    JFisher reacted to DWright in Relevant hardware components for Affinity software (PC)   
    Hi aempress,
     
    I recommend building your PC to the requirements of your video editing software as this will require the highest level of hardware and this will be above the recommended  Affinity software requirements.
     
    Personally if I was building a Pc for video and photo editing I would use the following spec
     
    Intel i5 3.2Ghz
    32Gb RAM
    fast SSD for Windows
    1 or 2 Tb hybrid HDD for data storage
    Nvidia 1050 or AMD 560 video card

    Hi rainwilds

    Affinity only relies on the GPU for drawing to the screen. Most of the processing is done by the CPU. 

    See this post for more information :)

    Hi octavian,

    at the moment the best method would be to use Macros with Batch Processing. Check out this tutorial.

    Also, you could save Adjustments presets to reuse. Once you have made the Adjustments you would like to save in the Develop Persona you can use the presets drop down to save your adjustments as a new preset. 

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Marius78,

    There's no option to export directly to Lightroom, so you'll need to export the file as PNG/JPEG and then import into Lightroom.

    Hi everyone. 

    This is something that has been requested before and maybe included in a future update, but at the moment the file won't save to original folder. the destination folder will need to be selected manually. 

    I'll move this post to the Feature Requests section.

    Hi Mr. K. 

    This isn't possible at the moment but has been requested in the past. We'll look to add an option to set defaults in a future update. :)

    Hi Johnperrydk

    Welcome to the forum.

    We have no ETA for Publisher just yet i'm afraid. Once Affinity Publisher is ready for beta we will make an announcement letting everyone know and where can sign up to beta test.

    Hi,

    This should show up in the Draw Persona for you. Try clicking View > Studio > Colour while in the Draw Persona and it should reappear.

    Hi AspiringMCC
     
    Welcome to the forums!
     
    The Inpainting tool does work on the trial version, make sure you have the correct layer selected in the Layers panel, then try the Inpainting Brush Tool again.

    We have plans to release Affinity Designer for iPad in the future which would be ideal for drawing and illustration but we have no ETA on this just yet.

    Hi Jackamus.

    Sorry for the delay getting back to you!
     
    It is not possible to save the workspace unfortunately, you can only make a back up of what is held in the Application Support folder. I have provided the path below.

    /Users/***/Library/Containers/com.seriflabs.affinitydesigner.beta/Data/Library/Application Support/

    Replace the files that you will find in that location with what will be shown after installing the latest beta.

    Hi MD2

    Welcome to the forum

    You should find that Affinity Designer is a great alternative to DrawPlus, have you tried downloading the trial at all? With regards to a PagePlus alternative, we are in the process of developing Affinity Publisher, which we hope to have in beta later this year.

    More information can be found here.

    Welcome to the forum

    This tutorial explains how to add a motion blur effect, you can use the eraser tool to deselect certain areas of the image to preserve the car.

    With the Selection Brush Tool
    Using a small brush (14px) go around all the outside of the man. Don't worry about the middle of the man, you can do that later with a bigger brush
    Go slowly, as the faster you go the less accurate the tool is.
    If you select outside the man, just continue as you will come back later to redo these areas.
    Once you have selected all the outside of the man, change to a smaller brush (6px), switch the Selection Brush Tool to Subtract and slowly go over the areas outside the man that you accidently selected previously.
    Once you are happy you have selected all the outside of the man you can switch to a larger brush, switch the Selection Brush Tool back to Add and quickly select all the inner parts of the man.
    Then hit the Refine button and (in this case) set the Smooth slider to 4.5px
    The main point is that in areas of low colour difference use a small brush to do the edges first, nice and slowly.
    Tip: In areas where it is almost impossible to see the difference where one object ends and another begins, adding a temporary Brightness/Contrast adjustment layer and adjusting the contrast can help define these areas better.  Making the selection process easier. Just delete this layer afterwards

    JFisher reacted to stokerg in White background around Circle after EPS export   
    Hi Damogran,
     
    This is down to the EPS file format.  You've added a layer effect which the EPS format just can't display without putting the white there.  If you turn this effect off, you'll see it exports just fine.  To export it with the effect, you can export it as an SVG or PDF and it will look as designed.
