Odd RAM Behaviour

Recommended Posts

I had made an earlier thread regarding performance issues here, and I don't know what's happening with that. I've been using Affinity in 1minute short bursts since then if really necessary, and Capture One for most other things. I'm hoping 1.7.2 brings some good news. Anyway, I've noticed something odd by chance. I've no idea if this is intended or a bug, but Affinity Photo seems to have issues with releasing/flushing RAM. You fire it up, it takes about 130-135MB. You open a RAW it takes up around 1.4 GB. You develop the RAW and do some Photo Persona editing, and it takes around 1.5 to 2.0 GB depending on what you did. You close the file/cancel it all, and it stays there, never releasing the RAM. Is this intentional?
