S8+ 13mp each I believe. Folder 1: 355 Jpegs, Total 2.19gb Folder 2: 310 Jpegs, Total 1.98gb Folder 3: 276 Jpegs, Total 1.53gb Folder 4: 116 Jpegs, Total 723mb (0.72gb ish) I've tried a catch all at once, toss them all in and see. What is found, then render. I've tried separately to just do folder 4, or 3, etc, smallest first I figured... It can get to the preview part, but when rendering... after a few hours the app fully exits/crashes. I've monitored on Task manager. The drive/memory/cpu and some GPU is used. I'm grasping at straws here. I have done the intel raid check. 0 errors entirely. I've defragged thoroughly. I've trimmed startup apps, scheduled tasks, etc. Literally minimized to maximized performance. I've even set priority of affinity photo to "above normal" I'll happily adjust or customize settings further if any theories help. I recognize panorama's take TIME. I know this thoroughly. I check back every few hours to see progress pro/con. If anyone has suggestions/idea's, hugely appreciated. What else is needed here to proceed/gain support, but proactively in the right direction? - RMLeLoup P.S. Thanks in advance for the thorough read. Edit: Updated version #, Edit 2: How do I get a "crash report" ? If needed, i'll attach, and upload samples if required also. (Have 185/185 fiber/unlim, happy to ts, don't mind)
  8. I was wondering at how I'd be able to recreate the content aware fill (on photoshop) shown in this video (at 1:45). Does affinity have something like this? I've tried using the inpainting brush tool, but could not really achieve a good result on a panorama I'm working on with AP (attached).
  9. Hi, I am trying to merge some photos (DNG files) as a panorama, the program (v1.7.3.481) completes the stitch step, I then press OK and it goes to rendering panorama and then the program drops out completely. There is plenty of memory as at the point of failure, the program is using a little over half the memory set as maximum (and is available) but it does seem to be a size limitation of some nature because if I reduce the number of files down it seems to work ok - there are 32 files and 16 (the first 16 or last 16) appears to work ok...not sure why I am hitting some limitation so any pointers appreciated. Crash report attached. Thanks 2786f01c-b006-4781-b9e6-453cf8e30d18.dmp
  10. Stitched and processed 5 HDR images shot with default camera app on my trusty iPhone 7 (I know, vintage!) in Affinity Photo for iPad... Got much better results this way than using the iPhone's built in panorama mode, which is very hard to get a straight horizon with....
  11. UPDATE: OOPS - THIS BELONGS IN PHOTO FORUM Just some quick notes on the New Panorama UI and related issues. I was trying to stitch a 10 image panorama. I had a very slow workflow. In the UI presented when tapping the button to select photos from Apple's Photos app, there is no option to deselect the square crop view; seeing the entire photo and its orientation helps identify which images to select. Currently it's not an intuitive process. Also, there seems to be quite a bit of unused space all around the "Images" list and "Panorama" list in the main Panorama UI, which forces one to excessively scroll on the left Images list while trying to decipher the tiny icons' orientation. Same for the Panorama preview list on the right, it is tiny as well. I'm working on an 11" iPad Pro with more limited real estate than the 12.9" Keep up the great work, the apps are incredible and you guys are trailblazing bringing desktop feature set to mobile device
  12. Amazed at the abilities of this software. Didn't even know that some of the abilites were even available in photo processing software
  13. Created in Affinity Photo Panorama and caption. Do you know the mountains? http://panorama.welling.ch/Z/rigi/rigi.html
  14. Why doesn't Affinity Photo Panorama Persona import .afphoto files?
  15. Hi, I have tried to make an HDR image from 3 equirectangular images ( 360x180 panorama - stitched from AutoPano ). Problem: I got a line on the final image due to a difference between the pixels from the left and right sides. Is there a way to tell Affinity that the image is a 360 pano, in ordre to force the pixels from left and right sides to share the same values? - for example, the same way Photomatix has a checkbox... - The funny thing, is that issue does not show up always... Any suggestion? Thank you.
  16. Howdy...still learning the finer details of Affinity Photo...I'm using 1.7.2.471 on Windows...trying to post a panorama on Instagram using the multiple sequential photo technique. Danged if I can figure out the guide system for nicely creating equi-distance widths so I can crop the wide pano down into multiple images. I'm hoping there's a nice way to setup the guides on the pano, then have Affinity Photo crop down the segments into their own individual files. Lots of video tutorials for PS on how to do this, and of course I do my work in Affinity. Image is set to 1350 height (max required by IG before they do their own resizing). Want to set up each width segment to 1080. Could someone share a quick step by step pretty please? I've been through the nicely done tutorials on the web site, this angle isn't covered anywhere. Thank you!
  17. I am trying to stitch 5 jpeg images and it just sits there with one thread maxxed out displaying "Loading 1 document..." in the title bar. Given the comparative speed with which I can stich 14 RAW files I am going to assume this is a bug.
  18. Hello everyone, I have tried so many different ways to import photos inside the Affinity Photo on the iPad in order to create a New Panorama. So I imported RAW, TIF, JPGs, from Cloud or local and none of these worked. I placed the photos in, pressed to Stich and blank. Is this a known issue? Thank you!
  19. Hey guys, I wanted to create a panorama with affinity because my raw converter (on1) lacks in terms of performance for big panoramas. Overall affinity does a really great and quickly job, but the panorama seems to be very unsharp against my version from on1. So I thought that in on1 maybe some automatic sharpening has happen before I even touch the raw. So I opened just one raw (out of the eight from the panorama) in affinity and I opened the same in the default preview app from MacOS. Again, Affinity is not as sharp as the unedited preview app. But this particular image detail was still clearly sharper in a single photo than in the rendered panorama. I know that I have several options for sharpening in Affinity, but how is it possible, that the raw file is so blurry? Do you think the default preview app in MacOS do also a automatic sharpening (and maybe other stuff) when I open a raw file? Enclosed I attach a screenshot from the single raw. On the left you can see the preview of MacOS and on the right the photo in Affinity. Since the sky on the left side is grainy, OSX actually seems to sharpen the preview of the raw file automatically, right? Thank you in advance. Greetings
  20. From two .jpg images a simple panorama should be created. After the merge I was able to crop the panorama. Then I wanted to add some corrections (cloning, re-imaging) and found that these tools and others are not available. Why not? Then I wanted to undo the cropping (CTRL + Z). That worked too, but now the picture is frozen: Any attempts to use a different tool or make an adjustment failed. I had to kill the program via the Task Manager. Aus zwei .jpg-Aufnahmen sollte ein einfaches Panorama erstellt werden. Nach der Zusammenführung konnte ich das Panorama noch beschneiden. Dann wollte ich noch einige Korrekturen anbringen (klonen, nachbelichten) und stellte dabei fest, dass diese Werkzeuge und auch andere nicht zur Verfügung stehen. Warum eigentlich nicht? Daraufhin wollte ich das Beschneiden rückgängig machen (STRG+Z). Auch das hat noch geklappt, aber jetzt ist das Bild eingefroren: Alle Versuche, ein anderes Werkzeug zu verwenden oder eine Anpassung zu machen, schlugen fehl. Ich musste das Programm über den Task-Manager beenden. Then came the query and I think it's good that there is this query. In this case I responded with "Cancel", whereupon the window was closed. Danach kam die Abfrage und ich finde es gut, dass es diese Abfrage gibt. In diesem Fall habe ich mit "Abbrechen" reagiert, worauf das Fenster geschlossen wurde. Then I restarted AP 1.7.2.414 Beta and again came a query. Also, I think that's very good, that not everything is lost after a chrash. Darauf habe ich AP 1.7.2.414 Beta neu gestartet und wieder kam eine Abfrage. Auch das finde ich sehr gut, dass nach einem Chrash noch nicht alles verloren ist. I responded with "ja =yes" and could easily continue working. I enclose the DMP-file with the crash-report. Darauf habe ich mit "ja" geantwortet und konnte problemlos weiter arbeiten. Die DMP-Datei mit dem crash-report füge ich bei. e7e90c9b-4f4a-43ff-90c2-7162d34d5204.dmp Grüße Guzzi
  21. Hi All, **For some reason the forum won't let me add a second image, I will clear cookies etc and try again** Currently testing Affinity Photo (Mac) via a ten day trial, just posting some queries on these forums before the trial expires, thanks for any help offered. Not sure if the screenshot shows it, but you can see little defects (like dark smudges) where Affinity has stitched images together. And when converting to black and white, the image looks very muddy, like there is no detail in the shadows of the mountain. When I do it in Lightroom, I have none of these issues and, while the image does require editing, out of the box it looks better and requires less work. I also disabled the option to auto apply changes in Lightroom, so that it would not auto adjust the image exposure settings. I hope the attached images shows what I have stated above. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks Iain
  22. Hi, I updated affinity photo (1.7), and since then each time I try to create a panorama I noticed some glitches in my pictures (Part of the picture are not aligned correctly...). Am'I the only one to notice this problem? Christophe
  23. I am new to the forums, but wanted to say a big THANK YOU to Affinity developers. I use to be a Photoshop user, but have now deleted Photoshop from my computer(s) and have decided to go solely with Affinity Photo. I have not been disappointed. I am especially thrilled with the Panorama function of Affinity, so much so that it has replaced Panorama Maker Pro 5.0 for me. It is a cleaner process and actually does a much better job of stitching very detailed images. The attached image was 6 photos, and it stitched this image 99% accurately. I did very little corrections, which is highly unusual for these type of panorama images. And I do a ton of them. So, just wanted to join the forum and share my experiences with Affinity software and the panorama feature. Thanks again. NOTE: This entire image was done using Affinity Photo, including the background and text. Logo's are used in accordance with fair use.
  24. Large panorama, trying to inpaint a relatively small missing section, I can semi-reliably (not every time but many times) get the app to (what looks like) loop allocating memory. The two times I tried to repro this in the beta the inpaint succeeded (different images) but this seems serious enough to offer up in case you want to verify. Affinity Photo 1.6.11 The project file is 6+GB so I'll wait for you to ask for it. :-D As a side note, this was another instance of the behavior that inspired this feature request:
  25. The intelligent stitching is awesome when it works -- though I've found a few cases where it doesn't, particularly when dealing with ambiguous cloud/sky in a multi-row layout or forest where treelines may be appear _very_ similar without more context. It would be awesome to have an option to see the proposed/determined layout prior to completing the stitching and be able to manually change the proper ordering (drag the image(s) to define where in the overall layout they belong).
