  1. Affinity SVG redender issue in Photo.zip Hi, I think there is an issue with SVG image rendering in Affinity Photo V2. I imported the same SVG image in both Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer. Set all the settings to similar state and then zoomed in. I saw the though the Designer rendered the SVG image perfectly the Photo rendered with some jagged edges. You can find the Designer and Photo files and the screenshots of my settings in both the apps. Please confirm if this is a bug or not? Thanks, Sanal
  2. I have some screenshots about the problem. If you look at the stroke (2px) you will see a difference on the SVG (White BG). Has anyone had this issue ? Im on MacOS Ventura. Thank you!
  3. I've noticed that any image I save as a native AFPHOTO file will render blurry when read back in. EDIT: More info on the steps to reproduce Steps to reproduce: Open an image in Photo, any raster image (png, jpeg) seems to work, but images with sharp lines are easier to notice Save as AFPHOTO as you normally would Close the file, reopen it again Notice the image is blurry when compared to the original, and then close the file Use File -> New to create a new image file, any image file seems to work, but let's go with Web -> QFHD resolution Drag the same file from step 1 into the document, rasterize the layer so it's a 1 on 1 comparison with above, so there's no doubts Save the file as AFPHOTO and close it Reopen the file just created, notice the image is sharp and working as expected Seems like Photo is storing something, like the DPI scale, incorrectly when saving a raster image into APHOTO files? Stranger still, I don't think the files are damaged at all. If you open the AFPHOTO file in Affinity Designer or Publisher, it looks normal and sharp. So this is something limited to Affinity Photo's render. Changing the Renderer to WARP or disabling OpenCL does not solve the issue. I did notice something odd though. If you change the View Quality to Nearest Neighbour the AFPHOTO file will look pixelated, this shouldn't be happening. Indeed if I swap back to the PNG version of the image, even with Nearest Neighbour the image looks sharp, as it should. Feels like there's some sort of internal error on the app itself, as if it's rendering the file internally at... half the resolution I'd guess? Let me know if you need further information. Thanks!

  4. Hey everyone, I am using Affinity Design for designing icons on Windows 10. When I'm finished I am exporting them to an svg. My Problem is, that it seems the objects move at some points a little bit or the border of objects gets streched. Maybe you can spot the differences at this simple icon. Icon in Editor: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1blrVFYoml01-97CSZWnUMNkC8Fx1y8PA/view?usp=sharing Icon after render: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1iv7ObpwQ5C6ABQKzkC9nM90Plw2xQLDM/view?usp=sharing Only a few mistakes marked How can I fix this? Do I use a wrong resolution or generall wrong render settings? Best regards, Filip.
  5. I recently updated to Affinity Photo, from the Microsoft Store. I had no problems with the previous version, but this version has a strange problem: Whenever I perform an action such as a Merge Down on an effects layer, committing a Live Projection Layer, exporting a picture as a .jpeg, or similar actions involving rasterization, random pixels (often in thin rectangles) are rendered. The pixels appear to contain information from the previous history layer. For example, after making a picture darker and merging down the layer, there may appear pixels that are still as dark as the original layer. Or when making an edit involving a projection layer and then removing the layer, there may appear pixels that are transparent. Attached is an example. The original picture (with a disabled brightness adjustment), then darkened and merged with the brightness adjustment, contains a few pixels that are still the original brightness (which can be seen by the history brush). This happens with many other operations. This is a critical hinderance to my workflow, slowing me down by having to use trial-and-error and undo-redo until the pictures render properly. Any attention or support appreciated!
  6. Hi, I have found a bug. In the file opened in Designer visualization is ok but if I export on pdf a part of file have a not good quality. Why? Thanks
  7. Hi guys! Here are some sink visualizations I did last year. Postproduction using Affinity Photo. Hope you like it! Be safe!
  8. Hey everyone, thanks to the great OCIO support and the performance, I´m using affinty photo more and more to process my still linear exr renderings out of octane for cinema 4D. Unfortunately I'm having an issue with alpha masking of groups with this workflow. These are the steps I take: 1. I'm rendering a half float linear exr and use the "object layer color" for alpha masking [because it's faster to render inside of octane]. 2. I take the exr into affinty [] 3. Use OCIO to convert the Image to sRGB 4. Below that, I adjust my exposure if necessary 5. On Top, I have a LUT to convert the Image to sRGB ICC 5. I right-click my black and white (but still RGB) object layer color and rasterize to mask 6. I drag a drop the mask on my grouped beauty [regular beauty and denoised beauty] 7. As a result, the mask is very pixelated and unusable. Masking a group seems to cause the problems. Without the group everything works with and without OCIO. The same mask and grouping works fine in Photoshop. The Photoshop files looks different because its without OCIO but adjusted exposure, otherwise it would be way too bright. Thanks in advance!
  9. I bought an image off of Shutterstock as an eps and it doesn't seem to be rendering completely in Affinity Designer. I checked to see whether it was just a WYSIWYG issue so I exported it as a JPEG. Unfortunately, the jpeg had the same issues. I Have attached the original Shutterstock file, the Affinity file I have used the eps in. Tried to upload the jpeg to this forum but kept getting upload errors so gave up. shutterstock_615545459.eps Panel_2.afdesign
  10. I've had this issue for several versions now, wondering if it's a problem with the software or if perhaps there's something wrong with my graphics card. Posting here to see if anyone else has had a similar issue. Not always, but every once-in-a-while, I will get slight 'offsets' or skews on screen. The attached screenshot (full-size so that you can see what I mean) shows the breaks (look at the vertical middle of the letters) Usually it goes away if I close Photo and re-start it, which makes me think perhaps it's the software and not my video card, but I am not sure. Another interesting tidbit is that the 'breaks' stay the same when I zoom in (or out) and pan (see second image). Is this a known issue? Or one that other people sometimes encounter? Or is it likely to be my own system? Thanks!
  11. Hello! I'm an interior designer and I make renders using V-Ray Next. My problem is that my renders look kind of "glossy" and "wet" compared to renders made by 3D artists which look "dry" and clean. Is it something that can be achieved in post production only? Where should I look for the solution? Denoise? Sharpening? Any advice is greatly appreciated! /1st image is my render, the 2nd one is the look what I would like to achieve./
  12. Hi, I am new to Affinity Photo but have used Photoshop for a few years. Is there some way of stroking or rendering a curve? regards Beckett
  13. Hi, Is there anyone who succeeded to recreate some sort of Render Clouds filter effect that works on an empty layer? In Photoshop you can create awesome backgrounds with it! Did try Perlin noise but it is not the same. Regards & Thanks, David
  14. render , modeling . and do the adjustments in the affinity photo .
  15. I am learning the render of the 3d model , and do the post adjustments with the affinity photo, its a kind of practice .
  16. recently I have learned to make the model of mountains and snow, and make the post adjustment with affinity photo . here is the work: and hope you like it .
  17. Hi guys I mainly work with 32bit rendered EXR files. When I'm comping rendered objects into backplates, I need to be able to have coloured masks. This is to ensure shadows that are in alpha (masked), creates the correct tone on the backplate. A coloured mask can for example produce a blueish shadow, where a grey scale mask will produce a grey shadow. Is there perhaps a setting I'm not seeing? Whenever I convert a layer to a mask, it goes greyscale!
  18. Hi, Before I switched to Affinity Photo I used Photoshop CC. In the brushes tool of CC there were render brushes with things like grass, trees etc. ​Are these available, or will they be made available as a plugin for AP?
  19. Gents, any word on sigma support? https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/30464-affinity-15043-and-sigma/
  20. So let me first start off by saying I am a visual designer. I do graphic work, but I have been trying to draw more lately. I spend a lot of my time doing corporate branding type work. Now that Affinity Designer is here it really has freed me from the Adobe world. I am not very good at drawing directly into the computer( I really not as good at drawing as I want to be either) and to be honest I prefer to step away from the screen and doodle in a sketchpad. After I am done doodling I take a picture of my work with my phone and import my drawing. I use the drawing tools to trace, alter, clean up, and embellish my work. This is my first go beyond doodling and it was all completed in Affinity Designer! I did not experience one crash. The program is as fast, smooth and intuitive as they say. I am looking forward to growing with this application! So much to learn so little hours in a day! Thanks guys! You really are putting a powerful and respectable tool in our hands!
  21. Hello, Found bad rendering in the Pixel view mode. If you put some light object inside a dark object there is dark outline around the parent edge with alpha pixels. blue-outline.afdesign
  22. So, i was trying to export a document to PSD but afte i set it to export it nothing happens, i've tried waiting but nothing, in very rare ocasions it actually starts to render the file but it doesn't show any progress, the progress bar just stays at the beggining like forever. Is this a common issue right now or is it just happening to me? UPDATE 1: It seems to be the document, i tried exporting a different one and it gives no problems, i'm gonna try to copy the elements from this one to a new one. UPDTATE 2: I tried recreating the first artboard of the document on a new one, everything worked well until the moment i saved the document, after i saved it i was unable to export it as PSD, after i hit save (in the export window) nothing happens, and nothing new shows in the history window (normally when u export it shows something new), i'm gonna try exporting from the export persona and see what happens UPDATE 3: It seems like the problem is in the export option, if i open the document and try to export individual png files from the export persona it gives no trouble, i can also export it as PDF from the "file" menu, but, if i try to export it as PSD from the "file" menu then nothing happens and i cannot export it in any other way, not even in persona. Is there any other way to export as PSD?
  23. hello, i think i have a little problem here, in the first picture according to the guidelines two rectangular looks connected but in the second picture looks a little gap between them. +If I a little bit more enlarge the bottom rectangle gray line disappears. so, top rectangle fill 100% black no stroke bottom rectangle fill 100% black no stroke zoom level 100% could u examine attached the file? may be this could be a rendering problem? or smart guiding? thank you.
