Affinity RAW engine vs. Adobe RAW engine - and the winner is ...

Recommended Posts

... sorry to say - from my point of view - Adobe. Perhaps my fault, because I was not able to find the correct settings.

For both applications all automatic corrections were turned off.

a) Both images do not differ too much, the Adobe version is a little bit more vivid. The biggest difference is the spotlight at right. Just have a look at the spot the spotlight produces on the floor. Where there is still texture in the Adobe version, the Affinity version creates more or less a light spot.

b) Things get more dramatic, when coming to correction. With Adobe I used the Automatic correction, which looked "fairly" good for this underexposed image. Next I was trying to get the Adobe result and tried to translate the Adobe values to Affinity, but I never came close. Main problem I see here is how exposure works in Affinity. Where exposure is much more subtle in Adobe, you have to give a much higher value with Affinity to come near to same brightness.

So, what is my fault and how to prevent? Images are attached.
