  1. Thanks VerySame! Here's an example brush BTW, notice how different it looks like in Photoshop vs affinity - Neil test2.zip
  2. Rotation Jitter: >> So by this definition it sounds as though we should set the behaviour of PS's Off to Random on import. I'll get it >> reported to development. It may be a bit more complex, it should probably be set to random only if the Angle jitter is a none zero value. But thanks for passing it along. Size Jitter: That's an odd one. So looks like in photoshop, if you set it to Pen Pressure, but use the mouse, it will use "random" as default. Would it make sense to set something up similar in Affinity where stuff like Size jitter, angle jitter, etc defaults to random if you're using the mouse, even though the affinity interface will say "Pen Pressure" and will react that way if you're using a pen? - Neil
  3. I am working on importing a bunch of brushes from Photoshop to Affinity, and I'm finding a lot of them reacting quite differently. Most of the issue seem to be around how the texture is being applied, in photoshop, there's a bunch of different modes, and Affinity only has 3 modes. Any chance of getting these other modes added so we can get parity with the brushes? - Neil
  4. I would probably use it less for adjustment layers, but sure, I can see the advantage of that too. - Neil
  5. Here ya go. - Neil test.zip
  6. because it stretches your image WHILE you are drawing the stroke, which allows for instant feedback. Stretching an image along a path has its uses too, if you have a situation where its something more machine like, but that technique is more like a careful construction project, this tool would be far more interactive and better for organic painting. Like if I'm doing 200 tree branches, I'd hate to carefully setup 200 paths first, instead I want to paint the paths and have the bark grow along my stroke as I go so I can instantly evaluate if I'm achieving the effect I want. - Neil
  7. So I've taken some of my photoshop brush abr files and imported them into affinity. In Affinity, I'll look at a brush that say has size jitter, and the size isn't jittering. If I go into the brush settings, I'll see that it has a size jitter of 50%, but the dropdown beside size jitter is set to "none", when it should be set to "random". Set it to random and now the brush behaves the same way as photoshop. Looks like the abr importer isn't always properly importing the "random" value from photoshop. Can you confirm this? - Neil
  8. Also controls for where the mirror line is on your document would be super helpful, so you could place it vertical, horizontal or at any arbitrary angle, and placed anywhere on the image. - Neil
  9. Yes, All it does is stretch the image. In the image above, it's using the stretched image to make a bump map, but it doesn't need to be used for that, it can easily just be used to make a 2d paint stroke. Think of a combination between a paint brush and the liquify tool. - Neil
  10. Sometimes you want a mask to affect multiple layers, and the layers are in radically different parts of your layer stack, making grouping those layers impossible. It would be great if you could instance a mask between layers, so you apply the mask to layer 1, then apply the same mask to layer 2, and if you modify either mask, its instanced version is modified as well. - Neil
  11. When you say a mirrored brush, do you mean a brush that when you paint on one side of the canvas, it also paints on the other side symmetrically? - Neil
  12. Would love a Roll brush in affinity photo, which is a brush where your custom brush shape is deformed along the stroke curve. Here's a video of the Zbrush "Roll Brush"... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eY2_EPG-zWY This is similar to the "Angle Jitter -> Direction", except this feature only rotates the custom brush along the stroke direction. The Roll brush actually deforms the stamp in that direction. This would let you create stuff like stitches on clothing, tentacles, texture on a tree branch, wires, all sort of things that are currently not possible. - Neil
  13. Ah, sorry, my wish was for Affinity Photo. So please add the feature in there :) - Neil
  14. Summary: Would really love to see a cutout filter for affinity, just like the one in photoshop. See image below. Usage: Quite frequently I am asked to take a photographic image and blend it into a more graphic image, one that has a very limited color palette where shades of color are defined by 2d shapes. Using the cutout filter, I can take that photo and give it that more graphic look, and then paint on top of the result to get the final image way faster than painting the entire image in a 2D graphic style from scratch. Thanks. - Neil
  15. Summary: Would love to see the ability to color code layers with a set of premade colors. This would affect the Layers UI, not the image itself. Usage: A great way of organizing layers. I can color code all my text layers Blue, all my painted layers Red, some special effects layers green. Then when I am trying to find those layers inside a 300 layer file, it's easier to find them then by name alone. Thanks! - Neil
