  1. Oh....I think there is a value for a time lapse......at least I enjoy watching them.... and yes, it's time for coffee, What brand are you drinking?
  2. Got word back from iShowU tech support and I just needed to disable “ colour correction” in the preferences to eliminate the problem of over saturation. It worked! Th color on the video generated through iShowU is even better than the image that I am painting. iShowU now works like a charm.
  3. Thanks OlaHaldor for your offering, I will check it out. I have noticed that iShowU software (just started using it) generates over saturated color movies through all the possible export settings , not what I want. I can make color corrections in iMovie.. but just extra work and time. Just ran OBS and it has an upper limit size of 2560 x1440 to capture the base canvas Monitor size... Regrettably, this doesn't work for a 5 K iMAC as the image is severely truncated.

  4. There could be a simple solution that would maintain the "share your work" forum framework. Presently, when you mouse over one of the title topics, after somewhat of long wait, a second floating window appears to reveal the top portion of the actual post. Depending on how the post is composed, the floating window shows some combination of text and/or image. All the webmaster has to do is write some code so that a thumbnail of first image in the post shows up adjacent to the title of the post on the "share your work" page. The thumbnail's position could replace the current dot or bullet point. On seeing thumbnails located on the "share your work" page , the viewer will then have a better idea of what the post is about and whether or not to open the post or move on the the next post.

    These are brilliant photos Patrick.! congratulations !
  7. Yes, probably " all in good time is Serif's motto" After all ,they are working on beta versions of AP & AD and are working on launching "publisher" soon. A redesigned " gallery page" as you suggest, would bring extra traffic to their site and give more exposure to the software solutions.
  8. Thanks v_kyr for your info. Looks like my version of Camtasia is so old that it doesn’t have those kind of input capture settings. thanks for your recommendation about hustl. I have started using IShowU and am very happy with it’s robustness and functionality. Are programmers the only ones to use underscores in their name/alias ?
  9. Yes the gallery app looks like a fine solution! Whether Serif has the time /interest or resources to deal with this upgrade is the question.
  10. UPDATE. So I " recorded" a test painting with the method fo making snap shots of the process as it developed, then made a QT recording of the event by enabling the snap shots in sequence . It did produce a somewhat artificial looking time lapse effect but nothing near the time lapse effect that I am looking for. I have downloaded and played with iShowU software and this is just what I am looking for. Produces really great Time lapse QT or MP4 movies.
  11. Artstation looks like a fabulous place for artists and of course Instagram (which appears to take years to build any kind of following) Then there is CG society and Deviant Art ( which is poorly designed and needs a major overhaul. I will probably cancel my acct there.) As you suggest , in time Affinity forums could become more robust..
  12. I did hesitate initially about posting the request to overhaul the "share your work forum" as I would rather that Serif focus in on perfecting their software but having said that, it would be nice to "see" what people are doing....sketching or polished work in a thumbnail UI rather then "reading" titles in a text based UI. Thanks Garry P for the spotlight link... definitely a curated environment. Perhaps a thumbnail UI for Share you work forum would encourage more traffic and participation of the end users. Right now I wonder if it is really worth my time to post there?
  13. Affinity photo is such a great tool and I would like to see an image/ thumbnail based UI for the Share your work portion of this forum. Right now with the text based forum presentation, it doesn't really lend itself to browsing , in my option. A richly, decorative page with the current thumbnails of images created by the users would be very attractive and would invite more participation within the share your work forum. Your thoughts would be appreciated. see attachments.
