System crashes on import

Recommended Posts

I have a win 10 machine.  I am trying to load about 300 NEF (Nikon RAW ) files into Afinity.  Each file size is about 73M. The steps I follow are:


Select all files from the dialog

Select "Open " from the dialog.

The machine loads between 170 and 210 files then seems to take over all system resources to the extent I don't have mouse or keyboard control.  I have to power down/up the machine. Alt/Tab and Ctrl/Alt/Del to stop the program have no effect.

Any Ideas as to what I am doing wrong? Thanks.

Very unfortunate as many of my loads will be in the 800 to 1k + range. I really like the program. Is there any guidance on the size of the batches that won't crash the system? If its any help I think it is a memory allocation issue where the loading files take over all memory including some protected space. I have 32GB with .5 T SSD as my work drive and a .25 T SSD as my C: (system) drive.

Today's new beta release (Ver


"Fixed sporadic hanging when opening many image files at once"

So you might want to give that a try and report back

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be concerned about.
