Maybe improved NIK support in Affinity incoming

I’ve just read this comment from an Affinity developer, maybe this is the key to solve the color issues while using Nik tools in Affinity Photo:


There is an update to this. The compatibility has been increased to the following (text copied from Affinity forums):

The color bug is fixed in those plugins as of Affinity Photo 1.7 beta 333:

Topaz Studio 1.14.4
Topaz Denoise AI 1.0.3
Topaz Sharpen AI 1.1.3
Nik Color Efex Pro 4
Nik Analog Efex Pro 2
Nik HDR Efex Pro 2

Other plugins that still display wrong colors when invoked from Affinity Photo 1.7.333 are:

Nik Dfine 2
Nik Viveza 2
Nik Sharpener Pro 3
Alien Skin Bokeh 2
Neat Image 8.3.7 

Is there a big difference in color handling between the Efex plugins on the one side and Dfine, Viveza and Sharpener on the other?


I just downloaded the most recent NIK collection (was intrigued by a 30% rebate offer). Glad I tried it out first. Most plugins don’t scale well on high-resolution displays, and the effects are burned into your current pixel layer. Uninstalled after about two hours of playing around. Maybe NIK 4 will be the ticket. But, sadly enough, with all software improving and NIK 3 not really being all that different from NIK 1 (aka the free Google version) I am doubtful.
