AP 1.7.1 slow performance when healing

Recommended Posts

I hadn’t ever noticed anything slow about Affinity Photo until after installing 1.7.1. When using healing brush I’m experiencing some serious delays between when I perform a brush stroke and when I see results. I’m actually experiencing this on both the Mac and IOS versions. Anyone experiencing the same? And if so, any suggestions to improve performance? 

My Mac: 2016, 15” Retina Macbook Pro,  2.9 GHz Core i7, 16GB, Raedon Pro 460 4 GB, 2tb SSD. OSX: 10.14.5

iPad: 2018 12.9” iPad Pro, 512 GB - OS up to date

Camera/files: Fuji GFX 50s, compressed raw

Noticing the performance lag when applying the healing brush to the base layer of the pair of layers created when invoking the frequency separation filter.

Sometimes the delay is as slow as a second; other time, several seconds. When trying to retouch a face, these kinds of delays can make post production of a single file a bit frustrating.

Any suggestions most welcome.

Hi tpf1952, photoadele,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
We already have received a few reports of slowdowns/lags after the update to v. 1.7. Most of them are related with Metal compute acceleration. We are looking into this. You can try turn it off in Affinity Photo Preferences, Performance section (on bottom) to see if things get better/speedier for you.

Thank you for your reply, MEB. I'll adjust preferences as you suggest.

Working with Photo and Designer every day; mighty fine software.

I don't have Metal selected, I have OpenGL.

Alas, switching off Metal compute acceleration does not ameliorate performance.

Fingers crossed that a fix is in the wings.

Best of luck,

Tom

Managed to downgrade to 1.6.7 via Time Machine. Rebooted and resumed work. Stunning surprise: performance still compromised. Deleted 1.6.7, then reinstalled 1.7.1 Result: AP is running okay. 

Speculation: I could have saved myself some steps, simply deleted 1.7.1 in the first place, rebooted, reinstalled and gone to work.

Glad it worked, anyway.
