Does anyone have a specific procedure for installing Topaz plugins on Affinity Photo running on a Mac OSx? I’ve tried loading Clean and Detail but although they are partially recognised in the Plugin configuration window, they don’t seem to work.
Clean shows a prompt: Error: ple1. ase report this error to Topaz Labs.
Detail shows: IPC Memory in use or Image size is too big for the system.
Thanks for the list but I can’t use any Topaz plugin with Affinity Photo. I’ve tried Clean and Detail but although they are recognised as unknown plugins they come up with error messages. Do you have some ‘different’ default procedure for loading Topaz plugins in Affinity Photo running on a Mac OSx machine?
I was checking on the Affinity Forum and there may be a setting in the plugin settings on the mac called “Authorize Global”, make sure that is checked. Note that this isn’t a bug as only Photoshop is supported for PS plugins but there are ways of getting them to work with Affinity.
Thank you for trying to solve this problem
As you hopefully can tell from the uploaded screenshot from the preferences menu in Affinity Photo, my settings are exactly the same as you suggested.
What happens next is when I open an image from within AP and then select Filter>Topaz>Topaz Studio 2, Topaz Studio 2 opens and looks like it is working. But what happens next is, that I do not get to see any Looks and/or Filters. They stay hidden ‘mysteriously’ My guess is that the plugin is being detected, but the subfolders containing Looks and Filters is not.
So if you have any suggestion on how to solve this, I would be in your debt indefinitely ;))
