Have you tried doing it this way: https://petapixel.com/2017/12/15/can-run-nik-collection-plugins-standalone-apps-heres/ because I think they would be better installed to the Applications folder.

I kept the old plugins folder from Google that was in the Default Folder, but replaced the NIK Collection by the new one. Now the old plugins start the new tools, works fine on my Mac. The new tools did not seem to be able to be installed into a directory of my liking, but only as plugins for specific apps (none of which I have).

Edit: No, sorry, you are completely correct. I have the same effect ... now looking into it.

I've been playing with all morning, trying colour effect, silver effect, sharpener pro and analog without any issues from AP.

i uninstalled the old version from the uninstaller in app/nik collection folder (MAC) and install the new dxo nik, now all the presets I had made are back when using nik collection. haven't touch any old folders or setting in AP. 

the first time I installed the new dxo nik I did not uninstall the old first and noticed that all presets were gone.

Hi Mikerofoto

That's interesting so it looks like it is possible to get them working. I'm still trying with no luck ...

I've noticed in your screen-shot that you have a complete list of all the Nik apps in the 'Plug-in Support Folders' panel .... is that something you added manually or did it just find them with 'authorise global'? I just get the / which is what I had before with the old version ....

Cheers

i added them manually after installing the old free Nik and just the googe folder for the plugin search, haven’t changed anything to that before installing the new Nik. I did used the authorized global otherwise they were not working with AP.

Hello everybody, 

it seems that we are a bit scattered on this topic, there is another thread on the Affinity forum.

Maybe you could have a look at the DXO forum : https://feedback.dxo.com/t/request-nik-affinity-interoperability/3203/5

We ought to show up there, so maybe the DXO team will notice that there is not only Adobe users on earth. ;-)

Hi Mikerofoto,

I have tried your installation according to the screenshot you have provided and it doesn't work for me. Nik still freeze during the "preparing image" process.

Have you check this really is the new version that you are running ? Sorry to ask but the first link they send to me after purchase was actually the latest free release 1.12.12 instead of the 1.12.14 paid one. They apologized for that, but first I have thought that everything worked perfectly.
The solution I use for now, is to install the new version in standalone and the old one for the plugins. 
Oddly, when I check the version number, it shows the old plugin number with the new suite number version, e.g. Silver Efex pro shows version 2.0.0.25 (1.12.14) instead of 2.0.0.25 (1.12.12) or 5.0.0.0 (1.12.14).

yes, I got that email too saying it was the wrong link and had to download the new one, for installation of the new Nik you have to delete the old one(from DxO website troubleshooting page), which I did using uninstall from the Nik folder in the app folder, then installed the new Nik from DxO, which asked for the serial number on installation.

I tried sharpener pro as stand alone for the image and all I had was a blank, haven’t got time to try again but will check later to see if I still have this issue.

you got me thinking that I have the wrong version installed and double checked.

the DxO version will show upper right corner Nik by DxO and not Nik Collection like on your screenshot.

here's mine

Hi Mikerofoto,

This screen is the new paid version, but in standalone version and on Mac at least, there isn't any issues running the standalone app. 

In my post I was referring to the plugin version. The difference is seen in the "save" button down-right of the UI, in the plugin running in AP it is a "OK" button (to apply the plugin to a layer instead of overwriting the file)

Hi firstdefence,

Yes, 1.12.12 works fine in both standalone and plugin versions (this is the latest free version from DXO). Better keep a copy of that one, there isn't any major changes in the latest paid release anyway...

If you already have the latest paid version from DXO (1.12.14), the standalone app works fine, but the plugins don't work and cause AP to freeze (you have to use the force-to-quit option). So you can use the new standalone alongside the old plugins (just replace the new plugins folder by a backup of the old one)

Hi Mohammed,

Your plugin search folder doesn't seem to be the good one. Actually, according to your screenshot, there is twice the same path, and this is the standalone app path.

You have to change for the plugin path, wich is where you create it when the Nik install dialog box ask you for third party applications, then restart AP.

No, as I wrote above, for the plugins, I use the last free version from DXO, which is 1.12.12
Anyway, this installation is the same for any version you want to use, even the latest paid release (1.12.14). I don't think that the installation path could change anything in the plugin working.

I recently added the NIC Collection (trial paid version) to Affinity and it stopped working when processing Color Effex Pro 4.  Dfine 2 seems to work fine.  I checked permissions on the root drive since I had to enable global permissions during the installation process.  I had no permissions for the root directory on my hard drive and was unable to change it.  I checked the Apple forum and apparently this is a new security feature of the Mac OS.  I am wondering if this is causing the NIC Collection to lock up...
