  1. Past hour
  2. It already is. For example, for my composite work I rely heavily on OpenEXR Multi-Layer renders out of my 3D applications. Photoshop can not read this files. Photoshop on Windows can, but requires a 3rd party plug-in. This plug-in does not exist on the Mac, but that's sort of irrelevant as Photoshop should have this functionality built in. Affinity Photo on the other hand reads and works in these files perfectly and natively. In my book, that's a huge win for AP and something that has me considering officially disconnecting the remaining Adobe subs I have this year.
  3. Unfortunately Affinity does not support Camera Profiles currently. Other Apps support an automated workflow using Camera Profiles. In Photo, you can manually create adjustment layers (e.g. curve) to match a photography of a test page with the digital reference test file, and save these as LUT, so you can re-apply them with one click on other images. There is a small chance that forum users like @v_kyr may provide some scripts which automate that process. As an rough idea: icc profiles and curves / channels mixer adjustments are probably related in their core functionality. LUTs are simple plain text files with conversion factors to map input to output values. iCC profiles do the same, but with an binary format.
  4. thanks for thinking along! with Rhino version 8 will hopefully fix it, but that's waiting. Else I hope I will eventually find what's wrong with the my computer.
  5. You would need to post this layer in a document. Otherwise I would have to try and guess at what the layer is made of, how it is made etc. A major waste of time.
  6. First, kudos to @lacerto for the wonderful perseverance in digging into how this formatting can be achieved in APub. My hat's off to you! I did want to circle back around to the following: Yep, tagged text can the issue in two ways, either by explicitly encoding a tracking value in the tagged text file (here, the <k-375> tag prior to the space character): Or via a c.style, which has a negative tracking value for the space character: However, that c.style can also be manually applied or be applied via conditional style in Q, etc. In all cases, the result is the same: It doesn't matter what the text string is. I'm pretty sure ID can have negative kerning/tracking in a c.style as can QXP, and certainly can be done via tagged text.
  7. I'm considering getting a DataColor SpyderCheckr 24 to color calibrate my camera. Suppose I generate an ICC profile for my camera, using DataColor SpyderCheckr 24 software. How to apply such profile in Affinity Photo, so that my images get color corrected? Do I apply the generated ICC profile on the Develop page, under Basic? Or do I need to develop as any colorspace (say sRGB) and then do softproofing in the Photo persona using the generated ICC profile? I'm a little lost. I need that the images get color corrected for my particular camera and shooting conditions. So far I only understand that I need to shoot the Checkr in the session's light conditions and that I have to do it for every session, when the light changes. Then I need to apply the correction in Affinity Photo, but I don't know how. Thanks.
  8. Brushes that are larger than the images height or just a very large brushes are normally indicated by three large concentric circles.
  9. Exactly what I did. They still don't run from the AP plugins menu.
  10. If you mean making the layer with the hairline edge the child layer of a curve layer, I tried that and it did not get rid of the hairline, I am afraid
  11. Yeah, optimization for M1 and Metal are key. If apps or plugins are not yet optimized for M1 you won't experience much improvement in performance. Affinity Photo however is significantly optimized for Metal and M1 so you shouldn't be experiencing any problems. I find that AP runs faster on my M1-Max than it does on my PC with an RTX GPU. If you're having issues in AP, something is off.
  12. Is there anything at all that is visible in the Layer2? If the document consisted just of (Mask) and Layer2 beneath it would there be anything on the canvas that was visible?
  13. Today
  14. @tomek_Q, what initial file type do your layer panel's thumbnails represent? Sure this looks like the OP's screenshot? – To me it is quite different, note the flat, far more abstract icon style + the mask / transparency symbol next to the thumbnail (not ON it)
  15. You are You are lucky. I see this: I am not sure what kind of icon that is - but the contrast ratio is terribly inadequate. /Eddie
  16. I do not know if this problem is only on my computer. Windows 7. Publisher 1.10.5 When i click Ctrl+A in resource manager, it selects only several images, not all. How i got it. I created package file, re-saved it as afpub file. Resource manager shows that all images Modified (i do not understand why, because pathes under window are correct). When i want to select all images and click ctrl+a, i have problem.
  17. Hello, @kfriis, The first version was released on 19 June 2019. It was already quite exciting despite some shortcomings, and it won an award. Since then, every few weeks, a new update brings its share of improvements on the existing features and from time to time we even find new functions. Except for the long-awaited footnotes, which are the subject of this discussion, you just need to open the Word text to import it. Some defects in the Word file are even corrected. That said, whether it’s QuarkXPress or Indesign, good DTP is about taking all the raw text from Words and then rebuilding the styles if you want to get a professional job. The EPUB format has nothing to do with the format of a printed book. The structure of the files has nothing to do with it, hence the disasters of the extensions of some DTP software that have tried it. This format can only be obtained with really specific software. Just select all the text from Publisher and paste it into one of these specialized programs.
  18. A Layer* layer containing empty Layer layer(s) will look like the 'folder'. If there is anything in the Layer layer(s) then the thumbnail will look like the item(s) in the Layer layer(s). It is a poorly thought out metaphor and perhaps poorly implemented as well. *Note the Capital L Layer as opposed to the lowercase l layer.
  19. I thought the whole reason for creating this thread is that you didn’t know how to do it! That’s what I described. You mask the top E with a small object that reveals the central prong while hiding the rest of it.
  20. mhh - sat through 3 sessions on the phone with Mac Care - we ran Diagnostics - it said everything was fine. Also when I'm drawing in Rhino, it also has trouble on this machine. So it's a weird situation. You got a new machine that should run super rapid, but instead my 8 year old computer runs almost as fast. Rhino is apparently not good with the M1 chip yet. .. anyhow - that's for another forum. Just a bummer
  21. Sure the download was finished when you tried to open it? Can you show a screenshot of the downloaded file in a Finder window in list view (showing name, date, size and file type column)?
  22. As a newbie, I have another question: what does this graphics on one of my layers' mean? I see some tranparency icon, but I don't find any in this folder. And I see a realistic folder icon which does not appear elswhere in my layers panel… TIA, Tomek
  23. I think the problem is @tigger4t has set the Plugins Search Folders to "/Applications" so it searches everywhere in the Applications folder for anything that is a plugin. So if that just gets changed to whatever folder contains the Topaz plugins, it should not show any of the others. Note that Plugins Search Folders is not the same as Plugins Support Folders, the latter of which can be left as is to search everywhere for plugin support items.
  24. The Pixel layer will retain its original dpi/ppi regardless of the scaling. It is x pixels by y pixels. It may occupy a much smaller area but it is still (say) 1600 x 900. Once you export the document all is changed to the Document's dpi/ppi, image and pixel layers.
