As a capture one user, I am having trouble smoothly integrating AP into my workflow. I can easily export a tiff file and have AP open it for editing. However, when I finish, there does not seem to be a way to safe the file in a manner that C1 recognizes. A "save" write an AP file. "Export" writes a file but C1 doesn't pick up on it. So far I have to export the file as a tiff or jpg, then import it back into C1. This is a real pain since I have to retype the name the folder in C1 to put the edited film into carefully or the image will end up in the wrong place.

 

Any way to make this work smoothly, like I assume it would for LR or Aperture?

Hi Steve,

 

Not had experience with C1 but you assume correctly with LR/Aperture which I have installed and work fine for me. I know there are some guys on here who use C1 so maybe the'll be able to help.

Hi Steve - I'm getting the same problem - only occasionally Capture One won't read a TIF saved from AP even when I try to important it 'manually' - there's just a black box in the browser and Capture One says 'generating a preview - Less than a minute left' - only the previrew never appears. Looking forward to AP sorting this out!!

There is actually the same kind of problem with Aperture, from time to time. The TIFF file is correct, you can open it without problem but Aperture doesn't recognize it as a valid file.

I've had this problem, too. I love Affinity Photo, but have had to keep another image editor as my primary editor simply because I use workflow software (formerly Aperture, currently C1P).

If Affinity's default for "Save" were to save the file back to its original location and in its original format (.tif) as opposed to automatically converting it to an Affinity file, that should, I would think, solve the problem. Seems simple enough, but then I'm not a coder.

Yes please to the idea of Affinity Photo being able to open a Tif/jpeg/whatever and save back to the same format to make it suitable for roundtripping, from both C1 and Media Pro and presumably other media libraries.

Saving back to TIFF with Affinity layers will be available in Version 1.5. Coming soon.

You can round trip from Ci to AP using file type of PSD.  Certainly in version 11, and also 10.  Not sure about 9.  You may have to refresh previews in C1 to see the PSD file.
