  1. Thank you! Could I also ask if it would be possible to do AD?
  2. Hi Crosby. I'd be interested to hear how you get on with Astropad too - and what pen you are using on the tablet.
  3. Thanks everyone for the input - and the tips! I'm going to be away for two weeks but I'll post an update when I'm back.
  4. Thanks for the suggestion Peter! I switched it to mixture of overlay and lighten mode blending and reduced the opacity a bit to try to bring some of the underlying texture through - an improvement I think but still a way to go. Amongst other things I'd like to be able to apply some radial chipping / scoring to the edges of the engraved lettering but I'm not sure how to go about it. I'm enjoying experimenting though and I have to say that the text on a path tool is a joy to use. My imagination exceeds my skill. I can't see how to attach a file to this reply though. Maybe the morning will bring enlightenment. Edit: Silly me, needed the full editor.
  5. Made using Affinity Designer Beta. Texture tiling and engraved text on two paths. A customer asked me to make this for him. Lots of fiddling left to do, and any suggestions about how to make it look more authentic would be welcome, but I thought I'd post it as my first attempt to use the new text on a path tools. You guys rock. Thank you :-)
  6. Wait... MONDAY!? Ooooh. Anyway, thanks MattP - really looking forward to this
  7. I would find it handy to be able to set the degree of noise consistently (both within and across documents) by applying a parameter to it.
  8. Thanks for explaining. It is great to be able to have an open dialogue with you guys about your applications.
  9. Only illustrator, if I understand correctly. Personally I've mainly used photoshop and the like. Is it really hard to do this with a vector application TonyB?
  10. I'm still having trouble with this and it's starting to spoil my enjoyment of using AD. Using strokes can help, as mentioned above, but only if I make the stroke big enough to extend beyond the original boundary of the shape - and that changes the look and 'clean-ness' of the original geometry. Painting over lots of seams and creating background objects for geometry I've already carefully positioned is becoming a real pain. I could live with it if these were only 'on screen' artefacts but they aren't, they are present in the final rendered image output. Maybe AD isn't intended to be used in an environment where shapes need to be precisely aligned? *sigh* Sadly, I think I'm going to have to stop using it.
