  1. Thanks for the link. Does Unity tool able to remove shadows from the sun? Looks like it's basically ambient AO like lighting is being removed in their video. ps.There was an interesting soft https://www.fxguide.com/featured/tandent-lightbrush-engineering-an-image/ . It works right as they advertised even without any geometry info. I still wonder what's the magic behind this.
  2. How Unity tool do it? based on what principles? Perhaps it could be possible to recreate with regular image editing tools. Usually it's pretty simple math
  3. Please make "Inner glow" effect working only for layer transparency as an option . A checkbox
  4. The way we could link scale/move transforms of certain objects/layers in different mask stacks or within different groups the way those objects wouldn't move with their parents and stay in sync to each other scale and position all the time. The absence of the feature is a huge limiting factor comparing to what we can do in Photoshop with its clipping groups
  5. Wonder if those betas are still available? I miss the feature very much. I recall Creation House Expression which is not working on Mac anymore and I can't find Windows version too. It was a super cool feature there where you could do not only simple edge feather but even feather + noise giving a lot of interesting effects. Microsoft then killed it when turned the soft into their "Design" version.
  6. Thanks a lot Dave, I missed Cmd feature somehow. As of linked layers I actually hoped for something like layer transform links in Photoshop for the start. So I could scale/move a selected group container together with a certain mask layer in a certain mask stack inside other independent group to subtract something in sync there. It's possible to do in Photoshop for example with its clipping groups and link chains. Or maybe even an ability for a mask or a layer to be a live sum (or any other math formula with a special text based interface) of certain arbitrary composition of any chosen layers residing within different group containers or attached to different parents and still being scaled/moved in sync.
  7. Or almost live like in Photoline. Don't think it's too complex thing to do since we always could do same manually . Still would be much easier to have an automatic solution
  8. Would love such a feature working as effect, in both Design and Photo, probably as one more checkbox in Blur effect blurring only alpha of an object. Would be much more helpful than Photoshop styled mask feather which annoys me with doing redundant mask first. You could see an example in Photoline where you can choose on what channel the blur effect works exactly . Not that I couldn't do same manually with blurring mask things, same as in Photoshop but it takes me annoying amount of extra manipulations. I'd like it to be just a part of same live effect.
  9. There is a free "Scan" app for Windows https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/p/windows-scan/9wzdncrfj3pv
  10. It's request of course. Still hope we will see them soon.
  11. I am patiently waiting when a few promised before features would appear. But times have come and pass and no more even mentioning about them anywhere 1. linked layers or any other way we could link a layer appearance and transforms to a sum of certain other layers independently. 2. Scaling around a center of transforms like in Photoshop/ Photoline etc By the way Photoline did a cool "match color" adjusting layer , Would be cool to have same as "live" effect .

  13. 1,. feathering edges of bitmap objects as effect 2. multi repeating parts in image brush dialog. Those were two cool features of Draw Plus. Why they didn't make their way into Designer?
  14. ok, Thanks a lot Alfred
  15. Thanks Alfred. Does it work with and able to export 16 bit images? Or perhaps I could compose the document in Draw plus using feather with bitmap objects and then open it in Affinity Design, then replace with original 16 bit source keeping all the transforms intact to be then saved as 16 bit image? Does Design read Draw plus files with full editability?
