1.9.2 "Not responding" a HUGE lot more.


Recommended Posts

I mean, it happened once in a while in the previous versions. But it's really very much more since 1.9.2. Almost daily.

Is it just me? I've been able to open a recovery version every time after killing a hanging Affinity Photo but it's not fun. I've lost a bit of work this way.
I'm lucky that I'm not making my money with this.

Are there logs I can offer to see what's wrong?

Edit: FYI, I'd be glad if it was just me. Then it'd be fixable on my end instead of having to wait for an update :)

I suspect that using the correct spelling crashreports will be rather more successful. ;)

Heh, I found it anyway :)

But there's no report.. It really just hangs and won't recover anymore so I guess that makes a bit of sense.

Nope. Not yet anyway.
Worked without crashing or hanging in 1.9.0 and 1.9.1 (some weird behavior now and then but not breaking the software). I'm hoping it's not the cause because I really love the added performance.

Since I don't see any "Yeah I have that too!" replies I'm assuming it's something on my end. Probably shouldn't be in the bugs-section..

Seems like it's happenening once it's out of video-ram. I tried clearing a bit onced it hanged by closing my browser, that's where the used vram goes down a bit but Affinity Photo did not recover from that.

Been through something like  this with the beta. Even have similar GPU use plots to you. Have a look at

%APPDATA%\Affinity\Photo\1.0\Log.txt

on your machine.

If it's like mine with OpenCl acceleration on it will be full of error messages. I also have 4Gb of GPU memory.

The activated hardware acceleration can unfortunately lead to errors with some device configurations at the moment, so that it is recommended not to use the hardware acceleration for the time being.

The developers know the problem. Unfortunately, it is very complex, so that the determination of the cause may take some time.

Hey Xzenor,

Please also make sure you are running the latest drivers for both your dGPU and your Intel card (if you have the Intel enabled).

There's also a Microsoft OpenCL package going around but our advise at the moment is not to install it as this is actually causing issues 😟

Looks fine to me.. I am curious about that second adapter though. that's a bit odd. I disabled the onboard gpu in the Bios and it's no longer visible in the device manager (even with 'show hidden devices' enabled)

GeForce experience will make sure I'm up2date :) I checked to be sure and there's no update available atm.

I can confirm that it stops hanging if I disable it.

Could I provide additional data to help the developers?

Maybe the driver corpses from the onboard GPU are causing the problems!
Get the Display Driver Uninstaller and uninstall existing driver remnants.

The download link is below.

Nevermind, the second one was Microsoft Remote display.. Uninstalled that as well.

The intel one was completely uninstalled.

Still happening though. Once it reaches 4GB the screen goes pale, the titlebar get's all windows95 design again..
a bit of clicking produces the "Hey's it's not responding. Should we wait or put the program out of its missery?" dialog.

Waiting never fixed anything.

I wanted to chime in on this. This new version was super-slow at a lot of things. Like ridiculous.

I turned off OpenCL and it cured it all. Such a simple thing.

Oh that's odd. It's really faster for me with OpenCL turned on but I've had it hang so many times now that I've turned it off. It became unworkable.
I preferred the 1.9.1 way where it would just visually screw up the effects on the image and I could still save first before manually restarting Affinity Photo, instead of having to rely on the autosave feature.
