    Turbo stuck in 1.7

    Updated 1.7 ok working fine, 3 days on the trot. keep experiencing lag, using iPad Pro 4 gigs of ram. 163D1D5D-CF9F-444E-83E1-0376B452E117.MP4
  2. Hello, I've recently discovered Affinity as an alternative to Photoshop, Illustrator. I was looking to replace it at work and rather than paying £50 a month for CC, I can pay £50 for the software. I've been using it on my Mac at work and it's been an absolute dream to work with. In fact when it comes to working with large PSD's I've found it performs better than Photoshop. However, Windows is a very different story, it's so sluggish. My computer is very powerful, i7, 8GB RAM and AMD R9 Fury. When moving layers there is a second delay before it actually moves, when applying Adjustments there is a second delay before it updates. It makes the application unusable as I feel like I'm fighting with it to get it to move layers, sometimes it's so delayed I get lost in the layering system. Adding a layer inside a layer (nesting) takes about 2-3 seconds. Moving layers feel sluggish, just everything feels slow. I haven't tried Affinity Designer yet, however the slowness of Affinity Photo on Windows 10 is stopping me from moving from CC as I use a Windows at home and Mac at work.
  3. Hello everyone, I'm having an issue where both Affinity Designer and Photo stay at "Not Responding" for about 3 minutes when starting up the program and THEN it opens fully. Basically it is super slow to open. This is a clean install as I just bought the software and there's nothing else running on the PC and the PC is still new and running well so it's clearly a problem with the software. I already tried changing the performance options (Renderer to the dedicated GPU instead of the iGPU which is the default for some reason. Also tried WARP). As for how well the program runs once it opens it's, meh, it runs jerky, zoom animations are slow and panning is super slow (This is NOT 60fps as advertised, more like 5fps) BUT if I use the touchscreen it works quite well, much better than the touchpad. I tried the software on a Mac and it was amazing but on Windows it kinda sucks so far. My Specs are: Windows 10 Home (1903 / 18362.145) Intel i7-8550U RAM 16GB iGPU: Intel UHD Graphics 620 dGPU: Nvidia MX150 EDIT: It appears that panning and zoom have improved somewhat! But sadly it still takes super long to start and still says "Not responding".
  4. When I’m using design and use .. welll anything. It’s very very very slow or keeps crashing on me. It’s its slow I can’t even use the app,at this time
  5. Hi, I have lots of fonts and it slows down the startup of Affinity Photo and designer, because every time it is loading all fonts. Is there anything I can do to speedup things besides deleting fonts? Regards & Thanks, David
  6. Just fired up beta 1.7.0.11 and had a go at opening a kids book I'm illustrating - which now opens in this beta (the prev beta 1.7.0.10 would always bomb after around 10mins trying to open the file) :- OK I can live with designer taking 9mins to open the file when 1.7.0.7 would open in around 4 or 5mins for the same artwork, but now the redraw is just painfully slow to the point it's un-usable, I know that beta 1.7.0.8 and 9 were having problems with complex vectors when snapping was switched on and would lock up for around 5 mins if you tried to move anything by dragging (using the arrows worked fine) but this is far worse I think the last time I did any work on the book was in 1.7.0.7 and it was a little slow maybe, but now the same file seems to be 10 times slower and virtually un-workable - I can't see it being a ram issue as I have 48gb with a massive chunk assigned to designer - the previous book in the series is super nippy and is just ascomplex with more pages and takes around a minute to open and was put together in the last app store version 1.6.1 see the attached vids for speed comparison com.apple.AVKit.Share-2F7C8C51-448C-44DB-8315-A260FFD2FFD3.mov Fast.mov
  7. The brushes on the RC2 are working but on screen its all very slow. I use a Intuos CTH-480 for a smooth working I need a mouse. If choose a brush the whole thing is slowing down. But what I use are PS brushes. The vector brushes from Frankandtoon are working smooth with the pen.
  8. I just purchased a new iPad Pro and bought Affinity Design and Affinity Photo. When creating images in Design, anytime I merge layers (using either merge down or merge visible), the program crashes and loses my latest work. Help!
  9. Hello! Affinity Designer on mac for a very long time. I liked everything. Now I installed Affinity Designer on Windows. And I cry with bloody tears, I don’t understand why such “delays” are “glitches”. The canvas moves smoothly, but all panels (for example, layers, stroke) work very slowly, especially if they are “disconnected” from the interface. It is also difficult to move the panels, jerks and delays. By the way, in beta version 1.7 there are almost no such problems, everything works smoothly. Except for the layers panel PC configuration: intel i7-9800X CPU@3.80GHz GPU 1080 Ti 32g RAM Windows 10 pro Affinity Designer version 1.6.5.135 (downloaded from site) Can this problem be fixed?
  10. Hi all, i started to open a small psb (because the other i'll have to open are 20gb) and i'm waiting for 30m now. i dont know if or how you can help me but here goes: my settings: started at 09h42m. grabbed memory and seems like writing on c drive. my v drive is a ssd and has the memoryswap and i can see no action there by 09h47m still consistent by 10h00 the memory usage lowers a lot by 10h10 goes up a bit now it is 10h15m and the memory is at 8.5gb dont know if this speed is normal but i was not expecting to wait half hour (so far) for this. i'll be back to the pc in an hour or so and see how it goes but it is bothering me because i have 5 psb files to merge thank you for your help and time.

  11. It takes over 20-30 minutes to enter tone mapping or develop persona. In general performance is painfully slow although my laptop is well above the recommended specs. I'm on an i7-7700HQ 2.8ghy proccesor, Nvidia GeForce 1050ti with 4GB, 16GB of DDR4 ram, and affinity is on a an SSD hard drive. I've tried switching all options under the performance tabs, but nothing seems to help. Would really appreciate some help as the program is currently unusable for me.
  12. Hello, I'm experiencing a poor graphics performance after upgrading to Mojave, tried switching from OpenGL to Metal, which didn't do a trick and then switched back. Are anyone experiencing similar sluggishness? And maybe somebody can tell me ways to work around it? Thank you!
  13. I just overlay two small images (4KB and 4MB) and trying to drag the smaller one. I have deleted the app and reinstall from the APP store again. Any help would be appreciated! Please see the attached for my system setup. I have also tried different Display settings and those didn't help either.
  14. If I am applying "high pass filter" and want to mask certain content from the effect of the filter, I invert the mask but the Icon of the filter does not "black out" when I apply "Invert" by presing "Ctrl+I" , however the effect of inversion is visible on the picture. Now If I pick the white brush and paint some areas to reveal the effect of the mask ... nothing happens. What is going wrong here?

    SLOWWW Zoom

    Zooming with the Brush tool selected — in a tiny 726 KB file — is super slow on the latest beta. If I switch to the arrow tool everything is normal. I'm using a Magic Mouse and the option key in conjunction with the scroll gesture to zoom.
  16. Hi Guys, I've recently bought both versions of the software Photo and Designer, great software and I decided to use this and begin the slow drop off from Adobe Products. So in having said this.... one place this needs improvement is loading time. Sorry but it's too long to load, it's almost if not longer than a full blown copy of Illustrator or Photoshop in loading time. Both installs of equivalent Adobe offerings are double the size in install size and theoretically should take longer to load but they don't. I believe that they probably have more optimised codebase. I am finding it frustrating that I feel I need to keep a copy of Photo and Designer open the whole time so that if I need to load an asset it loads quickly... but if the programs are closed and I want to open them it really does take a long time.... almost frustratingly slow. I have a good spec machine also Alienware 16GB, i7 4th Gen 512GB SSD Something needs to be done, please optimise the startup times so that we can get to work quicker and not have to wait so long for startup times... Looking forward to a bright future.
  17. Hej there, I am using an i7 Skylake with an GTX950M and 16GB RAM, still I get very very slow panorama and HDR renderings from Canon CR2 files. At the same time, very little CPU capacity is used (~15-20 %). Tonemapping panoramas takes easily a complete afternoon! I would love to see an performance upgrade in future versions (even if I have to pay for it). Otherwise, Affinity Photo is close to irreplacable as the generated images are excellent. Even the output using the default settings is much better than for example Aurora HDR, imho. Sincerely, Benedikt

    Over using CPU

    Just moving items around page uses up to 80% of my cpu and really slows the software down the pc is almost new i have asked a friend with a 6600k and his does the same thing but uses a little less 65-70% with the same file (i sent him the one in vid). PC Specs 7700k 16gb 3200mhz ddr4 gtx 1080 asus tuff mark 1 z270 Anyone else have this trouble or know a fix for it. 2017-11-10_11-20-26.flv
  19. Does anyone know of any issues being reported when using Affinity Photo's Extensions within Apple Photos? I've just started to use Affinity within Photos for quick edits, and have found a couple of issues that make it unreliable: Affinity Retouch: Loupe slider controls do not appear immediately and start as a purple drop down box. the sliders ultimately appear but disappear most times. The Loupe often does not appear and instead the mouse pointer remains, (functioning as the selected tool, i.e. dodge or burn). The Loupe can be forced to appear by zooming in and out, but often disappears as soon as the mouse is moved to click on a spot. Affinity Develop: Intermittently opens with a black screen displaying the Affinity logo, and will not display the current photo. Equipment: Computer: MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015), 16GB RAM, Solid state drive. OS: macOS High Sierra version 10.13.6 Photos: Version 3.0 (3291.13.210) Affinity: Ver 1.6.7 No Other Apps running. MacBook passes all tests. No other known issues with the MacBook
  20. Does anyone else have issues with the speed of Affinity Photo. My desktop with i5 chip, 8gb ram & Nividia graphics [1gb dedicated ram] hardly ever keeps me waiting in Photoshop. Affinity Photo is frustratingly slow. 24mp RAW file takes over 10 seconds to load. Develop mode takes almost as long to complete, & flattening the image from 5-10 layers takes several seconds, which is virtually instantaneous in PS. This makes it a frustrating experience! In addition, if you use any of the tools, as soon as you release the mouse, it processes your action [ slowly!]. This means, for example, if you use the selection brush & want to select a second area, you have to wait while it processes the first area. Sorry, but for a program which has received so much advertising hype, this just doesn't cut it.

    UI loading very slow

    Great product, first of all! 1. On my computer, every time I start up APub it takes about 30 secs to load the UI. 2. More annoying: Opening the "Character", "Paragraph" or "Text Styles" tab for the first time takes up to 10 secs, each. I have about 350 installed fonts. My Specs: Affinity Publisher 1.7.0.57 WIN 10 Home, 64-bit i5-7300HQ 16 GB RAM GTX 1050ti 4GB WIN, Fonts and APub installed on SSD
  22. Hey guys, I was working on this vector file that I downloaded from iStock and it has a lot of curves and points. However, when I open the EPS file in Affinity Designer or even copy the vector objects from Illustrator to Affinity Designer, moving the objects in Affinity Designer is very slow and I constantly get a spinning wheel for basically moving an object. There's no issue doing just that in Illustrator though. What is up with that? I'm on spec'd out iMac and it's definitely not a hardware issue. Is Affinity not able to handle documents with lots of curves and path? I've attached my Affinity Designer file. My settings for performance is attached as well. Thanks!

  23. What sort of speed should I expect from Affinity Designer? I am used to running Xara Designer Pro 9, which zips along, rarely lagging. Affinity Designer is nowhere near this smooth. See this video for a demonstration of performing similar actions in each application. Notice in AD the zoom takes 4 or 5 seconds to render, where it is instant in Xara. Also while typing the text takes a second or more to render in AD while it keeps up with the cursor in Xara. I understand that the two programs use different methods, but with AD acting this choppily it is almost unusable - even to move a few basic vectors around the screen is painful! I can't work out where the bottle neck lies. I have watched the GPU and CPU graphs both in Windows task manager and using MSI After Burner. I can't get CPU usage of more than 50% nor GPU usage grater than 45% despite the program hanging for seconds at a time as the display struggles to update. My system specs are in my signature. This is by no means a cutting edge machine, but generally handles what I throw at it quite nicely. Judging by the tutorial video I've watched this performance is not normal?! What should I try to remedy the situation?
  24. I have been using Affinity Photo since beta and have recently run into a problem with performance. I noticed this slightly at the beginning of this year and it has become worse as the year has gone on. Once I reach a certain number of layers (7-9) or apply a specific layer adjustment (such as motion blur) it begins to excessively use my cpu. This causes large slow downs and forces me to try and find alternative methods of editing in Affinity. I tried reinstalling without success and have the latest version of all software. I was wondering if anyone else has run into this and/or has a solution. I have attached an image as an example. Once I added the motion blur, the cpu usage skyrocketed. I am using a 2017 MacBook Pro (regret buying) with 16gb ram. 2.9 GHz Intel Core i7 Radeon Pro 560 4096 MB Intel HD Graphics 630 1536 MB
  25. Using AP 1.6.4.104 on Win10 Pro 64-bit (build 17134.228), running 32GB on AMD Ryzen 5 1600 six-core at 3.20GHz) I was learning from your tutorials and when learning about masking when I used the Flood Seletion tool, AP appeared to stall with the message of "Not Responding" at the top of the screen. Can't believe I don't have enough memory, so what could it be. Only AP and Firefox (v.61.0.2, 64bit) are running. Any thoughts???
