Alpha channel bug in plug-in API

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I’m the author of the Flaming Pear plug-ins. Recently, customers have asked for support for Affinity Photo.

 

It appears the plug-ins don’t quite work correctly because Affinity often misreports the pixel format. In particular, 

 

- the FilterRecord’s filterCase field always contains the undefined value zero

 

- four-plane RGB+A data is reported as just three planes. So plug-ins are unable to access the alpha channel, which, upon exit, is full of garbage values.

 

I’ve attached a document summarizing how Photoshop and Affinity report the pixel data differently. If this could be fixed, it would likely repair the compatibility problem with many vendors' plug-ins.

I am running 1.5.2 of Affinity Photo, and I still experience the above reported problem with Flaming Pear Flood 2 plugin. Should I download the latest beta to see if the problem has been solved?
