Re: Affinity Photo 1.7.3 opens A7RIV files in some 2 seconds on my MAC

This is the reaction from Affinity Photo (question asked on forum). Literally:

“Processing RAW files doesn't use the same pipelines as when opening individual RAW images in the Develop persona, because of this the process can take sometime and files may look different. It may be worth modifying your workflow to reduce the amount of RAW images into smaller groups. Another option would be to use a third party app to process the images first into .TIFF, then import into Affinity Photo to continue editing”

I do realize, that I’m not using Affinity Photo as it should be used. That’s to say, that I used it correctly so far (exporting from DXO Photolab as, let’s say, Tiff), but now I tried to import RAW files directly from internal SSD (iMac), into AP. I don’t think this is a fault of Affinity Photo; it just works like that).
