  1. Thanks for the tip, carl! I've never thought much about full-color brushes before. I ended up making my own full-color texture using Stuart_R's amazing Organic Texture Brushes. (See it below.) I ended up with enough coverage that I did not need to make a new brush out of it.
  2. I'd like to create something like this in Designer. (I don't currently own Affinity Photo or have much experience with non-vector based software. However, if these effects can only be achieved in a photo editing program, that would be good to know too.) The example image shows a seamless repeating pattern, but mine does not need to be tile-able. Any techniques, tips, or tools you can recommend? Tutorials I should check out? Thanks much!
  3. Thanks for the help everyone. Thus far I have made progress but come up with another issue which may or may not be Affinity-specific. I received a response from Serif today telling me to simply enter in the DPI I wanted it to export as in 'Use DPI' field of the 'More' export options menu. I've exported and uploaded SVGs with every different export option changed and I end up with the following result (for example): Giving the website a number matching the export DPI option selected in Affinity still results in the above mismatched proof. Disabling the 'Set viewBox' option made things better, but something is still off. Of course this could be an issue with the Game Crafter website as easily as with Affinity (as I've even tried an SVG exported from a friend's copy of Illustrator with similar problems). And I do have a support ticket in with them. But I guess let me know if anything I've posted here gives any of you any more ideas. Thanks again.
  4. Do you know if Affinity uses 96 now as well? This is becoming a bit more complex than I'd expected.
  5. To clarify, the file won't be used as the graphic itself, but as a guide for a laser cutting machine. It has to do with how Affinity defines the size of its 'User Units'. See the guidelines here: http://help.thegamecrafter.com/article/201-custom-punchouts- particularly the 'Notes About SVG' section.
  6. I am using Affinity to create a file that will be used by a laser cutting machine. The vendor needs to know the DPI of the SVG file. I understand that different apps may export SVGs at different DPIs, and while they know the standards for Illustrator and Inkscape, they don't know what DPI Affinity uses. I see some SVG export settings related to DPI of raster images, but I don't think that's what I want. This is an important and time-sensitive job so i want to make sure I get it right the first time. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!
