  1. Thanks for your quick replies ! Actually it seems that DirectX 12 is on.
  2. Hello, I've just realized that on my desktop I wasn't using my GPU in Affinity Photo. Unfortunately I can not set OpenCL acceleration because of incompatible hardware. My actual Windows version is higher than the required version. I've double checked and both Windows 10 and graphic card are up-to-date. My desktop is pretty old but is still powerful enough, especially for photo editing. Here is my config: CPU: i7 860 (4 cores ~3,6GHz) GPU: GeForce GTX 780 (3GB) Ram: 16GB DDR3 Even though the GPU is getting old too, I'm pretty sure it's quite enough for OpenCL feature, as it is equal to my laptop GTX 1660 Ti's performance (which is OpenCL compatible). Is there a way to enable OpenCL anyway ?
  3. Hi everyone, I still wish there were destructive filters (instead of only live ones). But the reason to this post is to find an efficient way to alter a mask layer using filters. Indeed, a trick I often used to do on Photoshop (but also Krita) is to sharpen a mask layer using brightness/contrast or curve filters. As a mask layer is a greyscale pixel matrix, this should be totally possible. A sample of what a curve on a mask layer could produce : I tried to add a filter under a mask layer - it is possible but nothing happens. However, I've just been trying a dynamic filter (blur, sharpen) and it works on a mask layer ! But unfortunately we can't merge the filter it, so we couldn't re-edit the mask layer afterwards with a pencil. It looks like basic filters on mask layer is a feature not implemented, I wish it was ! Especially as it goes along with the dynamic filter working.
  4. This is really great Lagarto, thanks for the help ! However I have this error message when I try to execute your utility: The application to execute does not exist: 'C:\Users\[...]\text2ase\text2ase.dll'. Did you forget to put the library file ? Also when I first attempt to use it, Windows Defender recommended me to analyse it - maybe it blocked it somehow.
  5. I tried it as well as it looks promising, however both Photoshop and Affinity say the file is invalid. How did you make it work ? In the script, function making the ASE content just returns it but doesn't output it to a file, so I've just added a echo before output it to a file : "php ase.php > test.ase".
  6. Hey there everyone, I'm generating color sets so I don't have to add colors in a new palette manually. However I just figured out that a Affinity color palette (.afpalette) is a binary file. Would there be a way to import/convert a palette from any kind of text file (xml, json, etc.) that can be generated ? In comparison Krita does save palette in a custom archive containing text files. Thanks in advance for your help.
  7. No this is not what I meant, and I'm using Windows. Well... no, attached to this message is a sample of what I mean and why your solution would not work : - In Krita, the blur brush somehow spread more and more and the blur intensity is relative to the brush size, thus you have a great blur transition. - I just realized that Photoshop is equal to Affinity in this situation : no matter how strong, how big and how often I use the brush, the blur intensity will remain the same. - Your gaussian blur trick with alpha transition results to a very amateurish blur transition... And no I won't make multiple layers with different gaussian blur sizes on each, it would be damn complicated for nothing - I'd rather open Krita just for that effect and copy-paste it back into Affinity. So it seems there isn't any solution to this ?
  8. No because it won't be a progressive blur, there'd be a "sharp" and "fixed blur" with alpha transition.
  9. Hello ! I'm using the blur brush tool but is there a way to increase/decrease it's strength (like increasing a gaussian blur size), because in 4K resolution it's too light. And of course I tried changing the brush size/flow/strength but even at 100% it's not enough. Thanks in advance for your help.
  10. Alright, great news ! I finally found a way to alter the screen colors without using any profile. On Surface Book devices, it's not the graphic card nVidia which handle the colors, it's the integrated graphics from Intel. Thus you just have to install the Intel Graphics app from the Windows store : https://www.microsoft.com/store/productId/9PLFNLNT3G5G Thanks again for the help !
  11. Hmm so this is an issue from the OS then. I do have the Surface Book 3, and it looks alike the link you've posted. Thanks for the share ! I should try to get back the color management from nVidia's control panel rather than using Windows color profiles.
