  1. If it's just a simple video editor, then it's just as well that it doesn't get made. There are plenty of those already. However, if it is fully integrated with Designer, Photo, and Publisher with Studio Link then I am all ears. It would open up all different kinds of animation techniques like vector, raster, pixel, and more. It would be like a mix of Flash/Animate, Photoshop, and After Effects all rolled into one package. Personally I am interested in an After Effects styled workflow with vector animation to create UI prototypes and pixel frame by frame animation. I know some people like to use Photoshop to clean up and colour rough animation, so having Affinity do the same would be a nice addition.
  2. @MurfeeI appreciate it! Have been able to create some pretty nice macros now thanks to your help. Might share them at some point once I feel like they are tried and tested. 🥳
  3. Thank you, that actually worked! It was so confusing since all the fill options are named the same and have the exact same options in the Macro panel. My report should be probably rebranded as a UI/UX issue rather than a bug of the features themselves.
  4. Was trying to create a macro for cleaning up a selection and filling it with colour. While doing so, I noticed that Fill had an option to allow the change of colour of the fill when you activated it. However, when I finally tried it out, it did not work at all. Then I noticed that the Colour panel was overriding the macro option by filling it with the colour currently set as the primary. Desktop 2020.04.05 -
  5. Was trying to make a shortcut for Select Sampled Colour by keybinding it to A. However, Photo crashed when I pressed the key. The feature works when you just click on it in the menu. Desktop 2020.04.05 -
  6. Would be nice if they added different rendering options when transforming like in Photoshop. In the meantime I would suggest using Resize Document and increase the size of the canvas with Nearest Neighbour activated.
  7. Seems to work, thanks! I tried to compare the two and they seem to work just about the same. Still, the current behaviour of the Refine macro is really odd to say the least.
  8. Because of the very uneven results produced by the Lasso tool that prevent you from creating smooth selections, I was trying to create a clean-up macro that would allow me to fix the selection with Refine and Smooth slider. However, when trying to reuse this macro in practice, it just duplicates the original lasso selection which makes it extremely impractical to work with. In my honest opinion, I wish that the Lasso tool had some sort of automatic smooth algorithm applied after every new selection to fix these problems so I wouldn't need to try and do this. Doesn't help that Refine doesn't remember your user settings. Desktop 2020.04.05 -
  9. Thanks, that's exactly what I wanted! ^-^ Still, I made a feature request to add Divide to Affinity as well. Just to make things easier. 🥳
  10. I want to see an After Effects/animation tools hybrid where you can get a timeline for all Affinity products and the ability to animate things like vectors, raster, and adding camera and layer effects like After Effects. I am personally interested in animating pixel art and UIs, which would be pretty convenient to do inside of Affinity instead of porting stuff over.
  11. I just posted a question about a Photoshop tutorial I watched today and came to the realisation that Affinity lacks the Divide option. I got some help to try and replicate this workflow, but it wasn't really enough to fully replicate the practicality of having just a single layer and Divide dealing with the rest. It would be much appreciated if the devs added this to Affinity as well. : )
  12. @smadellThanks for the help! I tried it and it works okay on images with only one layer. However, with several layers it becomes way too cumbersome to apply to every area. I guess we just have to ask the devs to add it in, since it could be pretty handy to have from time to time. : )
  13. Just saw this video where you use the Photoshop layer Divide to neutralise the colours of an image. Couldn't find any layer setting named Divide, so wanted to ask if Affinity has something similar to it?
  14. @Jowday Me neither. When I first started using it I found it a bit jarring that Affinity had all these great features already in place, but of some reason they were stuck in really awkward places despite having the infrastructure to support a more efficient workflow. The devs have become better at fixing little UX problems with 1.7 and 1.8, but there is still a bunch of room for improvement. I hope Serif will do a thorough review of all their tools in the toolbar for Photo at some point as well, since I can think of more than a few tools that could really need some extra polish to make them pretty much perfect for any project. Most of the stuff I can think of they already have implemented in some form in the software, they just need to deal with some of those little UX annoyances that break workflow. For example, the Brush tool colour picker and the actual Colour Picker tool are two separate tools in Affinity, with the alt version not being possible to edit. The Colour Picker tool actually has some really good features like Current Layer colour picking and Radius, but because the Brush tool doesn't use the settings of the other tool, we're stuck with the baseline version when working for the most part. Not very practical to switch to the Colour Picker tool every time you want to sample from your painting or image. I'm thinking of writing a more thorough review of Affinity Photo's tool set at some point that I hope the devs read and consider. It would make Affinity feel so much better. : )
  15. I know the P.S. is a feature request, but since it I was talking about the Crop tool already I didn't feel like making a new thread for just that small comment. The reason I put it as a bug report was because the freehand crop feature felt very inconsistent with how the Crop tool normally behaves. It only works on your very first cropping action and if you use up that first action, the Crop tool stops you from doing it freehand style. It just feels so strange having to reset the tool every time just for doing this. Having a mouse shortcut would certainly make it more consistent and less confusing.
