  1. Thanks. When I get back, I'll take a whole series of different images. There isn't any blank areas (or blue sky) to worry about. Might even dig out my old S50 - which has a panorama function. Really appreicated.
  2. Hey Bruce, Thanks for the comment. It's an image inside a small room - so I'm trying to get the full height of the wall (which I can't with the camera turned horz.). I'll give it a go with a smaller number of images. Update: Seems that less images makes a difference. I can do four, but five makes it freak! It could be that the images are confusing it, as I don't have a panorama function on my camera. Thanks for the help. Regards
  3. Greetings, Using Affinity Photo... I tried a vertical panorama (the camera is turned sideways so the long length of the image is vertical) using a group of 11 images. It took a long time to process them, but once it was done, the resulting panorama was squashed - as though the software only recognizes the images as 16x9 normal (horizontal). Can I use vertical images for panoramas? PS I've done a search of the site and read many posts, but I could 't find an answer to this Thanks
  4. Hey Dan, wasn't suggesting a full PDF version of the book. Obviously I wasn't clear enough :(. It would be nice if a PDF version of only the changes made to each release was available. That is, you don't rewrite the workbook every time (well I hope not)...only change the relevant parts for the newest release of the software. So in effect, for those of us that had purchased the workbooks, we would only get a select number of PDF pages that show the updated practices with the software. We could than print those out and insert it between the correct pages in the actual book. Cheers.
  5. Would be nice if those of us that purchased the workbooks prior to 1.7 had the ability to get a PDF update to the changes made in the workbook. Having purchased both books, which equates to a reasonable investment, makes me realize how out-of-date real books soon can be. However, there is still a lot of valuable info in the books, even if they are not specifically current.
  6. This is what it's all about... https://affinityspotlight.com/article/introducing-design-cuts/?utm_source=SpotlightEmail&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Newsletter
  7. I think this has been asked before. AFAIK - Serif doesn't currently have any plans for a digital version.
  8. Interesting comment. I started learning Blender because someone on my scale modelling forum is using it for scale modelling projects and 3D printing - and its free. So, are you saying (IYO) MoI3D is better to learn for 3D printing (something I'm trying to get into but I want to learn to model first), or stick with Blender. I find both MoI and Rhino easier to use than Blender - struggling with the everything is a flat line / panel thingee. That is, start making a round item with a cube. Seems wierd to me (counter-intuitive) - but I have more time in both Moi and Rhino (but currently own neither). I'm a long time user of TurboCAD (2D only). While I've done some 3D modelling in it (and 3D learning), I wasn't sold on its coolness for that. I plan in the long term to take some paid courses for that as well. Miss the CAD type tools in Blender (especially some of the awesome snaps). I still draw a lot of make stuff in CAD - export to svg and import into Designer. I find that easier than using Designer's tools. Could be though that my 15+years in TurboCAD helps with me being comfortable with the tool set. I have done several precision tutorials in Blender, so I know it can be done (with effort). Apologies to the other posters here as I realise this is somewhat off topic.
  9. @chippwalters - Thanks for the video. Something else to add to my to-do list - make material tiles! Glad Kit Ops is going well for you. I've had a play with the free version. Scared me on how awesome it was . I'll be along soon to get a copy. Two weeks ago I finished Zacharias Reinhardt's (CG Boost Academy) Blender 2.8 Launchpad online beginner course (First online course ever). It was excellent. I learned a lot of the basics. Trying to follow up that learning with more difficult stuff on the actual 3d modelling side - so I'm looking for my next course (most are still for 2.79). Want to get into some Moi sometime too. I've been using the Affinity Apss for a couple of years. I think they're great - but always so much to learn. Looking forward to more tutorials.
  10. @chippwalters Hey Chipp - nice to see you over here (assuming you are the CW I've seen on other forums) Been meaning to catch up with you over KO. How is that going?? - Well I hope. Hope you find the Affinity products (remember they are only Version 1 at this point) as cool as we do. While they do take some effort - I think they are worth it. Catch ya on the flipside!
  11. Have you downloaded the assets as directed in the book?
  12. That is quite a neat effect the top image - especially the hands coming out of the images. I'll have to have a play with this technique at some point.
  13. Good to know. I'll have a play with this to figure it out. To much to learn ...and so little time!
  14. So a afbrush file is Affinity's version of the brush?? I guess these are created when you install new brushes (for each brush??) This could be a good alternative - but ultimately, it would be nice if Affinity could reset ALL brushes to default that match what they were when installed. I have been caught numerous times and the originals setting have been lost. I'm still really a noob with all this stuff.
  15. Yeah...I think it sets the brushes back to factory - all installed brushes other than the default Affinity are lost. This is a major limitation. I would like to see the option to reset brushes back to factory - including all installed brushes. I thought this might have been resolved in 1.7, but obviously it's not seen as an issue. Massive task to write down all the brush settings when they're first installed.
  16. I'd love to help as well if I could. I also have the Huion 610 Pro v2 model but I don't really know how to drive it. (hell I don't even know where the steering wheel is yet!) I can also attest to the fact that Huion has a good support service. I'm currently having issues with my system that is caused by the Huion driver - we are still trying to get to the bottom if it.
  17. For Windows also...I'll give a nod toward "Advanced Renamer" - comes in a portable version (so doesn't need to be installed) Using the replace function is quite easy (online tutorials / examples) and there is an undo feature if you screw it up. One thing I like about it - you can save the renaming function to use again.
  18. Another possibility is too customise the toolbar (there are not many icons) using "View" "Customise Toolbar" I'm also a big keyboard cmd fan
  19. I'm having exactly the same issue. APub will not let me change to another font (changes for two seconds then reverts). Also, it will not change even when I have the correct font it says I am missing (this is because the PDF perhaps gives the font a different name than how it is designated on my system??) Also...APub doesn't always register when the font library is update - I have to restart the program. Further - sometimes APub lists the same missing font twice - like it has been given two different names within the PDF or something. The above is with a PDF document that is opened (not placed) in APub.
  20. Thanks Edit: Too many sites saying this is malware infected. Not going to take the risk.
