This feature is unparalleled and extremely powerful.
redefines vector coloring.
Affinity should do everything in its power to support this feature.  @TonyB

This breakthrough feature is significant.

Thanks to the Affinity Designer development team.☺️

This feature would be great to have - not too dissimilar from CorelDraw's mesh fill tool from 2008 :)

I'm not familiar with CorelDraw.
So...

it was added earlier in Adobe illustrator 20?x(Non 2020)

Could it be that i've seen this ground breaking new functionality (or at least something coming close) in Logoist 4?

Looks like it.

  • Adobe Illustrators "Freeform gradients" were introduced in Illustrator 2019, released around november 2019.
  • Logoist 4 introduced "Multipoint Gradients" ("Use innovative new gradients by specifying color points, lines and Bézier curves") in april 2020.

 


I gave up using Designer for hobby use - a "professional" vector drawing program without actual vector features. Customers waiting for five years in vain is more than any company can ask for. Maybe if Affinity Designer 2.0 gets real and advanced vector features I can use it. Until then... I am a customer, a potential upgrader and an active observer with an opinion. Currently I am slowly finishing a project I started in Designer.

Further... give up and please hire an UX (usability designer), Serif. It is how professional software is made in this century.

Good tip, thank you.
Affinity designers absolutely want this!
This feature is significant for vector coloring.
It should be considered a basic necessary function.

I want to see it among the affinity designers.
It's beautiful, isn't it.

Yes, absolutely something the Serif people should put in a (not too far away) future version.

I certainly don't object to having the feature, but I've had that capability in CorelDRAW for close (plus/minus) to a decade, and I don't think I've ever actually used it in a finished piece!  So, not something I would make a high priority for Affinity development.

Oh, and the Adobe marketing?  "Revolutionary"?  "Unparalleled"?  Sorry, Adobe, you are late to the game and need to show that you've reached parity, much less being first and foremost.

I am not a vector professional user, I am a bitmap professional user. So it's really my ignorance.
I will use it often to supplement my bitmap. And it does upend the way the past is gradient, That's why I call it revolutionary.
It's not marketing. It's a strong stimulus. But it seems that the unexpected motivated you. (It's not my intention)
You don't use it, you can't represent everyone.
I use it, I can't represent everyone.
The minority obeys the majority.:)

I would use it all the time in Affinity Designer. So much easier to use to simulate natural light and shadow on faces, in fact whatever.

But Designer is the mother of all workaround design programs.
