I'm brand new to Affinity Design and I'm having teething problems trying to do certain things I'm used to doing in Adobe Illustrator. For example the custom brush, or a brush that is thin in a point at one end only and responds to pen pressure. Also I used to be able to draw this out neatly with a line from the pen tool and then drag the brush from the menu of brushes to instantly change the pen line to this stroke effect. What's the best way to customise this type of brush? (The pictures come from this custom brush tutorial suitable for Adobe Illustrator http://www.bittbox.com/illustrator/illustrator-how-to-make-custom-swooshes-swirls-and-curls ) Another question while on topic, I already have some brush files suitable for illustrator but wont open in Affinity, is there anyway they can work or be converted to work? Thanks
I made this video to show a friend how to make a watermark by creating a custom brush. When added as a layer, click once to act like a "Stamp" Only drawback is, once saved as a PNG, you cant change the color of your text, BUT, layer "Effects" work on the layer including, resizing, rotation, etc. How to Make a Custom Brush / Watermark https://youtu.be/9QBCKDGk8X0
In this tutorial I'm gonna show you how to draw a simple paper clip in Affinity designer. In the first step we will draw the single paper clip as a curve and will use the actions break curve and join curve. With the pen tool we will extend the curve so that it looks like a real paper clip. In the second step (8:18) we will link two paper clips together. Therefor we will use the function expand stroke and the operations devide and add. In the third step we will use a rectangle as a clipping mask to create the drawing for the closed paper clip brush (12:38). At 16:12 I'll show you how to export the paper clip drawings as transparent png files. Creating different brushes in AD and AP will been shown at 18:05. https://youtu.be/Iaq7lmSsVoA
I am not sure if this a bug or I am doing something wrong. I am trying to create a image base brush but the image is not showing up in the image well of the brush nozzle area. The image I have created is a .png image. the image was exported with the pure black and the background is transparent. Here are my steps. 1. Switch to pixel persona mode 2. Create a new category 3. Rename category 4. New Image Brush The brush paints in the canvas but is not visible in the brush editor. Also, it showing up black in the canvas. Does my brush have have to be gray scale for it to accept my color choice from the color pallet? Screenshot and png attached -Ronnie
