Affinity Photo: Is there a way to make the pixel tool use pen pressure for accumulation/opacity?


Recommended Posts

Hello,

Recent convert from Photoshop here, and I'm pretty happy with Affinity's products so far! Transition has been fairly easy, and lots of features to like.

One problem I'm having, however, involves the Pixel Tool. I did a lot of my pixel work in Photoshop using their Pencil tool, with pen pressure controlling opacity. However, when I attempt the same thing with AP's Pixel Tool, pen pressure seems to be binary? Like 0-50% pressure = no mark made, 51-100% pressure = 100% opacity.

Am I missing a setting somewhere?

The brush tool seems to behave correctly to pen pressure, but I want the rough/aliased edges of the pixel tool, not smooth/antialiased edges that Paint Brush Tool produces.

Also, bizarrely, the pixel tool's size seems to work fine with pen pressure. Just accumulation is on/off like this.

Any suggestions? I've attached a screenshot of both the brush and pixel tools attempting the same stroke with a pressure pen (Huion Inspiroy H950P).

Best,

Dan
