  1. Thanks
    Pierrick got a reaction from Michael Bobarev in time-lapse making-of video's of directly in Affinity.   
    Agree. The unlimited history is fantastic for making offs.
     
    Another way to do it:
    1/ Quicktime > New Screen Recording
    2/ Go to the beginning of your history
    3/ Hold ⇧⌘Z  all the way back.
    Voilà! Direct to video.

    Pierrick reacted to nwhit in very slow since update to 1.7.0   
    As per my other post on the newest beta speed improvements, with the new 1.7.2 betas, my speed is massively faster than 1.6.x or 1.7.1. And that's processing 24MP RAW 3-bracket HDR merging, tone mapping, plus other touch-up tools, then custom export. 
    High Sierra, iMac 2017 i5, Radeon Pro 580 8192 MB, Metal display and compute.
    Cleared up the slowness with the 1.7.2 betas and made it significantly faster than 1.6.7. In fact, too fast for me to even get some coffee drinking done while I work!   (I typically do several hundred of these RAW develop/merge/tone map/touch up/exports a day, so am very familiar with typical speeds.)

    Pierrick reacted to m-b in very slow since update to 1.7.0   
    With enabled 'Metal Compute' I get the worst performance on my system. The whole software gets massive slowdowns. Terrible stutters in zooming and moving a picture and in rendering and set live-effects.
    If I deactivate it, it makes no matter if I choose Metal or OpenGL, both runs relativly smooth, whitout stuttering and slowdowns.
    I hoped that 1.7 gets a performance boost, but sadly not on my system.

    I think you could get a better zoom-out animation, centered on your character, by going Z then ALT-click. Or even Z and drag-right.

    Sure!
     
    It's pretty easy:
     
    1) Create a new Intensity brush form Brushes Studio palette
    2) Use a PNG picture as starting nozzle (use this one for example)
     

     
    3) Form Brush editing palette use these settings
     

     
    4) In Dynamics these...
     

         
    And you're done!
    I do prefer Pixel Tool because turns anti-alias off and delivers gritty results, but it is pretty usable even with brush tool.
    Flow variation helps to simulate pencil hardness.

    I really like the app(s) at first glance. I wished for years to have an adobe alernative. Being a professional Photoshop user I gained really deep skills and there is hardly a shortcut I don't know. IMHO: I'm among many Photoshop Pros - If you want to win us it would be a very good idea to have the same shortcuts as far as it goes.
     
    Tasks like:
    option+backspace and cmd+backspace for filling an element/selection with forgroudn/background-colour
    cmd+click on a layer o select it
    cmd+click onto new layer icon to make a new layer underneath the active one
    option+draw to draw from center (instead of cmd as in affinity products)
    ...
     
    are not only convenient - they're the real MVP, they're lifesavers, holidaymakers
     
    Please consider approaching them (also in Affinity designer vs. Illustrator) - you might want to consider a preference-setting: "use Photoshop shortcuts and keystrokes".
     
    I am sure you are going to gain much more people that way.
     
    Kind regards and thanks.

    Pierrick reacted to magicmarker in Fill Alpha Channel in Affinity Photo   
    Thanks for the help everyone!
    I understand that I'm using Photo in a slightly unorthodox way.  
     
    I have been using the paintbrush & "protect alpha" mode, but to save time I was looking for an "locked pixels/alpha channel" fill method. Sometimes it's just easier to fill in a large area, rather than manually paint it. 
     
    It's actually helpful to hear that there is no such feature at this time, so I can stop hunting around looking for it.
     
    I'm curious about the Fill layer method that Pierrick mentioned though, I will explore that.

    Pierrick reacted to magicmarker in Fill Alpha Channel in Affinity Photo   
    Hi All!
     
    I too am making the leap from Adobe to Affinity. I use Photo from an illustration perspective, working with scanned-in drawings, removing the white backgrounds, and then going crazy cutting things out, resizing, arranging, coloring, etc. 
    It's been great so far, just getting used to where things are in Affinity Photo. 
     
    My question here is:
     
    I see how one can paint an alpha channel only (equivalent to locking pixels on a layer in PS), but how do you bulk fill an alpha channel (i.e. locked pixels) on a layer?
     
    In PS, you can select the layer (with locked pixels), choose a color, and either select "fill"from the drop-down menu, or "option/command-delete". 
    Does anyone know the equivalent in Affinity Photo?
     
    I hope that makes sense!
     
    Thanks in advance!
