  1. Wow! Perfect! I'd have never thought to use Move Tool and Deselect Layers. And setting up the colors beforehand was inspired. Many Thanks. What this macro does is create two complimentary color fill layers: Magenta/Green or Blue/Yellow or Red/Cyan with opacity set to something less than 50% One of the color pairs is set to color burn which colors the shadows and the other color is set to color dodge to color the highlights. The blend range of each color layer is then tweaked and fiddled with until I get the color grade I'm after. If you uncheck linear in the blend range and are comfortable with curves the possibilities for color manipulation are staggering. Thanks again.
  2. Yep, adding a pixel layer then filling it then changing the color does record in a macro. But I kinda wanted an actual fill layer, non-rasterized. But I guess I'll take what I can get. The rasterized layer looks like it will get me where I want to go in a recorded macro. Thanks for the help.
  3. Trying it now... Seemed to work first time through for 1 layer. But I'm playing with some color grading where I use two opposing layers that are different colors. When I record adding the second layer it dies on the change color with the same error about not being able to "set fill".
  4. I'm recording a macro in AP windows to create a new fill layer and change the fill color. Macro recorder dies when I change the fill color. Error is "can't record set fill". Anybody know a way around this?
  5. Frankly, there's no comparison. I have them both and Affinity is light-years ahead of luminar in every aspect you could name.
  6. Just an FYI, I was working though the Affinity Photo Workbook and was having trouble getting texture applied to text in the "Search The Woods" section of chapter 4. This topic explains the technique and its subtleties perfectly. Thanks.
