Affinity Photo - How is CR3 RAW conversion with Apple/Mac

Recommended Posts

Hi - I'm in the process of switching from Windows to Mac and shoot on an EOS R, which I don't think is yet supported in the stable release. Mac's have raw conversion built in, and I know Affinity can use that feature. How is the conversion with the OS converters compared to the ones that are released with Affinity? Thanks!

Apples own RAW conversion engine is often better and also more up-to-date. - Affinity's own RAW conversion engine relies on third party code (libraw) and thus depends on that for supporting cam models (the same applies for the used lensfun database). - However, you can try out for yourself (for the EOS R) with a APh Mac tryout version running under macOS Mojave and Catalina.
