  1. One of the oldest illustrator (and Freehand) tools and essential for abstraction and logo development I would say.


    blending along a path - Awesome - I still see little lights go on in the brains of my degree students when I show them that


    I can see how it would be overlooked in the age of the super smooth gradients which is what the blend tool was there to do but its a lot more than that.


    Any chance Designer will get more in the way of vector based filtering, roughen/ rumble pucker bloat etc.?

  2. I use illustrators Live trace to create abstract images from multiple auto traces of the same image with variation changes to the settings - the final result is interesting, experimental and never looks like an auto traced image.


    If I do a sketch and auto trace it I use the line envelope and width tools with maybe the roughen filter set set below .9 to add digital noise to the stoke - auto trace is just a starting point.

  3. Will there be any kind of plug-in or scripting architecture?


    I loved and still do love scriptographer - but Adobe were forever breaking it to the point where the developer gave up trying to support it. It had a mass of innovative user created tools.

    Would be great to see this type of more abstract tools finding a home in Affinity.




    Great app so far!


    will definitely be buying it and recommending to my students
