I have applied a BW adjustment to the vector layer. If you try to copy the layer (CMD+C) , Photo crashes immediately. With the BW adjustment turned off, it does not crash. (Photo 1.8.4 • MacOS 10.15.6 • iMac Pro) NOTE: you might need to deselect and select again the vector layer before it crashes EDIT: I could not reproduce this on my 16-inch 2019 MBP EDIT: I could not reproduce this on my 15-inch 2012 MBP (Retina) crash-on-vector-layer-copy.afphoto
Resolved: Can confirm 188.8.131.524RC2 has full control over noise removal, especially chroma noise (working since recent betas: thank you so much), and is fully usable now on Sigma Merrill cameras. Also, only as of 404RC2 is EXIF and focus reliably consistent. Outstanding: BW images still open as colour: no benefits from in-camera BW captured images. Additionally, some BW images shot at higher than base ISO open like linear exposure (super dark). Quick test images (apologies for quality): 6745, ISO100, BW: in 184.108.40.2067 and .404RC2 has EXIF and focus info, but recent prior betas were partially missing EXIF & focus metadata. In all versions, these open as colour (should be BW). 6742, ISO800, BW: Very difficult trying to extract a workable image from these RAWs (shot higher than base ISO). Opens fine in other RAW editors. Why Not Use Normal Colour to BW (Post-processing Conversion): The key issue behind this is that the Foveon Merrill can capture the full spectrum at every single 'pixel' (photosite), and output it in BW (like a Leica M Monochrom). No demosaicing is required (or ever wanted). When these are shot as BW in the camera, Affinity Photo opens them as normal colour images, and loses all their benefits. For instance, Foveons also normally capture full spectrum at every 'pixel', and when all treated as BW, you can get 3 times as much sampling per pixel as the monochrome Leica, for improved noise.

BW Images still open as colour, and even if converted to BW, lose all the Foveon benefits. There's two ways to obtain BWs from Foveon RAWs, and neither works. Similar crops below from the same image, all at 200% zoom (slight variations in cropping).
