Does Affinity handle the Canon RAW format DPR (DualPixel RAW)

Recommended Posts

Recently announced image sensors by Canon in their newly introduced 5d MK4 series use a sensor called dual pixel and results in a dual image output available and called DPR (Dual Pixel Raw). My question for Affinity Photo users: has anyone experimented with this raw file? How does AP (Affinity Photo) handle it, either for HDR or micro-focus compensation, ghosting or otherwise taking advantage of its capabilities in image processing? There is a Canon utility designed to break this out for processing and other apps designed to split the file into two versions of the same image for HDR use. 

The magazine DPR and others have some comments about this new imager and camera. I've just started playing around with the camera's capabilities (awesome and looking to AP for some unique processing ideas. 

For stitching DPR-enabled images from this camera, what is the recommended practice? I did this is Lightroom very quickly and would like some suggestions in trying it likewise in AP. Lightroom uses a stack (grouping of pictures) whereby each member of the stack can be separately processed, then combined and stitched. Is the method the same in AP? Is there a suggested workflow? The enclosed "pano" stitched image from the Matanzas Forest, FL (composited from 8 images size: 18216x3820p). Reduced for this post to 1000x210@72ppi. 577204102_HMS_190105-8_MatanzasForest_WinterVisit-Pano.jpg.957c3bced1a2ed49cd359288964f269d.jpg
