  1. Changing a blend mode from normal to overlay does not work when painting on a mask. Does anyone know how to do this?
  2. How do I convert a mask I made into a vectorized curve? Found nothing in the tutorials of Affinity Designer. I'll really appreciate any help. Cheers, Roland
  3. Is it possible to support an exported file from Inkscape that miss these...? - Corner Radius (Can be solved by turning curve to outline object) - Masking is lost **About masking; the SVG file which export from Illustrator, masking is lost too, but .ai .eps still work.
  4. Okay so I am clawing my way through the channels palette/masks to try to get somewhere...I have gotten really close to understanding the craziness that is masks in Affinity. My question is, when you right-click the mask once it gets generated on the layers panel, there is the option to edit mask. About the only thing I can do inside the mask is paint on with brushes to effectively manipulate the mask. But I cannot figure out how to apply an adjustment here. I felt like I had solved the riddle of the Mask! But I didn't. sigh
  5. How can I use the same mask for two different effects. One being B/W and the other color manipulation for the same photograph.
  6. Hello! I just can't find the way to create raster clipping mask to a group :( Is it possible? I attached photoshop example.
  7. It's extremely useful for intensive image compositing. Pleeeeeease )
  8. I have multiple layers that have vast objects and intricate detail. In illustrator I can just set the clipping mask on top of everything and it will clip everything, really powerful feature. I tried to replicate this in AD and cannot do it. This is a huge feature for me and I would like to see if AD can handle this. How can I do this? I already tried the usual drop layers techniques shown in a tutorial video, which works great, but haven't figured this out.
  9. 1. Trim transparent pixels. 2. Paste from layer to mask's layer.
  10. Seems to me that if you added the ability to control a mask's transforms without impacting it's content's transform, you'd have the same functionality as the Crop Tool is to the Draw Persona, with one huge advantage: There'd no longer be the conflicting conventions of Masking being represented as happening above a Layer (and the layer coming through the mask) vs Cropping (as it is now) being presented as something happening "beneath" the layer, when it's actually operating much like a mask in that it's sitting above and preventing content outside of itself from being seen. So how to do this with Masking? It looks like the [alt/option] key is going unused when editing the transforms of a Mask (Size, Scale, Rotation) ... except for position, in which case it is being used, for duplicate functionality. Almost a perfect solution, but not quite. Perhaps... I have the solution! Right now, [command + drag] is also doing duplication of an object. Leave that, and give up the [alt + drag] to mask editing independent of content and the problem is 100% solved.
  11. AD doesn't have an eraser tool like Illustrator, so I thought I'd try simulating it with masking in the Draw persona. Is it possible to make a Reveal All mask in the Draw persona (like you can in Photoshop?) As far as I can tell, the only sort of masking you can do in vector mode would be like the Hide All mask in Photoshop where everything but the solid figures drawn on the mask is hidden.
  12. Hi, the masking is somehow version 0.9 :-) I would love to (and need to replace PS) some more pimping here Binary masking (on-off) needs to be changed to more smooth transitions (GreyMask) Allow to feather the borders Allow to invert the mask (could not figure it out) I would also like to see (if possible and i did not get it - i am sorry): allow to include the adjustment details (where you perform the adjustments in the Studio (right pane) generate a pixel layer with one click that snapshots the current version some more will come with more testing ... but i am very convinced and very happy about what i see if you put it up for preorder i will consider for sure if you fix the masking :-) thanks for the great job Sascha
  13. Hi, I have just started using this great piece of software today and I want to apply a different grunge effect to two different layers. However when I use the mask it masks out all my layers. Is there any way to make the mask apply only to chosen layers? Thanks for any help :)
