Affinity V2 apps need to update to new digital image formats. It's crashing always.


Recommended Posts

I believe that in 2019, to control people to download images from the web and try to help photographers the web start allowing new formats like HEIC, WebP and AVIF to be used on the web. Sometimes clients send me pictures in those formats and I forget, and my project crashes immediately because Affinity can't handle some of them. I haven't tried to open them on the Beta but the regular and stable version basically can't play well with them. Anyone with the same experience?

Affinity Photo V2 does support Webp and HEIC, but unless I'm mistaken (and could very well be), it still does not support AVIF.

On Mac I can drag and drop, webP, Heif and Heic files into Affinity, no crash.

Considering AVIF is similar to Heif, wouldn't it be fairly easy to add to the list of supported file types.

Quote

AV1 Image File Format (AVIF) is an image file format specification for storing still images or image sequences compressed with AV1 in the HEIF file format.[222] It competes with HEIC which uses the same container format, built upon ISOBMFF, but HEVC for compression.

Workaround 2,045 :D: Gimp supports Avif files so you could simply export to a file format Affinity supports for now.

Hi All, at this time as far as I'm aware we have nothing set in stone as to whether we will add AVIF support etc. However the app shouldn't just crash when you try and place a .AVIF into it so I'll get this logged with our developers. Are you experiencing any issues when placing HIEF or WebP images into Affinity?

Thanks

Well, I think those formats are not the issue here, AVIF is the one giving us problems.

That is what I was checking, I'll get this logged with our developers to hopefully avoid the crashing in the future. Just for clarity we currently don't support AVIF files.

Thanks

Where to go to set up this stone? Forum? This below there is a +30 messages with no Moderators response. Glad @Callum is here. We all aPAYciate the Development of Affinity, this "new" feature should come before we have to pay a 3th time for affinity suite.

Serif generally does not respond to Feature Requests, as a matter of policy. That forum is for us to make our wishes known. Serif staff read the posts there, and factor them into their plans, but in general Serif does not reveal their future plans.
