  1. I'm curious if there is a setting to define the "tolerance" or "sensitivity" for the selection brush? Currently the behaviour is quite "unsatisfying" See the example video. The brush is positioned in one of the lightest areas of the picture but it instantly selects the darkest parts even though there is a very clear border between light and dark and the brush is reasonably small. Since I did not find any parameter to configure the behaviour this might be a topic for improvement. Cheers, Timo Selection.mp4
  2. As a digital artist and Mattepainter the painting component in any software is extremely important. Now with many levels of sensitivity available on the computer and iPad its become something we all lean very heavily on. AP’s dynamics for the pen has an issues I think needs immediate attention. When painting in broad or fine strokes AP struggles with the sensitivity when the pen hits the screen. Random stamps of the texture occasionally are splattered on the page even on the lightest touch of the pen. This becomes extremely annoying by having to undo the last stroke. Painting has become a less free and easy thing to do while im constantly watching out for this. I’ve tried playing with the setting but unfortunately it makes no difference. Ive attached a video where this is demonstrated by light taps on the screen. This is about as hard as I usually paint when moving through a piece I’m working on. So to paint a stroke with the flick of the brush after this contact it randomly creates this frustrating splatter. As you’ll see in the video I show this effect in AP and then move to Procreate, where it doesn’t happen at all. I want to remain painting in AP and keep it as my preferred choice of software. Both apps are great for painting but this is sad AP is not up to Procreate’s pen sensitivity level. Im curious to know if anyone else has experienced this and find it to be a problem?
  3. Hi Serif team, Thanks for the great new update and some fancy new features and bug fixes! Also thank you for addressing the brush tool dynamics in this update. However it seems to not be working exactly as it should be. Ive attached a vid to show how the dynamics should perform with light to heavy taps of the pen. The first demonstration is in AP, as you can see the tip size doesn't change with the light and heavy taps of the pen, nor does it reach the full wide of the brush size. This might be ok if the pen sensitivity button wasn't turned on. Being able to turn on and off the sensitivity is great thing for control. Unfortunately none of this is working. In the second demo (Procreate) you can see how the brush tool response perfectly to light and hard taps of the pen. It changes in flow and size reaching the final brush size at maximum impact. For quick sketching or painting the artist relies on this when placing the pen back onto the page. Having the pen dump a stamp of the brush that's the same size every time can require going back for cleanup and less control for design. Please consider this to be a priority for AP in the next update. Regards Andy
  4. 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?
  5. can anyone tell me how to adjust the pressure sensitivity on affinity photo?
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. I decided to try out Affinity Photo today and found that pressure sensitivity doesn't seem to work at all for me. I'm aware of how to setup brushes to use pressure in the brush settings dynamics section and also tried using the "Force pressure to control size" button, but nothing seems to work. I use a Monoprice rebranded UC-Logic tablet (the PF1209). While one may be quick to say, "I've never heard of UC-Logic/Monoprice tablets; you can't expect that to work since it isn't Wacom," the thing is that this tablet works with anything that supports Wacom tablets. Both Wacom and UC-Logic tablets, as well as many other brand tablets, use the same WinTab API that programs use to support tablets. Any program using this standard, which Affinity Photo seems to since it loads WinTab32.dll, should more or less be able to work with any tablet that's designed to use it, which this tablet does. I use this tablet without issue in Photoshop, Clip Studio Paint, Maya, Paint Tool Sai, and ZBrush. It even works with Wacom's extremely unusual WebTablet plugin for Firefox. While I can't claim to know how exactly Affinity's tablet support is programmed specifically, there shouldn't be any reason my tablet wouldn't work with it. With that said, pressure sensitivity is something that's 100% crucial to me in a program like Affinity Photo. I hope the pressure sensitivity issue is something that's being investigated because it seems to be an issue affecting many people. I'm just posting to say I'm another one of those people for whom pressure sensitivity doesn't seem to work and that it seems to be an issue that affects more than just Wacom tablets.
  9. Hi, I'm calling this a bug, because similar apps don't display the same problem (Illustrator, InDesign, Skecth, etc). When scaling text using a two finger gesture on the trackpad, Affinity doesn't seem to know when I've left go/stopped. It always seems to nudge the text another point up or down. In other applications, when I stop moving and let go of the trackpad, it stops modifying the number. I'd get over it if there were sliders or I could use the keyboard arrows, but as it stands I'm hitting CMD+Shift+Option+> just to increase a point size. Thanks for reading.
