    Yes..  and by the way..  
    Cryptomatte was develloped from a company, using Blender  that  had to compose massive stuff for the netflix animation film "Next Gen." It was the first time that Blender could proove, it is capable to produce featuere length animations. So while i am a Veteran 3Ds Max User,  i  get more and more impressed from Blender.  
    "Tangent Animation" the company who did this film, develloped Cryptomatte,  and because The whole idea of Blender is Comunity they gave it Back to the comunity..
    Thats why so many Renderengines and Video Compositing Tools do have it now.. 
    But i dont know any Image Editing Software that can use Cryptomatte..   So  Serif...  that would be your Chance..

    Hi Everyone,
    Maybe this is someting widely out of mainstream Wishes in Affinity Photo..  But maybe, maybe there are many other 3D Artists out there, that would like to see this..   So .. What do i wish..
    I Would very much appreciate   "Cryptomatte"    its a fileformat, engeneered for Rendered images in 3D Programes, that have to simulate Reality..       In this FREE available File Format, all the conted of a 3D Rendering automatically produces Masks, and Channels for selectiing   "All" available Contend of the rendering...   all objects  you want, all materials,  What ever you need.
    Point is, this process to produce all needed masks beforehand in 3D Applications was extremly cumbersome , slow , uggly...     But, now we have     CRYPTOMATTE...     Even Adobe hasnt got it..

    Dear Develloper from Serif... if you would like to get all the 3D People on your Boat,.  .. implement it to Affinity Photo.   Even Adobe lucks of it. So this would be a great feature...
    The following youtube video, shows how Vray one of the most advanced Rendersystems for 3ds max and also many other 3D Packages makes use of this format, which is.... As said free available.

    Yes.  I allready installed 2.8 after seeing the incReadible Preview of  the 2.8 Viewport.. 
    Eevee is realy  a great tool as a viewport realtime rendersystem and also for many toon like renderings, that doesnt need photoreralistic  Vray irradiance cache light transport scattering wavelength baseed.... you name it..   algorithms..
    The new interface also looks good.  But still the shortcuts feel like a bomb exploded in them.    The Modifier Stack isnt as advanced as max modifier stack, but does the job..  But we´ll see what  "everything nodes" will deliver to us.. esp. becaus modifier nodes maybe will implement modelling options, max could only dream of..  hope so.. 
    Arr... have to stop here.. its not a  Blenderr forum...
    But cryptomatte would be nice... in Affinity.

    Yeah, cryptomatte in Photo would be really awesome. Since it already supports OpenEXR Multilayer, this would be the missing feature for 3D Post. I can build some kind of own cryptomatte with Material IDs in Blender, but thats cumbersome. Cryptomatte would make my life so much easier.

    Tom Schülke got a reaction from Alex_M in What's your top three pragmatic 1.7 wishlist?   
    1.  easy to do  and allready halfway implemented:       shortcut to deselect pixelmasks from the Layerstack...   affinity allready put in the short cut to cmd+shift+lmb click on a Layericon to select  ! Additive !   like in Photoshop layer masks.  So you dont have to add them one by one in the spare channels... 

    but to deselect from a selecttion the shortcut is still missing..
     
    2. embedd linked pdf files, but give the option to link the rasterised version also whithout loosing the link to the original pdf file...  this would ease the workflow for thousends of Architects..  they never need the option to tweek single lines in theire floreplan CAd to pdf prints, they import to photo...   its just done by far easier inside the cad applicatieon...  but still an imported pdf from  a  cad file  should be linked not only embeded, also when it is rasterised.
     
    3. still speedimprovements for large documents needed...  here photoshop still excels over affinity photo..   dont know wasnt it told, affinity is still working on gpu speed booosts ?

    Tom Schülke reacted to Michael117 in Is it possible to package a project in Publisher?   
    A couple of thoughts---
    When did Quark and ID add this functionality to their applications?  Was it available in the first release? MEB has said that this is on the roadmap; it's just not in the first release of the application. It's not possible to deliver a first release product that has all the bells and whistles of competitive products that have been developed for years.   Just about everyone on this board has a feature or function they perceive as critical and want it in the product now.  That's just not possible with the limited resources that Affinity has. Let's give the team time to finish off what's in the pipeline for this first release and then they can start looking at the roadmap for future enhancements. Oh, and they have two other excellent products that are going to be updated so that they are all on the same base engine as Publisher.

    By the way !
    i just tried it...  it works..    bind all footage into your document...  bring it to another pc..   and say   "make linked"   now publisher asks you for the folder of the linked footage for your document...   and          tadaaaaa.....     saves it to those location..
     
    only wird thing is..    filesice doesent change after saving the document that now is linked...   at my case it stayed at about 970 MB..  and didnt change filesice even when the footage was saved to another folder... 
    any ideas about this ?  is that a bug ?

    The Big advantage of Packaging is, that you
    can find all used Content, wherever it is on your Network, and the Packagingprocess sorts out all unessesair Content that you have put to your Contentfolder but didn´t use in your final layout..  When you Package a Dokument and send it to a partner ore collegue using also afinnity publisher,  either way, you need to send many data to him..  from filesize there wouldn´t be a big differenze if you put the used content to a folder or if you embed the content to your afpublisher Document.
    So i would suggest to embedd all the used contend to your document and send it this way..  But i would suggest a further Feature here !!!
     
    using the embedded objects in the Ressource Manager..  give us the option to Export the embedded Content to a Folder we point to !
     
    This of course wouldnt work when exporting to idml format which also is essential for many companys that work together with external partners..  My Architecural Company does this all the time ..  sharing indesign documents or idml formats with for example the greenplaners..    So i assure you we need this workflow..
    I dont know how afpubisher would handle the export of idml files and the packaging of content when it will support idml..  i hope they find a good solution for this..

    Tom Schülke got a reaction from elmonopascual in I wished that.....   
    i get a easier information about guides...

    Right now i only can get precise informations about the position of guides when i use the guides manager..
    But why not also using the Transform Palette ?  when i hover over a guide, it could give me the position of a guide. Just as it does in indesign, when i cklick an guide..
    Only thing i am not sure about  is how i would do this, when a guide comes from a masterpage, and so is dotted.. in this case, it couldnt be selected in the page..
    Never the less, get better information about guides would be appreciated..

    Tom Schülke got a reaction from Alfred in Import InDesign files   
    Well as you said, you dont know the idml format ?   This a is format that Indesign can export also to alow transfer of documents in differing indesign programms..   I used this some time to get documents from a more advanced indesign version to an older one, and it worked nearly perfect.
     
    So to say..   IDML would be enough as an import format.   BUT !!!!
    We also need the possibility to export Publisher Formats to IDML..  this is very much needed, because very often we have to cooperate with the outer world..  and the outer World is dominated by evil     
    So please also make export of idml possible..
    I Think most of us wouldnt have considered to look at Affinity photo too, if it hadnt been able to import and also export psd files..

    I propose that the menu option be called "Perform Evil Export..."
    That way all of the problems that come up in the exported file should be excused since the export was evil to begin with and thus cannot be trusted.

    For long time InDesign (and Quark) user this program is dead in the water if it cannot open InDesign files. Its a shame as I am making the switch from Adobe to Affinity in the Photo and Designer programs and this would have completed my switchover. Graphic designers will have many long and complex InDesign files that have to be periodically updated, it is folly to think we will abandon these complex files and start from scratch with Affinity Publisher. Affinity needs to think again.

    Tom Schülke reacted to MickRose in Pages panel initial view   
    When I first open Publisher & create a 20 page document I get a grid view in the pages panel and "small"  is ticked in the Page options. The visible label on all the pages from 10 to 19 is the same. If I change the option to Medium or Large and then back to Small I get a linear view which is much more usable.

    If I change the Pages panel width I can get this.

    I think the Pages Panel needs a bit of work on it. But this a minor niggle on what's looking like great software.

    Well i installed just the newest Beta of Affinity Photo .1.7  0231,   and looked at the Changes..   Affinity even didnt mention it there i think.. 
     
    But very very helpful and important for me was a very tiny shortcut missing...     additiv in the Layermanager select pixelselections..    So Serif listens to us.. 
    Shortcut is in German:
    STRG+Shift+ Leftmousebutton click..      /    or  :     cmd+shift+ LMB  klick..  
    this tiny shortcut will reduce selectiontimes on big documents with many masks where you all the time have to select many layers, (in Visualisation compositings of Architectural visualisations for example) ,  enormously.. 
    So many many thanks..

    But !  i cant find a way to deselect from a Selection..  this is still missing,  maybe this could be implemented too ?
