  1. Hi everyone been enjoying the new version 1.9 I also enjoy using Filter forge and it works quite well with affinity. However applying a filter forge texture is a destructive edit. In Photo 1.9 I have set up a preset for creating patterns it's basically a 600px square document with a transparent background. What I do is add a fill layer and rasterize it. Then I select all (ctrl +A on Pc and I think cmd +A on mac) once I have my selection I go to the filers menu and select Filter forge from the plugins. there are a vast amount of texture filters in the filter forge library to choose from once I have my texture set the way I want it I make sure that seamless tiling is checked on and click apply. Once the filter renders in photo I go to layers> new pattern layer from selection and boom affinity generates a pattern layer ready to use. I like to add my patterns to my assets panel for easy access and the great thing about this is you can clip a texture pattern into text or vector shapes and they remain completely editable.
  2. Dear Affinity Photo users! I'm glad to announce that Filter Forge 7.0 is released. It supports Affinity Photo 1.5, and will support AP 1.6 as soon as Serif officially releases the update. All the new features with descriptions are here https://www.filterforge.com/features/ but I'll list them here as well. For all the users: 1. We've made Filter Forge faster by improving sample caching. 2. Copy and paste images between Filter Forge and any graphic editor. So it means you can use Filter Forge with AP 1.6 even before the update is released. 3. Generate and preview all active channels during rendering and export all of them to files at once. For filter authors: 1. Instant component search will help you to find and add any component faster and easier. 2. We refreshed 47 existing components, made their list and slider inputs mappable. Now there's even less boundaries for your creativity. Try all these new features https://www.filterforge.com/download/ and let us know what you think.
  3. In a recent post, the OP was asking about wavelets. I was aware that FilterForge did offer wavelet filter and that FF 6 was compatible with Affinity Photo. Some time ago I bought FF6 on a special offer, but I had not really explored it. So I downloaded the wavelet filter for FF. I needed to upgrade to the latest version of FF6 first (not FF7), and it loaded into Affinity. I had loaded and developed a raw image of a prickly shrub first as a suitable subject. After a while it showed a set of images of the various decompositions squashed side-by-side. The rather limited filter documentation tells me to load the six output images into a stack above the residual image. I can work out which these are in the composite image above, but I have no idea what happened to the individual, properly-scaled output images. Does anyone have any experience of this? The FF filter is said to emulate the wavelet filter in GIMP. I saved the composite image from within the FF filter, but I found that it had frozen Affinity. I had to use the Task Manager to close it. I also noticed that Affinity was using over 5Gb of memory as opposed to a more usual 400Mb. I was later able to run FilterForge as a standalone with no problems. I have posed a comment on the Filter Forge Forum, but the link to email the author does not function. John
  4. Hi, Filter Forge might not run right from the shelves in Affinity. Attached an explanation of how to make it work. Roberto
