RAW File Support for Canon EOS R

Recommended Posts

Hi FintanMcTiernan,

Welcome to the forums.

If you purchased from the Windows store, the apps are automatically updated. If purchased from the Mac App Store, you can set to have updates installed automatically or to be notified. If you've purchased direct from our Affinity store, the apps will notify you an update is available. The Affinity store process may change to automatic when we release our 1.7 updates.

Just purchased EOS R, looking for editor and am super impressed with Affinity... the challenge is that it doesn't support EOS R RAW files. Am I looking at a wait of a month or two or longer?

I've been waiting over a year for them to fix 6D mkII RAW files, so wouldn't hold my breath for newer types of RAW.

Not for the Serif APh 1.7.x RAW engine so far, since this depends on third party libraw support instead. - However, on macOS Mojave the EOS R is supported by the Apple RAW engine, thus one can switch APh for Mac there to use the Apple RAW engine instead.


☛ Affinity Designer 1.7.1 ◆ Affinity Photo 1.7.1 ◆ OSX El Capitan

Is there any sign of support for CR3 raw file conversion ?

It is nearly March 2019 and almost 4 months have passed since the Canon EOS R was released.

Neither Windows nor iPad supports the Apple RAW engine. When is Affinity Photo capable of reading EOS Rs RAW Files?

The IOS version of Affinity Photo uses Apple's RAW Engine. See for example this reply by @stokerg from November 2018.

Then there is a slight chance that it may work now on iPads (iOS 12).
(Supported RAW formats iOS 12 and macOS Mojave)

Since "Canon EOS R" is on that list, it would seem the chance it would work is considerably more than slight. :)

Not according to the discussion where I found it. Seems not to work for everybody....

It won’t load directly in the Develop Persona. So I’m not sure what it does.
