Slow develop speed

Recommended Posts

I have installed the new beta and ran a speed check, comparing it with the current version 1.6.5.135. I loaded a RAW (CR2 format) file of 27.5 Mb; the current version took 20 secs and the new beta 22 secs. I then immediately (without any processing) "developed" in each version - the "stable" version took 15 secs and the beta 1 min 22 secs, with almost all of that time without any sign of activity. I repeated the beta test with the same result. Saving the resulting jpeg in afphoto format and exporting as a jpeg gave virtually equal timings.

My open speed has improved for ORF files, but I have to agree the develop speed is slower.

What is the GPU you are using? You can check under Performance in the Preferences and then under Renderer.

Develop for me is still the same at 10-15 seconds but loading the RAW is about 2-4 seconds for 5D - Mk 2, Mk 3 and sR

Windows doesn't utilise GPU for processing (yet). GPU only affects drawing to screen right now.

Thanks for clarifying ...

My desktop computer is 7 years old. 4 Gb RAM, SSD, 2 core 3.2 GHz processor, 2 Gb video card. I have just tried again with the same CR2 file - time to load 27 seconds, time to develop 1.min 20 seconds, including 25 seconds before the develop moving bar appeared. With the non-beta version straight after, time to load was 23 seconds, time to develop 39 seconds, with the develop bar appearing immediately.

Tested with compressed .raf Files from Fujifilm X-T20:

Affinity 1.6.5.123

Loading: 28s

Develop: 3s

Affinity 1.7.0.188

Loading: 16s

Develop: 22s

=> Loading is much faster, develop (no changes applied) much slower.

System: Windows 10, Intel i5 6200U, 8GB RAM.

I also observed the same problem with my CR2 files (18Mpx), but with my RAF files (24Mpx), it's better with the new 1.7.0.188. It's even faster than the Canon RAW files.

No response from Affinity so is it being looked at?

Good to be informed!

Seeing this I decided to check and came up with this using a CR2 file(20.17MB) from my Canon EOS 70D

Stable 1.6.5.123

  • Program Load: 20.86 secs
  • Load CR2 file: 5.43 secs
  • Develop Adjusted File : 6.48 secs

Beta 1.7.0.188

  • Program Load: 17.20 secs
  • Load CR2 Adjusted File: 9.0 secs
  • Develop Adjusted File: 15.87 secs

These tests were run with my anti-virus, AVG (Free version) disabled since I always will disable it when post-processing.

I also tested with anti-virus enabled and there was only a one or two seconds difference.

My computer has just been upgraded from 4 Gb RAM,  two core 3.2 GHz processor and an SSD to 8 Gb RAM and a quad core 2.83 processor - the most the motherboard will take (7 years old). Speeds are remarkably faster, Load time of a 27.5 Mb CR2 file (Canon 750 D) for ver 1.65 has dropped from 20 secs to 12 secs, and beta ver 1.7 from 22 secs to 12 secs. Time to develop for 1.65 has dropped from 15 secs to 9 secs and the beta version dropped massively from 1 min 20 secs to 9 secs. Times for other operations are generally slightly faster than previously for both versions, but they were quite quick anyway.
