Hi,
Smooth installation, as usual for me.

Is it possible to save workspaces ? I did not know and I can not find how to save... ??
Thanks,

Patrick

It does it automatically. I actually have a better fix for this now, as it will still crash in a different location now. I'd be interested in receiving anyone's workspace files who is experiencing a crash at startup, or crash when pressing shortcut key.

But then, the workspace of the 1.6 beta should have appeared in 1.7 beta ? It was not the case for me [unrelated : and I specified yesterday herein that I've lost the gradient maps of the 1.6 beta].

Any reason the beta version number is never part of the download aka the file names? - IMO using affinity-photo-customer-beta-1.7.0.184.exe would be much more meaningful, especially in terms of the higher actual fluctuation of beta version downloads.

The long awaited update !!!:D

How did you improved the X-Trans support ? I don't see any difference when opening a RAF file on 1.6 ou 1.7 Beta... As a Fuji Owner, I'm really interested in this part....

Hi C_Calmes

To load Affinity and 22.15mb compressed RAF file for me .

1.6  30sec

1.7  13sec.

I would call that  a significant difference/improvement!

However Develop seems to take longer in 1.7 ?

Have you tried the C1 v12 Beta gives fuji film simulations and after developing it can open the file in Affinity to continue editing.

 

 

New Affinity Beta updated perfectly.

Yes... this is an improvement... But I was expecting a better converter that could avoid the use of Iridient X-Transformer. A RAF file opened in On1 Photo RAW or Exposure X4 is really sharper than in Affinity Photo.

What is the C1 v12 Beta you're talking about ?

Ha ok... I already use Capture One Express Fuji. Great. But I would have been really happy to have a one app workflow.

Also, the 1.7 beta seems to be a bit buggy for the moment... So maybe next
