  1. Hallo Affinity Community, mit euch möchte ich meine Länderflaggen Pinsel teilen. Optimiert sind sie für's zeichnen bei 1% Abstand damit ein Streifeneffekt entsteht. Geeignet also für z.B. Texteffekte. Einige Flaggen waren durch ihr Design für runde Pinsel ungeeignet. Um sie dennoch hinzuzufügen habe ich sie umgestaltet, möglichst ohne ihren Wiedererkennungswert einzuschränken. War z.B. ein Emblem mittig und dadurch beim zeichnen schlicht unsichtbar, verschob ich es ein wenig über die Kante des Kreises/Pinsels. Manche Flaggen besitzen deshalb 2 Versionen. Die Pinsel sind in englisch übersetzt, auf 4 Kategorien verteilt und alphabetisch sortiert. Ohne englisch Kenntnisse wird man sich auch zurechtfinden da die Reihenfolge der deutschen sehr ähnlich ist. Enthalten sind 193 Stück + 59 Zweitversionen mit einer Größe von je 500 Pixel. Anleitung für 3D Effekt mit zusätzlichem feinen Linien wie auf dem Vorschaubild: 1. Beliebigen Flaggenpinsel wählen und auf die gewünschte Größe ändern, z.B. 60 Pixel bei 2K Auflösung. 2. Eine neue leere Ebene erstellen und 1x mit dem Pinsel darauf klicken/malen. 3. Live Filter "Rauschen hinzufügen" an die Ebene clippen und Wert auf ca. 25 erhöhen. 4. Belichtungsanpassung ebensfalls an die Ebene clippen und Wert auf ca. -2,5 stellen. An diese Anpassung (nicht Hauptebene) einen vertikalen bzw. je nach gewünschter Lichtrichtung schrägen schwarz/weiss Verlauf zeichnen, sodass der Pinselpunkt oben hell und unten dunkel wird. 5. Ebene duplizieren um die originale zu sichern und das Duplikat rastern. 6. Mit angeklickter Duplikatsebene über Pinselpanel "neuer Pinsel aus Auswahl" wählen. Den Pinsel bearbeiten und Abstand auf 1% reduzieren. Der Pinsel ist jetzt fertig vorbereitet. 7. Auf neuer oder zwei neuen Ebenen (z.B. bei übereinanderliegenden Strichen wie bei Buchstabe A oder H) zeichnen, z.B. einen Text. 8. Ebeneneffekte "3D" oder "Kanten schleifen-innen" mit einem runden Profil hinzufügen (bei zwei Ebenen auch jeweils einen Ebeneneffekt für sich (Effekt kann seit Affinity 1.9 verknüpft werden)). Bei einer gewählten Pinselgröße von 60 Pixel empfiehlt sich ein Wert von 25 - 30. Optional "weichzeichnen" hinzufügen. Nun nur noch das Licht an die bei Schritt 4 gewählte Richtung anpassen. 9. Falls zwei Ebenen verwendet wurden kann auf der unteren gegebenenfalls noch ein Schatten, der durch die obere entsteht, hinzugefügt werden. Das verstärkt den 3D Effekt noch mehr. Fertig Viel Spaß english Hello Affinity community, i want to share my country flags brushes with you. They are optimized for round brushes by painting with 1% space to create a streakeffect. Because of some flags are unsuitable i had to edit them. This packs contained 193 brushes + 59 with a second version, separated in 4 categories, translated into english and arranged in alphabetical order. All have a size of 500 pixel. Tutorial for a 3D effect with additional fine lines like on my wallpaper: 1. Choose a flag brush and set it to a size you like, for example 60 pixel on 2K resolution. 2. Create a new empty layer and paint 1x time on it. 3. Add "add noise" live filter and clip it on this layer. Set the value to around 25. 4. Add "exposure" adjustment and clip it also to this layer. Set the value to around -2,5 and add a vertical (or other light direction you like) black/white gradient on this adjustment layer. Your brush dot is now bright on top and below dark. 5. Duplicate the complete layer to save your original. Rasterize the duplicate. 6. With active duplicate go to brush panel and click on "create brush from selection". Edit this brush and set space to 1%. The brush is now ready to paint. 7. Paint on a new layer (or 2 if your lines cross each other like for letter A or H for a deeper 3D effect). 8. Add layer effect (If you have 2 layers use 2 layer effects. Since Affinity 1.9 it is possible to link them.) "3D" or "inner bevel". I recommend a value of 25 - 30 when you paint with 60 pixel. Optional smooth the effect a little. For a round 3D effect use a round profil. Now only adjust your light direction to a similar like on step 4. 9. If you use 2 layers you can add a shadow on the layer below to increase the 3D effect. Done Have fun Country_Flags_A_-_F.afbrushes Country_Flags_G_-_L.afbrushes Country_Flags_M_-_P.afbrushes Country_Flags_S_-_Z.afbrushes

  3. The people of School of motion are a big fan of affinity and today they posted this very detailed and wonderful tutorial on how to export from Affinity Designer® to Adobe® After Effects@. It may seem a little bit cumbersome, but I think it's worth it...specially if you try to avoid illustrator. The link: https://www.schoolofmotion.com/blog/save-affinity-designer-vector-files-after-effects Have a nice one! B.
  4. Hey everyone, In this video I will walk you through the process of creating a poster design using thumbnail sketches with Affinity Designer. Before I begin working on a design project, I always felt that creating thumbnails is an essential part of the creative process because by sketching out thumbnail layouts, I am able to play around with different layout ideas and work more efficiently later in the design stage. It may not be for everyone but I hope that this video tutorial is helpful 😊. Thanks, Mike
  5. Hi everyone, I just wanted to let people know that I've put up a blog article explaining what layer blend modes are, how they are grouped together and what they do.

  13. Hello everyone! I'm new to the Affinity scene and love it so far. I've been a Lightroom user for years and decided that it's time to put the presets and sliders aside for a while and really take control of my editing. Enter Affinity. The purpose of this thread is to discuss workflows used when editing multiple photos from a photoshoot. I can't seem to figure out a truly effective way to edit 50+ photos without creating a mess. Any pointers, videos, web articles, or books are welcome. Thank you all for the support and I look forward to reading your responses.
  14. I've been using Designer everyday now for a few years, and occasionally I use photo to edit and touch up photos for work. I want to start enhancing up some family photos to go up round the house. Any general tips and/or recommendations as to which tutorials to have a look at first?
  15. Hi everyone, I've just uploaded a 90 page guide covering the absolute basics of Affinity Photo. If you go here https://theeagerlearner.com/ and subscribe you can download it along with the photos used in the chapters so you can follow along. This guide could be described as the written equivalent of my Affinity Photo: 5 steps to Better Photos course over at udemy. Actually it's the first chapters of a larger book I'm writing which will be the broad equivalent of the Affinity Photo: Solid Foundations course, also at Udemy. But it will be slightly different. I may not cover all the topics from the video course but I will be including written material about using the develop persona to process RAW files, for example. So why do this? Well, I'm aiming to sell the final book and I want people to have a clear idea of what to expect. I also think that if you are going to give something for free as a taster, you should give something good that's going to be of real use to people. It also gives you a chance to give any feedback to me here so I can match the final book to peoples hopes and wishes. So I hope it gives you plenty of useful information and I look forward to hearing any comments you may have about it. Cheers, Simon Foster

  19. Hey guys! Today I played around with the displace live filter. It’s a very nice and powerful tool to simulate folds of cloths, but also cracks in walls (like shown in one of the official tutorial videos by Affinity), grainy paper textures and so on … This is my first »tutorial« … ever. If you may call it one. So forgive me for eventual mistakes. Though It’s pretty much self-explanatory and not that hard to follow, I think. ;) Like I captioned the video: basically you want to create a separate image with a greyscale profile (at least that’s how I do it), reduced noise and texture plus a good balance between high, low and mid values. Grey fabrics work best if you want to change the colour afterwards. Maybe this helps, have fun playing around with different backgrounds! ;) Cheers Dennis
