Coming 2016 - 32bit HDR Editing! (Sneak preview!)

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

Just thought I'd post up this little preview video of one of the features which will become available in Affinity Photo Beta sometime early next year - 32bit HDR editing mode!

So if I use a "too strong" levels adjustment and clip (I hope it´s the right word) the whites and then adjust the exposure later on (bring it down), the whites detail will come back?

That sounds good cause I questioned myself just recently if it would be better to use levels adjustment in an early or a late stage of image manipulation....your solution would erase that question :)

The benefits are not kept when exporting to 8/16bit - but you don't need to!

 

As well as being able to keep the .afphoto file, we are also adding import / export support for OpenEXR and JPEG-XR - both of which can store 32bit unbounded.

 

Thanks,

 

Andy.

OpenEXR - I hope this means that you'll support import of OpenEXR as well :)

Andy, will the native Affinity file formats (.afdesign, .afphoto, etc) support 32-bit HDR, or only via import and export of OpenEXR format files?

 

Yes, both import and export :D

Great that's what i was hoping to hear... What an amazing format you guys have developed!

 

Adoblow™ — your days are numbered!

 

.afdesign and .afphoto are the same format - just with different names - and they will both support 32-bit HDR completely :)

I'd love to work with 32 render passes too . Only problem Photo needs a few  tools from node based Fusion and Nuke to make any advantages from that. Or at least a kind of "formula" driven layers and masks  where I could use output of certain layer group as a mask for another layer .  

 

 Photo ability to do that are extremely limited. Not even at Photoshop level comparing with its clipping groups feature appeared in cs6.
