  1. Hello! Affinity Photo is a really good software (except for the constant crashes). But it still lacks a simple basic and very important feature: BRUSH OPACITY CONTROLLED BY PRESSURE. If this option is somewhere hidden, please tell me. Oh and I don't accept that using pressure for the "Flow" option is an alternative. Common guys, many simple and free softwares have this: Krita, Gimp, Blender, or simple and cheap softwares like Artrage. I know this software is not made for digital painting, but I don't use it for that. I use it for render post processing, which is the same as phothography editing. And opacity pressure is very important to softly change masks, to add a bit of overlay or color dodge. So, (maybe someone already made this request) my suggestion is to simply add an opacity pressure button, just like the one Photo already has to control brush size, right beside it.
  2. Hi, I am using Affinity Designer on iPad Pro 12.9 inch (2018.10) + Apple Pencil 2, both iOS and the app are up to date, for some reason the vector brush tool won't work with pressure sensitivity. It's always fixed width no matter which brush I selected, and when I tried to adjust the pressure by dragging the pressure handles, it always came back to default settings. Could anyone help me with this issue? Thanks! O.
  3. I’m having trouble adjusting the pressure of my vector lines in Affinity Designer on iOS. It seems that whatever brush I first use to lay the line down needs to be temporarily switched to different vector brush and then switched back to my original brush before it will allow me to adjust the pressure. In my attached clip, I used the basic vector brush, but I’ve tried a handful of brushes from a handful of vendors and the behavior is the same. I have to ink, change the brush, and then change it back. For each line, it’s pretty rough. Can’t seem to find if there’s something under the hood I’m missing, or if this is expected behavior. (Thanks in advance, all.) E45911A8-D131-4BE5-AD98-9268E716A1CC.MOV
  4. When I use Vector Brush Tool, Controller: Pressure, and draw fast, the app will freeze. Watch the video: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1E6AUzLqCif6b0469aMTtcY_xW_iYNygD/view?usp=sharing If Controller : None, the app is normal. My version: Affinity Designer 1.6.5.135 windows10 x64 wacom intuos3
  5. I just tried affinity designer today and very disappointed by its brush. First it has no "soft" brush. Even if I set the hardness to zero it's still hard compared other software say ps. it got harder when I toggled on the accumulation pressure. Second, I found the pressure level is not high enough. The stroke I created in ps has a smoother gradients. The stroke had 80 levels of black and white but the stroke in affinity had only 60 so to speak. Did I miss some setting? how to solve these problems?
  6. Hi there I am using a Intuos M Pro (Model: PTH-651). I only have one problem while using the wacom. Whenever i am using the brush tool (non-vector) if the tip of my wacom grazes the surface it leaves giant dots. But if i actually press for a dot it is much much smaller. I'm not sure if it is actually a bug or not but it drives me absolutely bonkers, especially when digitally painting. As you can see in the second picture the large dots are with the absolute most minute amount of contact between the tip and the surface and the small dots are with the tip just starting to be pressed with actual pressure to the surface. It makes it extremely annoying when pantomiming shapes above the surface and end up with a bunch of massive dots. Thanks for any response. Also my tablet, AD, and AP are all up to date.

    Pressure Sensitivity Accuracy.

    Hey guys. Newbie here! So in a nutshell, I'm an illustrator who primarily draws in Photoshop using a graphics tablet. I've recently purchased both Affinity Designer & Photo in hopes to totally ditch the Adobe subscription thing. Working in the way that I do, once downloaded I immediately selected the Affinity brush tool (not the vector brush) in both apps to see how it performs, but for some reason my pressure sensitivity is not accurate as it should be. I'm experiencing this in both applications, but not in Photoshop, Clip Studio Paint, or Sketchbook Pro. What's shown in the attached images is all strokes that were made quickly using a stable pressure. As you can see the strokes in Photoshop are all very uniform and natural looking, but for some reason in Affinity apps my stroke pressure does not register accurately which makes it incredibly difficult to draw 'neatly'. Sometimes when I press very hard the strokes are incredibly thin, but then suddenly bulk up which causes the strokes to look blobby - the scribbles I made were done with the same amount of pressure throughout but for some reason they seem to start very thin, even with a decent amount of pressure, and then suddenly thicken without me even pressing harder. I'm working on an iMac. I've look up a bunch of tutorials to make sure that I'm using the brushes properly, but they don't seem to play well. Is it just me, or is this a known issue? In the last attached image some of the strokes didn't even register at all like the cross bar of the "F" in "of".
  8. Hello guys, I would like to ask you, if there is any possibility how to set pressure of the brush while using pen tool? not just the same widht brush. thank you
  9. I downloaded the trial yesterday, and while the tablet works fine with photosop, krita and illustrator, Affinity designer does not response to pressure changes AT ALL. I tried reinstalling the drivers, changing the brushes, fiddling with the setting, rebooting, and nothing seem to work. OS: Windows 10 x64 build 1607 desktop Tablet: Huion 1060P (new 8192)
  10. Currently every time I start a new document I have to set the Pressure Controller for a brush manually. Would like to be able to set it as a default either in the Tools preferences or in Edit > Defaults > Save as Default.
  11. Hi Affinity Team, Please fix the issue with the pressure brush. This is the 5th time it crashes whenever I use the brush with the pressure activated. The crash does not happen immediately but it crashes after some time. Im using a late 2015 iMac 5K, 3.2 GHz Intel Core i5, 24 GB 1867 MHz DDR3, AMD Radeon R9 M390 2048 MB.
  12. Hi, I've just bought Affinity Designer for Windows (I have Windows 8.1 pro). Unfortunately, pressure sensitivity on my tablet Wacom Intuos doesn't work. I've read everything related to this topic and tried every solution written on this forum. Still, nothing works for me :( I really need the solution, cause this feature is very needed in my commercial project - frankly speaking, I bought Affinity mostly because of this project, so I hope you'll find solution in the nearest future.
  13. Using a Wacom Intuos. When I use pressure settings for flow, the brush will render correctly over unfilled pixels, but previously colored pixels will fill erratically, resulting in jagged edges and sub-layer bleedthrough. This makes rendering and building up values absolutely impossible. New to Affinity photo so this may be a settings issue, but I lowered DPI and fairly certain it's not hardware related. I rely on this for income so please help if you can point me in the right direction.
  14. In my humble opinion, the pressure control in AD is too simplistic. I suggest the developer to implement something like this. If you worry about cluttered UI, you can hide it behind an "advanced" button. Or set it like grid and guide manager. In the right, there should be a list of mathematical function (like the brush pressure editing) and save profile. This is just a suggestion, the developer of course know better and i believe they could expand on this better. .
  15. I've been using both Affinity Photo and Designer for a few years now, both with an old WACOM bamboo create which has served me pretty well (no outstanding issues whatsoever!), but I just got a brand new 2048 sensitive tablet as a gift (Adesso Cyber Tablet T12), and I've been having a hell of a time trying to figure out what is going wrong with the sensitivity settings in Photo. I've gone through the Tablet driver settings (all the most recent) and the sensitivity is definitely working on the Tablet itself, but despite updating everything to the most recent versions for both my computer and Photo, the pen just doesn't register the pressure sensitivity properly. While it does register pressure, it's so weak that I have to legitimately push down to get any lines out of a brush with pressure turned on, despite the sensitivity being turned on to maximum through the driver set up. Non pressure sensitive brushes draw and track fine, and I can lightly tap to select menu items without any issues, but for some reason the brushes themselves just will not work properly. And this is the same with Affinity default brushes as well as custom Photo and Photoshop brushes. I've gone through everything to try and find a way to boost sensitivity to the brushes, but I haven't found anything. Is this a hardware-to-software issue I'm just going to have to hope gets solved at some point, or is there anything I'm missing that would help?
  16. As per title: a line can be either solid with a pressure profile, or dashed, but not both. See this thread for discussion and my current workaround, but it is less than ideal. Thanks.
  17. Hello, Feel free to sacrifice me to the vector gods if this thread is posted in the inappropriate forum and if so, it's Russian hackers fault. :P In all seriousness... I have attempted through many methods of trying to gain pressure sensitivity with my pen display the Monoprice MP-22 (latest drivers available). I have cycled through all the options like selecting pressure in the controller options, making sure brushes are set to pressure in their dynamics, etc. I have tried a few suggestions from other threads: (Monoprice support claims their software is supported, by the way) 1. Plug in the device before AD is opened 2. Plug in the device after AD is opened 3. Install the Parblo Coast 22 Drivers (Monoprice is a rebranded Parblo or vice versa) 4. Install drivers with and without AD installed on the system to check order of install 5. Praying deep and hard for salvation. ..and all have landed me with zero results. This makes me sad. Very sad as my affinity for affinity has grown. :wub: Any chance at some insights to possible solutions or if updates are planned? Thank you :D

    Light pen pressure errors

    Hi, I'm learning some digital painting techniques and hoped to use Affinity Designer for my work. However, I'm experiencing errors when using my pen tablet and light pressure during faster work. Basically, it seems as if: 1. Clicks are registering and therefore leaving single circles/stroke shapes at random times 2. The drawing isn't starting at the beginning of applying pressure, but rather, after a short amount of movement. Here's a video: http://take.ms/D21u2 Can anyone shed some light on this issue? I'm not experiencing the problem in Photoshop or Krita. Thank you.
  19. Lots of times when I break a curve then play with the stroke pressure profile to widen or shrink the stroke widths... it would be super cool to have a quick flip feature to just switch the profile width direction, instead of doing it manually. Currently we have a "save profile" and "reset" button and there is still room in the centre for a "flip" button or the even repurposing the existing icon from the tool shelf could work here, see attached. :-)
  20. Hi, I'm using Sierra with a Wacom Intuos 4 medium. There is something going on with the pressure sensitivity in AP. There may bea second issue that affects both AP and AD but I'm not very clear about it. Issues 1) [only AP] The first issue that I notice is that when you tap without dragging, AP will draw a dot with a very large radius (would say around 3/4 of the max radius), disproportionate to the actual pressure applied. This is particularly evident if you try to draw lightly with the stylus barely touching (<10% pressure); whenever it loses and momentarily regains contact with the tablet surface it draws blobs like ink spill as seen in the image blow and demonstrated in the 1st video linked at the end. 2) [both AP and AD] I'm not 100% sure about this one (maybe it's in my mind), but I have the impression that the minimum pressure range but also the maximum pressure range that AP and AD read are capped compared to what my tablet will output (as seen in the drivers' test area) or CSP (Clip Studio Paint) will utilize. It's definitely not a bid deal, but I thought I should report it nonetheless. Video demonstration I've linked 3 video files: 1) The 1st shows drawing a stroke alternating between using minimum pressure for a few seconds, and then max pressure a few more as seen in the Test Area in [system Preferences] -> [Wacom] -> [Customize...]. After that it goes on showing how the same exact pattern appears in Affinity Photo (while on the right you can see the diagnostics of the tablet showing the actual pressure). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4dny6nicIIA (AP is creating these unpleasant circles) 2) The 2nd video shows how this appears in Affinity Designer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rlFVuauzUxA (just fine!) 3) and the 3rd one how it is in Clip Studio Paint (manga studio). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2__eJJwhcQ (notice how the thinnest stroke in CSP is thinner than the thinnest in AP and the thickest is thicker) All 3 programs, and the wacom driver have been set up with linear pressure response, starting from 0. Notice that by default the wacom driver doesn't start from zero as seen in the image below. Hope these help! -Fotis
  21. Hi all, I am having the pressure issue other are having with Wacom Tablets, but I have slight difference: I am using an Intuos 1 tablet that uses a serial port. I am using a Keyspan adapter to convert it to a USB port. So I am gettting pressure in other programs like Microsoft paint, so I am at a loss as to why it is not working in Affinity. Any thoughts?
  22. Hello. I would like to know if there is possibility to set the pressure sensitivity of a Wacom pen. I would like also to have some pencil brushes. Do they exist in Aphinity photo? Or do I need Aphinity Designer for this? I want to do some sketching. Thank you. With Kind Regards. Jozef
  23. Hi, I have 2 spheres with just an outline. I added some pressure to it via the Stroke tool diagram. On one sphere a pressure of 0 is working correct (no outline), on the other one it isn't. See here: I attached the afdesign file. Is this a bug?! bug.afdesign

    Purple Heart

    Hey all, here's the latest piece I've just finished in 1.6 b1. It's a fun and colourful graphic Heart illo I'm selling on Redbubble (shameless plug). ;-) Yes I know it's pink but purple heart sounds better. It's basically all line work with some filled in shapes but it's really the first time I've done a piece like this in Designer using the path or stroke pressure feature pretty much exclusively. It takes a little getting used to but it ended up feeling really nice and comfortable and kinda slick as compared to illustrator's method. Gotta say though, the expand stroke nodes situation is still a major issue for me as I usually expand and unite everything to make a watertight piece. It almost forced me to abandon Designer for this and jump back to illustrator. But I stuck with it and I'm happy with the final product. Here's a link to my Redbubble page showing it on various products. The bold colour and linework really pops. https://www.redbubble.com/people/kevincreative/works/26652427-purple-heart-i-know-its-pink-but-there-it-is
  25. Hi Folks, I'm struggeling with a simple rectangle that has a pressure based stroke (no fill). I'm getting the following result and can't explain the corners appearing in the middle of the horizontal lines. Is it a bug or am I doing something completely wrong? It seems to work OK and as expected with most other shapes ... (Circle, Triangle, Square with rounded corners) - does show the same effect though with the polygon On the other side the Ellipse gets problems with intersecting parts of the curve: Cheers, Timo
