  1. Pattern Layer can be larger than 1024px. 1 Create a rectangle of the desired size in pixels 2 rasterize it 3 Layer > New Pattern Layer From Selection Pattern_Layer.mp4
  2. Yes, masks can consist of several parts, and can also be non-destructive:
  3. Wow, I didn't know it was possible to fill any pixel layer with color using the "Gradient Tool" (G) and just choosing a color!
  4. An additional faster and more convenient way. 1. Add Non-destructive Blur. 2. Add a Mask (z-depth layer) for the blur effect. 3. Adjust the "Blend Ranges (cog icon)" curves for the mask. Levels adjustment of the z-depth layer is not required. The distance between two points in the "Blend Ranges" can be represented as a field of focus. 3.mp4 -
  5. Hi, The z-depth layer must be rasterized into a mask: 1.mp4 In this case, the mask will determine transparency rather than the strength of the blur effect. Therefore, it will be somewhat similar to the Orton effect. In some cases, the "Depth of Field" filter can be useful: 2.mp4 -
  6. Hi, Try a non-destructive boolean. Hold down the Alt key before the boolean operation.
  7. I think if you add a wireframe view, it will be clearer to many people.
  8. These are actions for Affinity Photo: 1. Select a layer with your logo, Filters > Erase White Paper 2. Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Recolour
  9. Yes it works in Windows AP, AD (1.10.4) 1. Affinity Designer > Swatches > Add Application Palette. 2. Add the desired gradients, Export Palette. 3. Affinity Photo > Swatches > Import As Application Palette. Here is the palette file created in version AD 1.10.4 in Windows: test palette.afpalette This is how imported palettes look in AP in Windows:
  10. Easter Egg! This file also contains an example of how to turn off noise for a gradient πŸ‘
  11. Damn it! What a trick! Wisely πŸ‘ This would be a good addition to these brushes:
  12. Hi, There is no exact alternative, but the Affinity Photo has a non-destructive "Field Blur". It is a "live filter", which means that it will act in a non-destructive way. After creating the "Field Blur" you can move and edit all the objects underneath it. The live filter appears in the Layers panel as a layer, and acts on all layers/objects below it. You can also isolate the effect with a group, or by applying it only to the selected object. All live filters created in Affinity Photo can be edited in Affinity Designer. In this example, I first selected an object and then applied a live filter. So, the filter will act only on this object: Field_Blur.mp4 But you can also pull that filter out of that object, and apply it to another object or group: Field_Blur_2.mp4 Field_Blur.afphoto
  13. Thanks for the reply! I just wanted to reduce the resolution of some of the content to export to PDF ("Nearest Neighbour" method, no blurring). Yes, I'm using that technique now. I use a different method, I create a duplicate for a backup, reduce by half the desired content, raster, increase by half, raster. That's my workaround. The second workaround is to use the "Pixelate" filter instead of rasterizing, but it gives a slightly rougher result.
  14. This is awesome! Your interactive map reminded me of an old game:
  15. I'm sure there should be an option to display all the terminals on the map.
  16. I'm going to assume that this is all a 3D model, well stylized as a 2D illustration, with an orthographic camera. That fooled me πŸ‘ So the animals are flat animated polygons or sprites.
  17. Hi, Is it possible to rasterize a selected layer/group in a non-destructive way, with a "Live Filter" for example with a live filter "Procedural Texture"? I would like to rasterize a certain object/layer at a resolution less than the document resolution. For example 1/2, 1/4, etc.
  18. Hi, What is technically a car and a boat? Is it a set of 2D images or a 3D model?
  19. By the way, that reminds me of the new linking feature in AP. But this tool is not really intuitive. Links.mp4
  20. What Bruce suggested worked. The shape turns out as a plateau, and the 3D effect does not affect the color of the gradient. Wasn't that your goal?
  21. This is a short tutorial for Affinity Photo that shows you the steps for creating a frosted glass effect. The finished effect created in Affinity Photo can be used and edited in Affinity Designer. 1. Deselect all layers. 2. Click the "Live Filters" icon in the Layers panel, and choose Gaussian Blur from the list. Move the slider so that the effect is visible. 3. Create a shape, it must be filled with color, it can be vector or raster. This shape will be the silhouette of the frosted glass. 4. In the Layers panel, drag the "shape" layer onto the "Gaussian Blur" layer icon so that a small vertical bar appears on the layer icon. Thus, the shape will limit the effect, i.e. the shape will be a mask for the blur effect. Tip: For the effect to work properly on the artboard in Affinity Designer, the artboard must have a background as a vector or raster non-transparent layer, or just apply color to the artboard. Also, the "Preserve Alpha" option must be enabled in the blur effect settings. Example files: Blur.afdesign Blur_Artboard.afdesign Video tutorial: Blur.mp4 -
  22. Hi and Welcome to the Affinity Forums! The brush opacity is set to 0.
  23. Here is a small tutorial on how to make a document with fractional DPI in Designer and Photo: DPI_Designer.mp4 DPI_Photo.mp4
