  1. I'm really glad to hear that. We all have always something to learn, let's keep the conversation open I'm sure we can all benefit from that
  2. Then, as a newbie, you should be open to critique, which is what @JohnSnr was doing. You can argue with the critique and don't agree with it which is fine, as long as in a constructive way and with valid arguments, nonetheless getting feedback is the best way to improve. Also, never take for granted that people will respond to what you post: even if it's a short response, it takes time to look at your work and analyze its weakness and strength. In other words, someone paid attention to you, which is a valuable thing.

    Release date estimation

    If you're interested in doing motion graphics, Fusion can be a better solution than DaVinci. Even though Resolve now comes with Fusion, I think it's a limited version (not sure how limited). I tried Fusion a couple of times and it looks really capable, easier than Nuke (which is similar to) and more motion graphics oriented. This forum is full of resources. If you're not focused about working for motion graphics companies than give it a try. Another option could be Hitfilm, but I personally never seriously tried it. Apparently, Cavalry wants to be a real competitor, at least Mainframe is behind it so the premise is solid. Looking at the examples, it does resemble AE quite a lot. That said if your main goal is working doing motion graphics, then there isn't a way around AE. You can even work from home using any other software you feel comfortable with, but the moment you need to share a project you're out of luck.

    AP do NOT accept brush stroke?

    This reminds me of the old good days when I was used to ask to add support to combine multiple layers selections, I remember I felt rather invisible at that time
  5. Nonetheless, the built-in help should work. I don't know if you're on Windows or Mac or if you're running any Affinity beta or official release, what's your default browser and how is configured, etc. All that said, you can try to open your local installed version of the help from this folder (at least on Windows for Affinity Photo beta—I'm running 1.7.209): c:\Program Files\Affinity\Photo Customer Beta\PhotoHelp\Contents\Resources\index.html Or for Designer official release: c:\Program Files\Affinity\Affinity Designer\DesignerHelp\Contents\Resources\index.html You get the idea. You can try opening the index.html with different browsers and see if it works. Maybe a plugin or a script is preventing the HTML to be displayed properly.
  6. Thank you for checking, Chris! Yes, the EXR was working fine, but I ended up exporting the HDR from Photoshop. I'm not in front of my computer right now, I might be wrong, but I think the EXR was heavier. Besides, the client asked HDR maps, so unfortunately in this case I don't have much room for workarounds otherwise I could have used the EXR. I'll try to recreate the steps in order to get a similar result and this time I'll make sure I save the file with all the layers
  7. Hi there, I'm getting some halo on a 32bit hdr document with affinity-photo-customer-beta- This is the original file: I wanted to blur and tweak the color of the two hotspots: It looks fine in Affinity Photo. Then, when imported in Cinema 4D and rendered, I get this: Indeed, checking the HDR in Photoshop reveals some unwanted halos which are not visible in Affinity Photo: Nonetheless, exporting the images as EXR rather than HDR seems to get rid of the halos.
  8. I didn't write "final" though.
  9. Just noticed the new release is available for Mac. Hope the PC version will follow soon
  10. Not possible, the only way to do it is the one you mentioned via spare channels. I have been asking for this for quite some time now, APhoto needs something like PS selections.

    Slow and Unresponsive Photo Document

    @Lauriano Creative If this may make you feel better, I get bad performance with no live filters and just a simple stack of regular layers and a couple of adjustment layers (specs in my signature).
  12. The request is about the full image, I read this as the full document.
