I really like Affinity Photo (AP) most of the time; HOWEVER, the super slow loading/processing of RAW files is a real bummer. Maybe this doesn't apply to Canon and Nikon RAW format BUT loading Sony RX10 III/IV and A7R II RAW files is a show-stopper. In fact it is so slow I've gone back to preprocessing RAW files to TIF format in Lightroom then loading the TIF files to AP. The result is a saving of 15-30 minutes for 10+/- RAW files!! Lightroom, Photoshop and OnOne load RAW files almost instantaneously. What is Affinity Photo doing that causes it to essentially stall!? Crashes: The above process (RAW processing) is also one of most common causes of crashes in Affinity Photo, i.e.: no error messages, AP simply goes away! Environment: Lenovo YOGA 910 Windows 10 Pro i7 CPU 16GB RAM 1TB SSD
Techworks Pro posted a topic in Affinity on Desktop Questions (Mac and Windows)Recently announced image sensors by Canon in their newly introduced 5d MK4 series use a sensor called dual pixel and results in a dual image output available and called DPR (Dual Pixel Raw). My question for Affinity Photo users: has anyone experimented with this raw file? How does AP (Affinity Photo) handle it, either for HDR or micro-focus compensation, ghosting or otherwise taking advantage of its capabilities in image processing? There is a Canon utility designed to break this out for processing and other apps designed to split the file into two versions of the same image for HDR use. The magazine DPR and others have some comments about this new imager and camera. I've just started playing around with the camera's capabilities (awesome and looking to AP for some unique processing ideas. For stitching DPR-enabled images from this camera, what is the recommended practice? I did this is Lightroom very quickly and would like some suggestions in trying it likewise in AP. Lightroom uses a stack (grouping of pictures) whereby each member of the stack can be separately processed, then combined and stitched. Is the method the same in AP? Is there a suggested workflow?

Red recently released a Photoshop plugin to enable importing R3D stills into Photoshop. I installed it in Affinity, and so far no dice; I'm hoping that this can be addressed so that I can import Red Raw stills into Affinity Photo for editing.
