  1. Any Distortion, Warp, or Perspective distort features soon? This year? Any date release? I need to know if I need to change apps. What is everyone else doing to get around not having Distortion or Perspective distorts in Affinity Designer? Any tips?
  2. I'd like to share a labor with you all. I welcome your thoughts and critiques (and tips for next time too), my friends are either non-photographers or are too nice to tell me what they think. My unit has 24-hour operations so it's near impossible to get everybody together at once. Instead of waiting for a down-day, we just took photos at different times on different days and would splice them together. We had the option of doing sun-sync and trying to catch the shadows at the same angle each time, or just "storm the beaches of danger" and take the photos at wildly different times (my idea, to my regret at times during this project). My intent was to get a sunset, early morning, and mid-day shot for maximum contrast, but instead I only got about a 5-hour spread represented. Taken with a budget D3400 using kit 15-55mm lens and a borrowed D810 using 35mm prime. Sky replacement was done by the plug-in "Uplift - Epic Skies". I had to warp the photos (the left side crazily so) to get them to line up. Masks and adjustment layers on each. The folks and the hangar behind them were also taken separately from different photographs (one with the hangar roof visible and one with just their bodies/faces for clarity (except the right panel, I couldn't zoom in since I was using the prime lens that day), so five photographs (not counting the skies). I also had to clone the sides and ground because I didn't have enough coverage for an 8x10. Biggest errors I see are (1) it's not centered--that's my bad, I was focusing on the doors when I took the photographs and didn't realize the doors aren't centered on the roof (agh!); (2) the formation isn't straight (I'm thinking I could have done a last perspective shift after the entire thing was composed to level out roof horizontally and the formation horizontally at the same time); (3) many of the door windows don't line up; (4) the roof is masking-clipped, especially on the left (all that warping did a number and I wasn't careful on the cleanup). All told, 11 hours of work (I'm very... very slow at doing this)... 2.5GB file size (still can't figure out why, I think all the adjustment layers and masks maybe?)
  3. Would be nice if AP could straighten distorted object while cropping an image like Photoshop. https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/crop-straighten-photos.html It's useful for an image of buildings/documents
  4. Hi, Right now in Affinity Photo when you place an embedded document and use the perspective tool it gets rasterized. You can no longer double-click the layer to change the file. Same thing in Affinity Designer, there is not much you can do other than simple skew. /Fjord
  5. Hi! I'm struggling to to do this – https://www.dropbox.com/s/npwdnrt7meqdax3/AFT_ScreenRecording - 20190702_1935.mov?dl=0 – in any of Affinity software. Am I missing something? Lack of a solid transform tool feels to me like a deal breaker. Best regards P.
  6. I would love to be able to make titles like this fake impossible 3D look with the help of guides/grids built in the program. I don't mean changing the geometry but at least have the option beyond the isometric look. Thank you.
  7. - The possibility to rotate and delete the guides directly from the art board by click and delete. (at the moment i can only deleat a guide if i drag it out from the art board, and this is annoying!). Also, if not asking too much, convert a draw object into a guide. (like old FreeHand used to do...) - The possibility to change type case (Lower / upper). - Perspective distortion tool!
  8. I'll be the first to admit, I am NOT an accomplished photo artist. In fact, I would put myself at a "3" or "4" on a 1 - to - 10 ability scale. Therefore, I am always looking for more and more lessons to increase my skills and enhance my talents. In doing so, I hope to gain the most from the Affinity tutorials, given I'm a registered user of all three apps. And therein lies the frustration. In short, when I attempt to watch the Affinity tutorials, the presenter starts by introducing the subject, and then proceeds to open an image, and in doing so, nearly always opens up a series of layers he has already created. Unfortunately, he has also renamed them, so those of us who are learning, have no (grrrrrr) clue of how or why he created them. Therefore, HOW ARE WE EXPECTED TO KNOW WHAT, OR HOW HE IS PROCEEDING? It's obvious he is 'assuming' we all can successfully guess what the hell he has done, why, and with which tools. (Beyond frustrating; more importantly, it is a terrible representation of Affinity.) Specifically, these tutorials are high on the 'frustration menu': Blend Modes (https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/tutorials/photo/desktop/video/310319088/). He calls them 'render passes'. No definition of 'render passes', (I can interpret such a term in a number of ways given it's out of context. I spent the better part of any hour searching for 'render passes' without luck.) Layers (https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/tutorials/photo/desktop/video/311178905/). Even in this video covering basic layering, he begins with a highly populated list of layers. HE KNOWS WHAT THOSE LAYERS ARE, WE DO NOT! How can we get a strong, integrated understanding (i.e. without obvious questions popping up such as, "What are those layers, why did he chose them, and how did he create them?") It would only take a few minutes to explain them and build the lesson from the beginning instead of beginning the tutorial at some arbitrary point along a learning curve. At the least, reference those tutorials which provide the lessons for creating the components he is utilizing. The list of other similar examples is long. The solution is to include the steps he has left out prior to his video starting point. PLEASE, make videos for the audience, not the perspective of the presenter. If you are going to start with pre-created elements in support of a subject, take the time to explain them. You know what they are, but if you expect us to get value from the tutorial, you have to explain yourself so we are on the same page as you. Thank You.
  9. Hi Since the new version arrived there seems to be far less tutorials available In particular there was one on using the perspective tool (I know because I've viewed it before). It's now missing or else hidden away somewhere. Any suggestions?
  10. Buon giorno, scrivo questo post per riprendere due post precedenti che sono comunque interconnessi, chiedo agli amministratori di chiudere i miei due post precedenti. Uso un altro software con licenza GNU / GPL, o "darktable", e lo uso per una semplice ragione, sfruttando la libreria lensfun che è presente anche in affinità ma che è in grado di applicarla anche su file jpeg e usando un software gnu / gpl adattato allo scopo "ShitfN" per correggere le distorsioni prospettiche attraverso il rilevamento in gruppi di linee di fuga, sia che si tratti di linee verticali o verticali oblique, riesce a farmi guadagnare tempo prezioso nel correggere distorsioni e prospettiva, dato che Affinity ora applica il profilo dell'obiettivo solo ai file raw e non direttamente ma dopo il salvataggio, il che è scomodo, ma per me ancora poco pratico poiché utilizzo una fotocamera "Sigma".Inoltre Affinity per ora non ha una funzione di correzione della prospettiva automatizzata o almeno non di quella che funziona così bene, il risultato è che ogni volta che devi procedere a mano e in termini di tempo, diventa insostenibile ogni volta che devi cambiare un numero pieno di immagini. Chiedo quindi che, dal momento che questi due software, la libreria lensfun e ShitfN siano open source, fare uno sforzo e adattarli il prima possibile in quanto ciò fa la differenza tra un programma comodo e quindi utile e un programma bello ma non completo. Metti un video come richiesto, in modo che tu capisca di cosa sto parlando. Grazie Lorenzo correzione dell'obiettivo prespective correction.mp4

  12. A great feature I came to appreciate in other vector editors when doing perspective drawings or circular arrangements are slanted guides. In Designer, there are no slanted guides but the grid helps out. However, a full grid is not always needed. The workaround I use, is to make a "Guides"-Layer and put some lines on it as guides. With object snapping, these lines can be used as guides. Still, it would be nice to have an additional panel to set up slanted guides. Below a snippet from a program with slanted guides.
  13. I assume this is a bug, but perhaps I don’t understand how it’s supposed to work: When using the perspective filter in Affinity Photo, the grid keeps snapping and I need it not to. I assumed that toggling off ‘Autoclip’ would stop this but it doesn’t. Shouldn’t it? I’m on an original iPad Pro 12" running the iOS 12 beta and AP version 1.6.12.86.
  14. I need to warp text like they do in the Star Wars intro. I can’t figure it out. See the example. Howwwww?
  15. Is there a way to distort vector artwork along a defined shape? Is there a way to simulate tilting it backward into space, skew or warp the artwork?
  16. (Hover with mouse over the attachment thumbnails to see the images file name) How to reproduce: 1. Use Perspective Live Filter to distort an image or embedded document 2. Try to apply a Gradient Overlay Layer Effect 3.You'll get the error shown in the attached Bug.jpg Additional report: 1. Create a shape with a similar gradient 2. Try to mask it inside the layer with Perspective Live Filter (as a work around to the bug above) 3. You now get the attached Extra-Bug.jpg issue... Hope these reports help improving this feature. Mods/Devs, if you need to source file let me know and I'll share by PM. Thanks!
  17. a point that shoots lines in all directions that can be used for drawing better in perspective and that you can have multiple dots so you can make better forms for closer building the points may need to be outside the canvas
  18. Hi – I wonder if there is any way in Affinity Designer and/or Photo of doing the following. Imagine a can, say like a can of paint. I can draw a can that looks fairly 3D-ish, and/or use a photo of an actual can and overlay something. I then have a whole range of 2D labels, basically rectangles with text and logos on, that I want to paste over the can graphic (or can photo) in such a way that it looks distorted, like it’s actually wrapped around the can, like a real label would. I have played about with Mesh Warp and Perspective in Photo for ages, but can’t get anything that looks any good, and I can’t find anything in Designer that seems to do anything like this. I’ve read on the web that Photoshop does have some very limited 3D capabilities, and indeed I’ve spoken to someone who said they’ve done something like this in Photoshop (allegedly), but they could not give me any details (and I don’t have Photoshop anyway). Any suggestions what I could do in Designer/Photo?
  19. Hi, i'm just wondering about the live filter/perspective.Looks good at first sight, but subsequent corrections are nearly impossible. When the live filter perspective has been applied, any further mouse click is no longer related to the picture. Depending on how strong you corrected the distortion any tool you are usinf after the filter is no longer in sync with the mouse click. This makes this live filter useless to me. Or am i doing something wrong? Currently i'm using the normal filter for this, but this is destructive and cant be re-adjusted if you are not satisfied with the first attempt.
  20. I took a photo recently of two skyscrapers that are close to each other. I took the photo at 28 mm on my Canon T7i. The buildings do not appear straight and I tried to use both the single and dual plane perspective tool and cannot seem to solve the problem. I have attached the image. The file is 10.9 Mb and uploads are failing. Can you provide me with another method by which I can provide you the file?
  21. Hi, "personas"! I am new to Affinity, but I am learning fast and now I need help. After learning how to use gradient tool, I was working on perspective and noticed that the gradient effect won't follow the changes (see image). I am using Affinity Design and the gradient was applied to simple shapes. I don't want to rasterise them. Does anyone know how to make the gradient follow the changes? Thanks. Love, from Brazil
  22. I'm running Windows 64bit w/dual AMD 8950 video cards. In Affinity Photo, below, the image on the left is what I'm working with: I created a rectangle and then inserted a bitmap. Then I use Perspective to narrow the bottom of the rectangle. Afterwards, in the image on the right, I have chosen to change the bitmap with a different one and this is what happens. Is this a problem with AP or does it mean my vid card is screwing up? I've repeated this several times with other bitmaps and got the same results.
  23. Hi, I am using Aff. Designer for a while and I like it very much... Still, I miss few things which would be nice to be included in future updates: 1. Blend tool (to blend two drawings in desired steps...) 2. Better transform possibilities of objects (perspective, warp...) 3. Nodes transformation - to be able to transform group of nodes (to rotate and resize them).
  24. hello, is there a possibility to scale the perspective grid proportional. with a shortcut and the mouse. in ps i can set the corner points of the grid and then with strg-alt-uppercase enlarge the grid proportional. background : i set the corners of the main object and then i enlarge the grid to get more picture... thank you, wiso
  25. I think it'd be great for the perspective tool to work on the iPad in the same way it works on the desktop version. For example, on the DT version, I can grab each corner of a rectangle and place those corners wherever I need to. On the iPad ver. I can only move the entire shape into a perspective as a single unit.
