Two small requests that will make Affinity Photo and Designer fit perfectly in VFX and TVC pipelines.

Recommended Posts

Hi Affinity team

 

I have two small feature requests that will make Affinity Photo and Designer fit really good into VFX, movie and TVC production.

 

1.

My primary request is import and export in the Open EXR file format.

Some of the key features of Open EXR is:

High Dynamic range, up to 32 bit float.

Multiple channel sets (layers / passes).

Multiple compression types, both lossless and lossy.

 

Open EXR is used all around in VFX, movie and TVC production. It is supported by, and the preferred image file format of many tools in VFX production (nuke, maya, modo, mari, fusion, scratch, daVinci resolve, etc. and even AE, but it's really bad implemented in PS).

 

2.

The second request is support for motion picture and TV color spaces.

Being able to handle Rec709, cineon (LOG), P3, Rec2020, ACES, etc. correctly in Affinity Photo and Designer would be a huge plus.

I'm not a developer, but I think it could be done through the OpenColorIO color management solution, which is also widely adopted by VFX production tools.

 

 

A still image editor is not the primary tool in the VFX, movie and TVC world. But it is always there as a secondary tool for doing quick fixes, converting images and vector files, developing raw files, etc.

These requests I mention are weak points/not supported at all with most other image editors, and I think if Affinity Photo and Designer get's it right, it could be a huge plus, and with the very reasonable price tag I can't see reasons to not choose Affinity Photo and Designer.

 

 

Cheers
