Jpeg 9.1 incorporation of Affinity Suite.

Recommended Posts

The new Jpeg 9.1 file format(codec) has some hugh advantages over the old standard. Will you guys incorporate support for this new format into the Affinity Suite?

I mean, lossless compression, 12 bit, HDR, etc. is something very nice to have.

I think that will depend on their third party lib to support that...

But maybe they have implemented it on their own.

Actually I'm not to sure about that right now because the third party license statement mentions the usage of OpenJPEG which describes on it's website that it's for JPEG 2000. But you can't export this format from Affinity, so this may be used for regular JPEG exports. I'm a bit confused here.

However: You can try to find out if the recent OpenJPEG version is capable of what you ask for and suggest updating it (which they may have done anyway).


If I have to make a wild guess: They use "libjpeg" for this and forgot to mention that in the third party licenses.
