  1. Hi Mark Thanks for your answer, appreciated. BTW is it normal that both "Save" and "Export" takes ages now? I mean old build was a bit faster doing that and the concept of "waiting too long" wasn't invited in the party. Does this affect only me or changes have been recently made? I use no HW Accel. as my GPU just can't so it's not linked to my GPU unless the app is trying to force that functionality in BG. Well whatever that is, I believe it will fixed or explained so to make things clear. Blessings
  2. I believe a lot of work is to be done on that HW accel. thing. Possible I use WARP ? What difference will it bring ? Known i own a Quadro K2000 by Nvidia
  3. Thank you for this build @Mark Ingram 1- Download [for both AfDesign and AfPhoto] went straight and fast, no problems, no hang and crash. 2- Loading was good, standard speed 3- Also the drag ndrop issue i had with previous build is gone and i'm happy. I have a potential project on hand that will determine more and if i find something i'll text here. Regards.
  4. @Sean P and the vector team many have asked for a new way to manage shadow on objects etc (myself included) so I propose that the vector Team investigate on Logoist by Synium software; it has an acceptable way of doing things when it comes to shadow (drop down, long shadow etc.) and maybe from there you can build something pretty and original. I'm enjoying current Beta phase a lot but I believe many have needs so even small implementation can and would help to be patient and tempted not to hop between apps. Help us Help you guys. Thanks and Blessings.
  5. @Mark Ingram Thanks for this build, the issue i had with assets on previous build is gone and i was able to compose 2 designs and things went okay except I had the impression of few lags and some latency. Nothing to worry too much about but it appeared to me that exporting is 2 or 3 times much slower than saving the same file which never happened to me before. I hope there is an explanation for that or simply next build will fix it. Also, 3D and bevel + Emboss works much better and seem to not be to strong on applying to objects (ie: texts) ... Please provide us with a fully featured 3D studio in Designer so we can design much much better including compositions of many nature. Thanks for your great job on this build.
  6. Hello Team Download was fine, good speed and no interruption at all. install was fine too. Now the only way to test if it is better than previous to start a project and see if there issues or not. Thanks for your hard work.
  7. Everything works correct on this release except s mall regression. Drag an asset, keep the mouse button pressed trying to drop it as far as possible on the canvas/artboard then release. It drops something so small no one can distinguish it, but more than that, it is impossible to resize via the transform section tab, impossible to select it and do a manual resize because the thing is not even existent on the layer stack. Only turn around i found is to release the mouse button as soon as it reaches the border of the canvas/artboard; only then, things are okay and I can work easy. Need to fix it so people making a lot of use of Assets to not go crazy thinking they made mistake or broke the app. Thanks for your great job.
  8. This is serious request and the Dev team should consider it carefully.
  9. Thank you so much. My next hunting party will be to find a card that's full Dx12 but for now ... i've tested and it runs faster and even set it to benefit of the basic acceleration the card can offer via Win10 functionalities and I'm happy ... much better response time. Now waiting for the next build is there is one coming around the corner. Once again, Thank you so much!
  10. just got an Nvidia Quadro K2000 with 2GB VRam but can't enable "OpenCL compute acceleration" I'm currently on WIndows 10 Pro N rel. 20h2 Any fix on this? Will next allow that or ... I should consider reinstalling ?
  11. @Mark Ingram first of all sorry for asking here but, I've not seen or experienced a real change on the isometric functions and even the small 3D functions provided into AfDesigner. I mean we should be able to rotate object in a proper way with real time preview. I may be mistaken on this but I believe that AfDesigner is actually mature for having descent 3D functionalities. Relying on external apps to make basics works or even a simple long shadow or just projected shadow using (per example) the lightning tool, doing that kind of job using an external tools can turn to be(come) a nightmare and requires a massive learning time and resources just for simple tricks we should be capable of doing from our main tool. Please feel free to move this if posted on a wrong topic, i just believed such function should already pops in beta releases/builds before v2 hit our doors and become the standard. Be Blessed.
  12. Hello @Mark Ingram and team Personally I'll wait for the next build to come so to be sure things have been sorted but i'd like to say thanks, just to check stuff i've launched a DL of AfPhoto and your decision to move to that CDN for the DL is super cool. won't comment a lot just look at the screenshot here. Good move guys, it is well appreciated here. Thanks one more time
  13. I'm a bit sceptic here! Should I DL and Load this build or just wait until next build? How long till next build? i'm enjoy the way the team is handling things right now, so dynamic Thanks
  14. 1- Download was cool and fast, no lag, no stop. 2- install went no issue and no alert 3- app launch is fast (have not tried a project with it) 4- font loading is faster compared to previous build. 5- Removal of guide is faster never had this up to now. Please keep this or improve more if possible but I'm fine with it current status. 6- Template loading is faster (i have pixels and vector stuffs in there) it load it just at the speed of a WACS. 7- loaded recent project with even more than what my templates do have and it was much faster loading than AfPhoto did. 8- File>Export (to Dir) is now much better but not as faster as what AfPhoto actually demonstrated to me today but still, it is a bit faster than the action on the previous build, please make it much faster there is no need to wait seconds juts to display the file manager and save my project. This should ne as natural as possible. This build is good for me except the few I mentioned above. Thanks to @Mark Ingram and the entire AfDesigner team.
  15. 1- Download was cool and fast, no lag, no stop. 2- install went no issue and no alert 3- app launch is fast (have not tried a project with it) 4- font loading is quite faster. 5- Removal of guide is a bit faster than previous build but still has lags, well nothing major on this I can live with it. 6- project template loading is slow while it loaded in less than 3sec on AfPublisher (exact exact template, no change to it); should be fixed in next build. 7- File>Export (to Dir) now works faster, all previous build was lagging a lot when trying to open the windows file manager dialog box but now it's much better. This build seem to be good at some for me but still some few stuffs need to be resolved or improved for the good. Thanks to @Mark Ingram and the entire AfPublisher team.
  16. 1- Download was cool and fast, no lag, no stop. 2- install went no issue and no alert 3- app launch is fast (have not tried a project with it) 4- font loading is quite faster. 5- Removal of guide is faster and I just love it. This beta seem to be all good for me at current. Thanks to @AdamW and the entire AfPublisher team.
  17. Another inspiration for my OpenSource friends. Made with .9xx Beta of AfPhoto and AfDesigner Leave your comments to help me improve more. Thanks!
  18. Tried it but 1- fontbase run slow on my PC 2- is external and I'm not sure it can mimic or achieve what i asked ... but i'll consider to give it another try one of these days Thanks
  19. Thanks @Mark Ingram for the release, congrat to your respective teams. From DL to install, all went fast and cool, such a peace and tears. App loading and document loading have improved a lot ( just hope it won't drop or regress in next builds). Well, one detail that still bother me a bit, after loading a document (template here) with guides I experience lag when I try to remove a single guide by sliding it out of the canvas. So the grab slide to remove make the app to run slow, my templates are 1920*1080 only in size. is it possible to investigate that and make it work similar to what I see in stable version (no lag there) as this may appear in next stable and get people mad. But for now, i'd say Good job guys. Thanks
  20. Thank @Mark Ingram for this release. installed it on my side and it works good, will maybe give it a quick project to see how it handles stuffs a bit later during the day. One thing i've noted that could bring a huge change for further release is font loading. AfDesigner (but also AfPublisher and AfPhoto) are slow at font loading on startup but also when having to select from the app, if possible please make some improvements to that for the good of all users, it is crucial to have it proceed much faster. I know it seem to run much faster with less than 500 fonts but in my case I do a lot of test and have to load new fonts like almost everyday and growing my base (currently around 2800 fonts) ... or unless you can do things the way Blender do them, allow us to select fonts from an external folder without a need to install them on our system then we will be able to lessen the load and gain more speed and reactivity of the app. But i'm not a Dev so, I leave this to your skills and appreciation. Thanks for the release!
  21. Thanks to @Sean P @Chris B and @Mark Ingram for their strong support. Without you shipping builds that works, this would not be possible, entirely made with the recent .900 RC release of AfPhoto and AfDesigner. it works !
  22. Fetching right now ... will test in coming hours. good job guys.
  23. I asked this months ago ... wait kind of back in 2018 or so Please unveil your solution when it is ready for us to enjoy it and become even more productif
