Affinity Photo Customer Beta - 1.6.0.72

Recommended Posts

Click here to download the latest beta

Status: Customer Beta
Purpose: New features
Requirements: A valid product key, issued when Windows Affinity Photo version 1.5 was purchased.

This is the second beta of a substantial change to our codebase and as much as we have tried to ensure the quality of the code, it is considered to be not suitable for production use. This means that you should not attempt to use it for commercial purposes or for any other activity that you may be adversely affected by the application failing. In addition it is definitely worth noting that files created in Affinity 1.6 may not open in 1.5 so always make a copy of your important documents before opening them in 1.6 to ensure you do not accidentally overwrite them and are unable to open them in your 1.5 version.

We hope you enjoy the latest build, and as always, if you've got any problems, please don't hesitate to post here and we'll get back to you as soon as we can. Thanks once again for your continued feedback.

If you have a general question about the software, please head over to the Questions Forum, or if you have any suggestions, please head over to the Feature Requests forum.

Fixes

  • Fixed rendering problems with Windows Display Scale set to something other than 100% or 200%
  • Fixed a variety of Light UI bugs
  • Added option to use High Precision input from WinTab (Wacom and compatible) devices (off by default)

 

Known Issues

  • Huion tablets are failing to provide input

Thank you very much! You have solved the issues I encountered so far:

1. pixelation on windows screen scaling to something other than 100%

2. the two buttons "Accept" / "Abort" (or similar) in the develop persona

3. translation of "light UI" in German

Installing without problems... used the new wacom input but have to say that (using the undo brush tool) doing one stroke there is a pause of a view seconds , after that it renders further the changes. Then another stroke ... the same pause again and again....  Generally spoken if i do the same with the mouse , no lag at all.

 

But still i am not happy with using the undo brush tool and only having 2 pixel layers active. The performance is very poor when making changes with the pen or the mouse...I use different blend modes with two layers of the same (reference layer is the bottom one) to change local contrast...

 

When i put the brush previews to off ... it is way better but still not good .

 

Another Problem i saw is in the Failures.JPG. Please look at the image and those ugly patterns came up at the left of the yellow line...

I did some work on the left side of the image with the undo brush tool, but definitly not in the area of the yellow lines.

 

The second attached Image shows the underlying (referenced) layer. I could notice this behaviour several times.

The histogram in the developer mode is displayed with a large lag. At 1.5 was displayed in real time.

German:

Hallo, die 72 ist wie die 71 unbenutzbar: Mauszeiger blendet sich aus; Verschieben von Objekten mit seltsamen Ergebnissen; die helle Oberfläche ist störisch... Sowohl beim Designer als auch Photo. Danke.

 

Google:

Hello, the 72 is like the 71 unused: mouse pointer blends itself out; Moving objects with strange results; The light surface is stubborn ... Both the designer and the photo. Thank you.

Same exact problem here.

Win 7x64 sp1, Quadro KK4000, 32gb ram.

The workaround I've found to avoid the issue is to turn off the stabilizer and re-open AP. So far it seems it works.

 

Another interesting thing is that in the previous release, the high precision tablet input wasn't working, whereas in this release it's working better.

Not 100% there yet though, when I use a large brush there's a quite big lag after I painted and for some seconds I can't click anything in the UI.

Switching back to the default brush engine and everything works fine, even with large brushes.

Hope this can give the developers a clue of what they can investigate in order to fix the problem.

 

About Develop Persona: the buttons now look good and as for the histogram at first, I thought I had the same issue as other users pointed out but after a few clicks on the various exposure, contrast etc., the histogram showed up.

 

Thanks for the build!

I have check the High Precision input from WinTab (Wacom and compatible) option. It is really hard to say anything changes.I have an impression like the circles (when draw fast) are slighlty better rounded and smooth, but still not perfect. On the other hand the lag at the begginig of every new stroke seems little worse.

Vignette Live Filter: a grid appears when the Vignette is used. Someone already mentioned this in the previous build and it's happening in the current build as well.

For some reason, the ESC key is not associated with the Select/Deselect Layers command.

Is there a way to add it back to the shortcuts? I can't simply press ESC in the shortcut associated field as it simply closes the shortcut preference window.

I tried using an ASCII character, but it seems I can only type ALT+ followed by one character (either 2 or 7) and not two characters (27, which is the ASCII value for ESC).

Any hint?

Is there an integration with Windows 10's tablet mode in the works?

 

Like a switch to an Ipad like UI when someone flips the keyboard on a device like a surface pro?

I always felt the desktop UI not that user friendly for such devices and was really impressed with the UI on the Ipad version.

The source pointer of the clone brush behaves somewhat strange. In the stable version it moves relatively to the mouse cursor or stays on the designated source point until I start painting (depending on whether "align source" is ticked or not). Not so in the latest beta, there it jumps back and forth. When I move the mouse cursor without painting the source pointer seems to follow the mouse cursor and if I don't move the mouse the source pointer is somewhat hidden inside the mouse cursor (inside the circle). As soon as I start painting the source pointer jumps back to the source point where it should be. I made a video to show you the behavior. It's definitely easier to understand if you can see it.

 

It's only an optical problem though, the clone brush itself works as expected. Maybe you can fix this for your next beta or is this an intended behavior?
