  1. I used to a while ago play around with making some simple animation projects and wanted to get back into the swing of it. So since I have been building / painting Zoids this past couple of months I wanted to make an animation around it. Making A Zoid-HD 1080p.mov Programs Used: Affinity Photo (iPad Pro) Affinity Designer (iPad Pro) After Effect CC (M1 Mac Mini) Final Cut Pro (M1 Mac Mini) Still Images:
  2. Update: I'm still getting this issue... its kinda annoying having to move the project over to my Mac just to connect lines together...
  3. Hello, I’ve been having a issue with Affinity Designer on the iPad, when I have more then 2 line created with the “Pencil” tool and try to “Join” the lines the app will crash. e.g. If I highlight all 3 lines, then go to the “node tool” and click “join” the app will crash. If I select two lines then “join” it will not crash. However if I then select the line (that was use joined together) and select the 3rd line and “join” the app will still crash. Here is a video: IMG_0140.MOV Project file: App Crash.afdesign I’ve also tried copying these lines into a new project and it will still crash, along with iPad re-start. I’ve been having this issue a couple of times now when connecting lines. Thank you for your time. Andrew,
  4. Even July is already over (by 10 days at the time of this posting!!!) Check out Julys illustration I continue my year-long need to drawing monsters and merge it with my love of retro games and arcades!! The illustration was made with Affinity Designer + Affinity Photo on the iPad Pro. Check out more illustration: https://bit.ly/36d5NtE Affinity Designer: I started the project in Affinity Designer (on the iPad) where I sketched out the core idea and layout before moving into a vector where I created the monsters, arcade logo, and background neon objects along with the ghost. After this, I moved over to the iMac + Maya where I worked on creating the 3D arcade assets + textures. After this, I moved back into Designer where I placed the 3D model arcades, brick wall texture and work on all the other small vector items. Affinity Photo: Now it's time to move into Photo, where I drag and drop the file from Designer over to Photo (on the iPad Pro) where I start working on raster effects, such as applying some brush texture effects to the vector monster to give some more levels of effects and style. All brushed used in this project is either the default Affinity ones or one from frankentoon. From where I was on adding some 2D shadows with a pixel brush and added in some layer adjustments and layer filters to the image to finish it off. Anyway, I hope you like the image and I hope you all have a great day. Before & After: Close up!!: What do you think? and I hope you are all doing amazing!!!!
  5. Hello everyone, I’ve been having a issue with Affinity Designer on the 12.9” iPad Pro (2018) with a project that crashes seconds after open. This project is a large document for print, it haves 2 artbords both at 1016x2032mm with a file size of 81.6mb. I was wondering if the crash may be due to Affinity or the fact the project may be hitting the limited of the iPad power and causing it to crash? Here is a video of the crash. 720p.MOV I’ve also attached the project file: Arcade_101_Side_Art_02.afdesign Thank you for your time. Andrew.
  6. Hello everyone, Back with another illustration. Similar to “Light houses” this one is also a mixture of vector illustration with photography. The main vector objects (the monsters/creatures) where made in Affinity Designer then moved into Affinity Photo where I started with the background, removing all the people, followed by removing any text on the signs and labels around the train and replace it with my own text (a bit over kill since there kinda small to read and most people will never see it but was still fun to do) followed by placing the vector objects in, colour correcting the scene and adding shadows and other textuers such as dust and lens scratches. Overall the project was fun to mess around with and I’m happy with how it came out. Made with Affintiy Photo + Affinity Designer and made on the iPad Pro. Main image: Close Up: How it was made: Thank you for your time, Andrew.
  7. Love the design amazing job and I really like the use of gradients and noise effect. Great job.
  8. Great job, love the use of textuers that link well with the theme of the magazine and each page layout feels different in there own way.
  9. This post is more of a question/issues and the section you posted it in is design for people to share there works. You might want to post your question in one of these groups: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/forum/50-affinity-support-questions/ For example if your question/issue is in relationships to the desktop apps post them here: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/forum/5-affinity-on-desktop-questions-mac-and-windows/ Or if its for the iPadOS version post them here: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/forum/43-affinity-on-ipad-questions/ <now moved>
  10. Amazing job I love the textual effects to the letters. Love the middle version tho some of the letters go get a little lost tho its adds to the abstract theme of the design.
  11. Thanks, the blur is not mist but more of an artistic choice to use blur in that way (i know if it was real death of field the whole object would be blurred)
  12. I can conform, if you export the project as either a .EPS or .PDF that text will work in Photoshop (without being rastered)
  13. Hey everyone. I hope you all are well!! Been working on some illustrations and wanted to share one with you all. I've been message around with arts styles and started to play around with mixing raster and vector together and came up with this. Where I take vector shapes and apply raster effects such as brush effects and textures to it. Made with Affinity Designer + Affinity Photo on the iPad Pro. (With brushes from https://frankentoonstudio.com) What do you all think? Thank you for your time. Andrew Salfinger - Made by Campfire
  14. That sucks, would have came in handy when dealing with style guides and thanks for the link, will make it easier that way.
  15. Hello. I was wondering if there was away to generate colour information from a colour for use within a style guide. For example let's say you have a colour and you wanted to copy the info such as hex code, RGB numbers and CMYK numbers. The way I've been doing, select the colour copy the R colour number paste the number into the text box, select the colour again, copy the G colour number and paste the number into the text box and it dose take awhile to copy all information over. The faster way I've found is to take a screen shot of the colour information and write the text from there since you don't have to go back and forth. Is there a faster way to create colour information for use within a style guide? Thank you for your time.
  16. Hello, When creating artboard and moving them about the project, it dose not move then by integer pixel value. e.g. instead of beyond x14 px it can be 14.1px this can be annoying them trying to export an dartboard when it should be 1080x1080 due to the board being at x14.1px the dartboard once exported size will be 1081x1080px. Example below: This is the snap settings I have: Even with force pixel and move by whole pixel. The artbaord them selfs still don't move by integer pixel values? Is there away to stop them moving .1 of a pixel to prevent dartboard export sizes being incorrect? Thank you for your time, Andrew.
  17. Okay, so in-order to run this document smoothly it would be recommended to have more than 23GB of memory?
  18. Hello, I've noticed when working on large projects with Affinity Designer / Photo they its sing a lot of memory/ram for example in one project, "Activity Monitor" on the Mac is saying Affinity Designer is using 20.43GB of memory when I only have 16GB? I've attached a image below: For this project: the file size is 663.9 MB with a artboard size of 23822.2 px X 6585.3 px and 300 DPI As for the Mac its: iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2014), with a 3.5 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5, 16 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 and AMD Radeon R9 M290X 2 GB Could it be Designer is leaking memory or is it saying to be able to run this project smoothly I need around 20GB of ram? Here are some more images from "Activity Monitor" Thank you for your time, Andrew.
  19. Okay, thanks I will check it out. Yeah APhoto dose not make a bunch of sense but it would be great to have these things universal so you don't have to jump around apps to use a information tool. EDIT: Just moved the project over to APublisher and tried out the "Resource Manager" it dose what I need, thanks @Joachim_L
  20. Okay, so this is normal to happen? Kinda sucks having to move the project to my computer to fix this issue but if it’s a hardware limit not much can be really done, since optimisation of the app it self can only go so far.
  21. Hello everyone! I was wondering if there was a panel / and or way to see all raster / image (none vector) assets in a project, and get information such as: Name Format Colour space Status DPI Size Dimensions If this is not within AD/AP it would be an amazing thing to have (helps a lot with print design (and when working with vector and raster projects) Thank you for your time, Andrew.
  22. Hmm.. okay, should a project like this normally lag so much tho, since its not really that big? I’ve opened it up on the desktop version as well (macOS) and did not get anywhere near the same amount of lag compared to iPadOS version (iPad version was near impossible to use)
