Mark,

 

I don't see this mentioned in the fixes, so I have to ask: did you guys work on the Fuji raw loading times? Because it loads way faster here compared to any previous release. About 4 secs to load a full RAW from my X-T10!

 

Edit: never mind, I must have overlooked this, I hadn't tried on the .89 latest stable release, and it performs as fast! :)

Same loading speed here, as with the latest betas. About 19sec. I always try the same RAF files from my X-E2 and X-E1

 

Hm.. not sure. I have tried several times with different RAW files from the X-10, same results. Always about 4sec.

I don't know if it could add anything, but in case, you can share one of your raw files and I can give it a try, just to double check.

Hello all,
my first impressions of the new beta are positive :)
following hardware and filters works without problems
Huion Graphic Tablet
NIK filter collection
Topaz Remask Filter

these program functions, also without problems
Qick Mask
mask layer
Images are inserted correctly

Great job from the team, the program gets better with every update.

I will continue testing.

Best Regards
Gnobelix

Hi Mark, '90 is really looking good on my system. I used it earlier to output artwork, photos and a catalog for a customer. All worked flawlessly. Thank you!

All Nik, Topaz, Corel Particle Shop plugins are working too.

There are still problems with Nik plugins:

With 16bit tiff files Viveza shows wrong colors when I use less than 100% view inside Viveza. Viveza has correct colors in Partha Bagchi's Gimp 2.9.6 compiles. It must be possible to slve this problem.

When I make a selection (screenshot) inside Affinita Photo of a 16bit tiff file and want to work on that selection with a Nik filter I get more or less corrupted previews (see screenshots). When I make changes inside the Nik filter and save Affinity  Photo applies them correctly only to the selection. But with these corrupted previews I must work blind.

When I do the same with a Topaz filter I get a preview not of the selection but of the whole image. That is enough to work with.

since 1.6 I also seem to have a weird issue with my brushes where the dynamics settings are all set to 0, and if you change the value the whole dialog grays out. this happens almost always with the DAUB pro brushes that were in the pre order pack.

Yes, with those raw files it definitely takes longer. I'll do more test with the raw files from my wife's X-T2, I know they can be compressed or fully uncompressed, just curious if that will make any difference.

I am pleased to see someone else has found this issue...I believe it's being dealt with.

Great to hear that.

 

Both Designer and Photo freeze the app for a while on Export.

Additionally version .89 crashed the apps on BICUBIC resamling option.


cheers,

Can confirm it works at least partially. When ran with a full image, FF works fine. When I selected a part of the image, and refined the selection, FF complained about an unexpected mask presence state.
