Using a calibrated icc profile in osx settings crashes both affinity apps!

Recommended Posts

Hey

After spending my entire morning trying to get the affinity apps to work on my macs I found out that using .icc profiles in system settings which were produced by dispcalGUI crashes both affinity apps instantly on startup! Switching to the default uncalibrated system profile everything works but of course this is not a solution. This happens with both my macs, macbook pro (early 2008, 4gb, ssd), mac mini (mid 2011, 16gb, ssd, 2 cinema displays) os is 10.10.5 on both, fresh installs btw, calibrated with spyder2 colorimeter using dispcalGUI.

 

I attached one cinema display icc. Using this on your own system will of course result in shifted colors, but the crashing issue can hopefully be traced to it's roots. Selecting this as a system default profile in os x display settings will get the crashing-party started with AP and AD, but as soon as you select the os default all will be well again. Phase one's capture one Pro has no problem while using the same profile. I have nothing else to test against anymore, since I just ditched Adobe Ps and Ai...

 

I need help with this issue badly. I need AP working asap.

 

All the best,

Peter

Hey

Slap a Fixed sign on this, no crashing for me today, and hopefully ever again. What a relief, yesterday morning was an exhausting experience for me, but I guess if I want great tools I also have to do my part in making them work.

Was the profile too "precise" for the apps taste? Because while the results are great, the calibration process sure as hell took 80min/display on the fastest setting as opposed to the old and now incompatible colorvision software which was like 15 tops.

 

All the best,

Peter
