  1. For fonts management I advice you to use dedicated software like NexusFont or FontBase. Both free and offering much more then you will ever see inside of design software (which would be really just bloating it). Whats best in these managers - you don't have to install fonts in system - as long as the font manager is running system sees them as installed. So you dont bloat your system by installing hundreds of fonts, you can keep everything tidy and organized. Both are working great with Affinity.
  2. Theres so many new things added that all I wish for 1.7 is to be out of Beta. There will be plenty of time for new things before we hit 2.0.
  3. Here is crazy idea. Since nobody really cares about your coding classes here (and most definitely they will not start re-writing Affinity package because random dude on internet thinks they should) - why don't we just concentrate on apps and leave the coding to the coders who are making them? ----------------------------- Personally I cant wait till GPU acceleration hits Windows version. I know its a lot of work, I know its complicated because of multiple hardware variations etc. I'll wait but I am eager to see it and I hope work is being done on it (well now you are probably fixing 1.7 but hope it is planned anyways). I don't care if you write it in Basic or Logo - as long as it works. And if it doesnt? Hey, you can always ask some random dude on internet. They know best.

    Yeeeesss Afinity.. You did it.. !!!

    @Tom Schülke I mostly made product viz so not so many changes as usually I am given final design to visualize. Even if I have to place something in the room for context (like when making furniture for example) I never had so many changes. But yeah - in my case my favorite are messages like "this red oak is not exactly the color I am looking at here" . I hope Affinity will bring with time some life improvements for 3D people. So far so good

    @Tom Schülke Now I know what you mean by saying in other thread that Photo is slow with many layers Man, I had some quite populated layer trees but you just obliterated me Are you having each leaf on separate layer or what? Nice work btw! Also - considering line of work you are doing (3D), maybe you have some trick how to use z-depth pass to drive DOF in Photo? I think its impossible now but not sure...

    Ah, good old "starts discussion - doesn't have an counter-argument - claims doesn't have time to "explain" and has better things to do anyways" case. @hifred I am not talking about Adobe from "many years ago". I am talking about Adobe today. I loved Photoshop for years. And there's really nothing except Affinity that can replace it. In some cases (like using z-depth pass to drive DOF) there is no real alternative at all. And if Affinity disappeared I would be back to Photoshop. Hating on Adobe Hopefully there will be no need for that. @Tom Schülke Surely it depends on what you do. And I would suspect that lack of GPU support under windows can be an issue. Photoshop has it and I remember HUGE difference it made when it was implemented in Photoshop for the first time. I was working on big format printing at the time - 8-10 meters wide and good 4 meters high. It was amazing change - basically making possible work on something that before was too laggy... I would imagine GPU usage in Affinity will do something similar.

    This could open to some new, possible clients. I know quite a few artists that are madly in love with ZBrush and Photoshop is just necessity for them. If they could compose in Photo that could be a selling point to them. And if Photo could also deal with Depth Of Field driven by Z-Map that would be wonderful.

    Ow no, this is not for painting in Affinity. This is to get different passes rendered in ZB to further compose in Affinity.

    This is your argument?.. Maybe try to point out what of what I say is not true..? I don't know if you noticed but I don't say "Photoshop sucks". I say "ADOBE SUCKS". Big time. "Many people are using it" is not an argument. Many people are dining in McDonald - that doesn't make it good restaurant. @myclay Yeah, this is the plugin I thought about - so helpful... I think it was developed by Joseph Drust on Pixologic side. Knowing how bloody lazy Adobe became... They didnt do it It would certainly require knowledge of ZBrush too. In description of the plugin it says "Plugin uses ExtendScript *.JSX files to transfer data to Photoshop. *.JSX files must be set to open with Photoshop for the process to work correctly.". I have no idea if Affinity has a way of dealing with *.JSX files or has anything similar to offer. But if some developer is reading it - just an idea. I know you guys have lot on your plates as it is. But this sort of plugin for Affinity Photo could help a LOT. Personally I would promote the heck out of it in 3D crowd.

    I am ZBrush guy (man, if I could only see some ZB to Affinity plugin that would absolutely kick ass... I guess thats on Pixologic though...) but 3DCoat always looked very interesting. I wonder what they will show in 5.0... I bought both Photo and Designer little over 2 years ago. Never missed Photoshop or Illustrator. Sure, some little things that Adobe has are very useful but overall experience is much better with Affinity for me. Affinity knows what software they are making - are focused. Adobe lost the way, they want bit of everything. Photoshop has already useless 3D, movie editing 3D printing.. They were talking about voice commands too. At this point I would not be surprised if they add some music maker to Photoshop too Its so bloated that just Photoshop installer takes more space then both Photo and Designer. And I loved that software... I was so excited when new Photoshop was coming, back at version 4, 5... Adobe just killed that excitement and luckily Affinity decided to come to Windows. And for what I see Affinity is growing nicely. Last two years with them was a pleasure! Get your copy and lets celebrate that 1.7 soon together

    It was quite funny when some time ago, before this thread I heard that Windows version has no GPU acceleration yet. I have quite old CPU and everything works smooth as butter. Sure, I can hear fans on CPU going busy when working It will be so cool to get GPU acceleration on Windows too! Now, when Adobe bought Allegorithmic I am kind of sure that they will screw it up and bloat Photoshop further instead of making the best from absolutely fantastic, Substance software they bought. Surely Adobe has some great devs working there, but people who make decisions seems to be absolute idiots (who think 3D printing integration is what Photoshop needed and trying to make everything overly easy, simple, drag and drop, voice command etc). So meanwhile, when Adobe decision taking people will be hard at work, figuring out how to bloat Photoshop up and slow down development of Substance - I hope Affinity team will bring us GPU usage on their lean-mean software package for windows. Good luck PS REALLY cant wait for 1.7. I mean... I can and will but damn it will be nice to get update for Affinity little package . Well, back to Photo..
  12. I used "professional, industry standard, oh-oh-so-the-best" Photoshop and Illustrator for over 20 effing years. All my grown up life I am making a living designing stuff. So if this is not professional use of software then I don't know what is I tried Affinity as soon as beta showed for Windows. I bought it soon after. After month of working on it I ditched Photoshop and Illustrator. I dont need it, simple as that. Designer and Photo fully replaced both of these ow-so-perfect-if-you-are-not-using-these-youre-not-a-pro aplications. And when I hear people crying about such silly little things as a shortcut then I think to myself - youre shouldn't be allowed to even mention professionalism if default shortcut is stopping you from working. Some people are just unable to switch, looking for excuses, giving some silly explanations. You dont want to use Affinity software? Then don't. But by claiming that Affinity isn't pro enough you are making YOURSELF look silly. I am immediately starting to think about this old saying "a bad workman blames his tools". It sounds like "I cant hammer this nail because look at this - my hammer is blue now. Can you imagine? How it can be blue? I had pink one for years and it worked perfectly. Plus this one has a rounded head! Not squared! This is ridiculous, such luck of professionalism! Give me back my pink, square headed hammer, I cant deal with it". Silly, ridiculous nonsense. Sorry had to say that. Crack on
