  1. The new timelapse feature is something I've been patiently waiting for, and am incredibly excited to start using with the official release of 1.9! After experimenting a bit with the beta, I've noticed some potential serious pitfalls for the way that the feature is currently intended to be implemented, and I have a few suggestions on how to improve on this. Firstly, the reasons why this feature may be limiting is as follows: You would need to make sure that you don't forget to toggle "Save History with Document" otherwise your entire process timelapse (hours worth of work) would be gone - I've done this a few times already. You're limited to your history states, and some projects (particularly illustration type projects) involve thousands of brush strokes and adjustments which would make it near impossible to ensure that your computer can save that many history states without getting really bogged down. That means you will need to cap your undo limit and subsequently override old history states meaning a chunk of your timelapse would likely be lost. Savings those history states will also create incredibly large file sizes, which is very impractical for anyone looking to use this feature. My ideas. In the old days (before Procreate along with its timelapse feature was born) there was a little app/widget called Schnapps for Mac - http://schnappsformac.com While the website is still up, I'm sure this app is no longer functioning or being updated in 2021, but it basically saved a snapshot of your canvas every time you saved your document. It had no direct impact on your document or file size, and had no relation to your history states or undo limit (which can be quite volatile if you aren't careful/mindful at all times). Upon export you could choose your desired video format (or looping gif) and also the playback rate. My proposal. Would it not be better for Affinity to use a similar approach? Instead of using the "Save History with Document" option, you can include a "Record Timelapse" option under the "File" menu, which can be on by default to avoid any accidental loss - or include it in the "New Document" dialog when creating a new document. Every time you save a document, the app can save a 1080px (1080px in height, and the width can be dictated by the canvas aspect ratio) snapshot in a folder within the app's program files which can then be recalled and assembled by the app when you select "Export Timelapse". That way the user won't ever see the snapshots or have to deal with big file sizes with limited history states as the timelapse files would be stored elsewhere on their computer. If, in the future, Affinity ever changed the way that the files are created, the timelapse files would remain completely unaffected since they would be existing snapshots, not past history states. Timelapses move pretty fast, so there's no reason to include every single step of the process in the playback, so in the long run every save-state would probably be a better option that ever history-state - either that or saving a snapshot, say, every 10 history states or so. Schnapps was a very simple and lightweight app, but it was incredibly effective at doing what it was designed to do. The only examples could find that I did with Schnapps (back while I was still a student) were these short videos - I did a little bit of post editing with them to add transitions and video elements, but the timelapses show the process: https://vimeo.com/111345964 and https://vimeo.com/107825113 I completely understand that the Affinity team has done a lot of work with the timelapse feature already, but I can assure you that nipping these potential future issues in the bud before it's actually released would make it a lot easier than accepting the limitations now and getting stuck them in the future after the feature is officially released. A lot of creative apps (Procreate, Sketchbook Pro, ArtStudio Pro, Clip Studio Paint, etc) now have timelapse features and have perfected them already, and it's become a highly sought after feature for the 'modern creative' so there's quite a bit of pressure to get it running smoothly and properly. Just my two cents, and thanks for making it through the super long post!
  2. Is there a way to create time-lapse videos from our Affinity Designer iPad versions? I'm looking for something like what Procreate has. Thanks!
  3. I'm currently trying out the free trial of Affinity Photo and decided to spend the evening streaming - I thought it would make a neat timelapse! The one major thing that I couldn't figure out was text on a path. Really enjoying how easy it is to transition from 14 years of Photoshop. I am excited to see what else I can do with this!
  4. I was wondering if Affinity Photo offers a capability to edit one photo ,and use it as a preset to instantly edit multiple photos with that preset for time-lapse purposes.In lightroom you can do it ,but can you do it in Affinity Photo?
  5. Hey guys! Here is my first post here, and this is my video about painting the Monster in Affinity Photo. Hope you like it! Feel free to share and subscribe to my YouTube channel! Best regards, Andrew Bzh.
  6. So I am trying to edit a star lapse I took by recording my macro then re applying it to a batch. However the results are way different when I do this. How come? I know the Macro is good because when I run it on just a single image it looks great. However when I run it as a part of a batch it doesnt even look the same. Whats the point of the batch processor if it doesn't work? I was really hoping to use affinity over Adobe products but its looking like for mass image editing nothing beats adobe. Might have to just suck up and pay to stupid monthly cloud subscription. ugh. Anyways the first image is my original macro ran on just a single image and then the image on the right is from the batch, and yes I used the same macro for both.

  7. One of my interests has been timelapses and recently I was able to try one out Now I've been looking for software for making timelapses but the various options I've seen are lacking in one way or the other. Which software would you recommend for creating timelapses? This is for Windows and free of course I need one that can give an output of 1080p and work with as many photos as possible, even 1500 Thank you Ps: I'm asking this because some time back a forum user recommended an excellent RAW converter software which I now use - so I'm thinking I can get the same help again
  8. Hey Everyone, Here is a timelapse video of me creating a watercolor still life painting in Affinity designer. I had a lot of fun playing with the different brushes and testing the different capabilities of the software. Enjoy! Here is the video from start to finish: https://youtu.be/y6l6-wOOf2A Let me know what you think? Thanks, Mike
  9. Hey everyone, it's been a while, but last week I've been working on and off on a Nissan Sunny B121 design. I had a lot of fun, so I thought I'd show it to you: I started off from a photo I got off of wikipedia. After vectorizing the main shape of the car, I decided to modify the design. I've been playing a lot of Auto Modellista (if you don't know the game and are into cars - check it out, it's a classic for the PS2) lately, so I decided to leave the car more cartoony and cell-shaded, instead of going for fully detailed design. I hope you like it and as usual below is the timelapse video. Thanks for stopping by! Timelapse Video (YouTube)
  10. I've always wanted to do timelapses and I've done quite a few before - but in all of them I've shot in jpeg and without any editing I'm preparing to do a night timelapse of stars at one of our national parks Most guides on the internet recommend shooting in RAW so that I can get the best look from the stars and night sky But as users of Affinity Photo know - there's no way to do batch edits on RAW files using Affinity photo So can I get a good timelapse if I shoot in JPEG? Or should I shoot in RAW and spend days in editing the RAW files? (3 minutes per photo, 600 photos - that's 30 hours of total editing time) Any advice?
