Hi @Dan C maybe this helps to implement it. I know this is only reversed engineered from CR3 files and not an official supported CR3 description, but it describes a lot of the file content and how to handle it.

I know this is for the desktops but am going to chime in here too for iOS. Not that iPadOS supports RAW images, I would like to see this in iPadOS as soon as possible! I am trying to get away from desktops and laptops and imagine there are many more like me that  are trying to edit CR3 files. 

what is the timeline for this?

Hi Bobbybob :)

Our apps on iOS use the Apple Core RAW engine, meaning support for certain file types/cameras is controlled by Apple and not ourselves.

AFAIK, CR3s are currently supported on iPad, but only certain camera models - you can see the full RAW list here - https://support.apple.com/HT208967

All RAW support for the Affinity applications on iOS (and iPadOS) comes from Apple. So if it's not already supported, only Apple would know when they will offer support for CR3 files. Their current list for RAW support (iOS12) is here.

Thanks, Walt. iOS does support the G5X in their list but I have the Mark II. Is there that big of a difference between the 5X and 5X Mark II file type? I can open the files from the mark II on my iPad just fine but when I try to open in Affinity, I get the message stating cannon open file type.

I don't know, but you really should be over in the iPad part of the forums for that discussion :)

How does the Apple Raw engine compare to the built in Raw converters in Affinity? I'm currently using Windows but thinking of switching to Mac, which I know doesn't natively support CR3, so I'd have to use the Apple engine for now.

FYI, beta 1.8.0.486 on Windows, released today, says it has CR3 support.

I tried affinity-photo-customer-beta-1.8.0.486 but it seems the EOS R CR3 files is still not supported: image.png.5a75c86877267e9df183b953b18aca94.png

Oh, sorry to hear that, my CR3 files come from the M50 and they open, would have thought all CR3 files would work.

Hi Wilfried, may I ask how you open them, my beta version shows the images but the moment I double click the image to open I get the message file type not supported

Affinity Photo is a good product, but can't understand that about 2 years since the .cr3 format was first used on Canon cameras, Serif still don't support it on the Windows platform.  Canon are some of the most popular cameras on the market and Serif are pushing themselves as a real rival to Photoshop and yet you have the extra step of converting to .dng before editing in Photo.  I know this is not a big deal and Serif don't have the resources of Adobe, but other software such as On1 now support it.
