  1. Well the conversation about rainbows goes well but I do not see any help to get the effect that I need. Can you give me some tips about how can I get this effect ? Instead of be over the background image, I will need to be a solid layer but the layer is cut (mask) in the area where we have the rainbow arc (ellipse) like if we see the the rainbow thru a arc mask. I don´t want that the rainbow overlays the other layer I need the rainbow goes behind the foreground and pass thru an arc cut. It´s enough to give me an Ideia of the technic that I should to get this effect. Anyone ? Thanks you all
  2. Complete arc is in my opinion an arc that will touch the earth on both sides the other arcs are still arcs but don´t touch the earth.
  3. Hi walt.farell What you are telling is that we will not get an version 1 to vers 2 upgrade price ??!!!!
  4. Now your focus is in the `natural rainbows" and that´s fine I now we are impressed with this natural event. My opinion is that all rainbows are different, is like if the have their own ID signature depending of the weather conditions. Can you give me some tips about how can I get this effect ?

  5. When I say natural I mean that looks a real rainbow. Sorry I disagree rainbow arc is almost of the time a not complete arc and as AffinityJules show there are also that kind of rainbows, I also saw like those and many many other forms. I need to archive this effect.

  6. Hi RC-R, You seam to be a fan of MAS, as I am but for simple apps. Thanks for the long description of MAS benefits but your post does not bring anything new for me about Mac app store, I am a mac user since Apple Macintosh SE30. To answer your question I just want to remember: I thought you were telling that the MAS users could then buy the version 2 paid upgrades from Affinity store. Thanks
  7. Hi gbenby, Woowww that´s very cool,..... How did you make the color decay in the bottom part of the ellipse ? Thanks
  8. Thanks gdenby I will take a look.
  9. If you notice in the Affinity Designer product page if you hit the the buy button it redirects to Serif Store, we only see App Store ate the end of the page, this will drive buyers to Serif Store. So I hope the the first Serif clients from MAS will not be forgotten. By the way how can I test the beta versions if I do not have a "Product Key" ? I think if we get the product from MAS we do not have a product key. update: I could not run the beta because I am using symbolic links, so after copying the stable version to /Applications I could start the beta. The initial Affinity Designer Beta also tells that we need to install the beta from the MAS. Where is it, I can not find the beta versions on MAS. You say that I would be able to buy the paid upgrade from Serif Store but if Serif don´t know if the buyer is a user from MAS how will they sell me a upgrade ?!?!?! I would like to know Serif reaction about this subject. Thanks
  10. Hi GarryP Unfortunately I can not open the file, I am getting "The file version is not supported by this version of Affinity." Witch Affinity Designer version are you using ? Update: I download the beta version and now I can open the file. Thanks GarryP that´s almost what I need, now instead of be over the background image, I will need to be a solid layer but the layer is cut (mask) in the area where we have the rainbow arc (ellipse) like it was a window in a format of a arc to see the rainbow behind the solid layer. It´s a little difficult to explain. Can you please send me a Version 6 file ? Thanks
  11. Thanks for your suggestions but it does not seam natural and that will only work in in perfect arc. Sorry I did not explain but I need to reproduce a natural rainbow arc, maybe I should try to make the rainbow inside a curve. The color shift in nature seams much more progressive, is there any way to make it smooth ? Please take a look in the file to see the kind of arcs that I am trying to do. Thanks a lot.

  12. Hi, I am looking for your ideas about how to create a natural transparent rainbow. I need to place the rainbow inside an arc (for example half o a donnut), can I cut the donnut at the midle and use it as a mask to show the rainbow. What will be the best way to get it done ? Thanks.
  13. I got the application from MAS and I don´t care about with the "very convenient way to buy & update them" I do care if the application in MAS is always updated for the last version and if Serif keep the MAS distribution. I will be happy if I can upgrade to Serif store because I will feel more secure to get updates directly from the developer. Buying a full product again just to move to Serif Store !!!!... sorry I don´t think that´s a happy ideia for licensed user.
  14. So if the user buy on MAS, Serif don´t know if a user is a licensed user or not. Very accurate, so if an application needs support Serif will support all users and do not know if they really buy the application. And buying from MAS the user will lose the applications updates if Serif decide to leave MAS. If Serif can´t confirm who have licensed their apps if they como from MAS it will be really difficult to deal with MAS users if they decide to leave MAS. Many developers already decide to leave MAS distribution, so if Serif one day decide to do the same, they need to create some options to MAS existing customers. I would like to ear something from Serif about this subject because Serif initially just distribute MacOS version from MAS now I see they are available in Serif Store. MAS clientes help Serif to get MacOS version buyers, lets see what will happen in the future.
  15. Probably you are thinking about doing automatically. Manually I think when someone buy something from MAS receive a receipt with a description of the product so they have a proof. The problem is I both two Serif applications and if something goes wrong with MAS in my computer or Apple ID can not restore or update so I do prefer to buy the application in developer store if I have that option. Now Serif does sell the Mac versions but the only way to get the updates from them is to buy them again in their shop.
