Affinity photo iPad crashes everytime I try focus merge with raw files

Recommended Posts

Hi affinity photo often crashes on iPad with random tasks, one that ha-pens every time is when I choose multiple raw images from iPhoto’s and try to focus stack them. How it goes is 

1. Open affinity photo

2. Click new document with focus stack

3. Select raw images to stack from photos

4. Apply.......shows processing .....then.....crash...

no matter how many times u try and no matter how many files u choose even if it’s just 3 files it won’t work. 

it’s really sad that this happens... also u need to make some way for being able to manually adjust focus stack after its done. In the past once u focus stack the images it shows as just one image in affinity photo. It’ll be great if it comes as layers and then we can manually make adjustments if required..the AI in affinity is not the smartest...😊

Hi @Vcmclicks,

Welcome to the forums. 

I can't replicate this here with some Nikon RAW samples. Even though it's not advisable to stack RAW files, it should not crash. Can you upload some samples here so we can have a look? https://www.dropbox.com/request/dbJMJjo4ayaTI58cvojf

I suggest you always pre-process your photos prior to any stacking/focus merging, as there is no advantage in using RAW files for that.
