  1. Hi Guys, I wanted to learn motion graphics but I honestly can't afford to buy both After Effects and Illustrator. After there any motion graphics designers who can share their workflow to me? How do you guys manage to use Affinity Designer and After Effects? Cheers.

    Brush Tool Not Working on Affinity Photo

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B54xlqRSt140NkVDV011aURDNE0/view?usp=sharing Check out the second stroke I try to make, as well as the last 3-4 strokes, the brush jitters to the side and it's really difficult to paint or draw when it happens every 2nd or 3rd stroke. I use a wacom intuos draw tablet and this problem only occurs on Affinity Photo. It turns out it's an issue for both Affinity photo and designer. Edit: Seems like my tablet's fault and not the software. Any suggestions though?
  4. My brush tool on the Mac Affinity Photo doesn't seem to be working very well on . It jitters and jumps around when I try to make fast movements when painting something. I launched Affinity Designer and used the brush tool on that application and everything seems fine on that app. Any help?

    Affinity Photo freezing when I digitally paint

    Mac Affinity Photo, I'm on the Mac OS 10.12.4 and my Affinity Photo is 1.5.2 Thanks for your help.
  6. I'm trying to do portraiture and i constant change between the eye dropper and paintbrush tool and the constant changes in the two tools freezes my affinity photo application and it's really irritating. Any suggestions ? Can this bug be fixed.
  7. I haven't stumbled upon the problem yet... my question was mostly hypothetical, I was just curious since I've been taking a lot of tutorials lately and it got me thinking if incorporating certain styles from published tutorials is acceptable practice.. Yes I have, most designers use the same techniques and if you browse through sites like Dribbble then you'll see identical techniques done by different artists.
  8. It is unfortunate and seems hardly justified to charge so much more for the same product in other countries, especially if it's a digital product. Hopefully affinity move out of the app store and distribute the software themselves like Bohemian did for sketch a few years ago. Same prices across international borders seems to be the most fair thing to do.
  9. Yes my mistake, My store was set to the Australian store and I got charged 79.99, I travel between the two countries and when I returned to NZ, I had accidentally forgot to change stores and got dinged with the extra 5 bucks... I have since changed my store settings to NZ since it seems Australians seem to be 'taxed' more heavily on the App store..
  10. Thanks, that was my concern. It makes sense and I'm glad the general discussion about using techniques learned from tutorials isn't considered plagiarism... I understand this, but I find that copyright has two sides to it - one with the law, which is precise and one with the art community, which is subjective... the latter is more dangerous in my opinion, because if the person calling out an artist as a plagiarist has any degree of influence they can seriously damage the reputation of an artist. In the magic community, we can clearly tell that an act is a copy of someone else's work... card tricks, bunny from hat etc etc... many artists do a variation of the work and profit from it, but most people don't seem bothered by the sameness of the technique. In comedy, having too many jokes similar to other artists, even if the jokes are set up differently, catered for a different audience or transformed from stand up to sketch comedy routines, can easily destroy the reputation of an artist..
  11. Thanks!! That was helpful, i'm gonna make sure to read up on intellectual property laws. Hopefully it'll give me peace of mind :)
  12. No, they are just generic trending styles mainly flat vector illustrations... I've taken some classes online where someone teaches their own style, but when I try to produce it, it looks different because my own style creeps in so the design/illustration becomes unique, yet there are similarities with the teachers work as well... I'm only asking about plagiarism because everyone seems to define it differently. I personally believe that plagiarism is when someone takes another person's idea and claims it as their own, but some people seem to believe that remixing, replicating a style seperate from the subject matter/composition etc, transforming old art into something new etc all can fall under plagiarism as well...
  13. Hi guys, I have a question about art plagiarism - learning and copying from others is important but if you copy too much from an artist, you can be labelled as a plagiarist. I just wanted to know how people here view plagiarism. Let's say I take an online tutorial to learn how to create a specific style of art and reproduce that same style of art but with a different idea, concept or composition... would you consider it plagiarism, especially if you want to produce that work commercially??
  14. Yeah they do work, you just need to find the right format to export from Affinity Designer, I've found sometimes SVG works better and sometimes PDF and other times EPS - I'm not sure why... Then i just clean up layers, label them etc on Illustrator and then export via AI. It's a cost I think is worth paying for if you create a decent portfolio for stock sites, you should be able to get your money back eventually and a profit..
