Hi guys and gals

 

I asked during beta testing if puppet warping was available and it wasn't at the time and I wonder if this is here or close? I have the latest version and don't see anything like it yet but maybe I simply can't find it.  Distortion or adding a warp mesh are not what I mean.

 

I refer to the ability to place a cut out figure or shape, place on a background and realistically manipulate parts of it.  For example to move an arm slightly as in Photoshop's Edit/Puppet warp feature.  This is the last feature I really, really miss from PS.  It requires a mesh on the actual shape not a overlaid grid as that causes too much distortion.

 

Thanks

Filter > Distort > Deform is like PS puppet warp (mostly)

 

hope that helps

Haha ... totally missed how to use that.  It is exactly what I needed!  It its even better than Photoshop's equivalent!  

 

Thank you.

However, it should me made into a "live" filter, so that we could tweak it, as needed.

Do you mean a persistent effect?  I didn't try returning to the test I did, so I didn't test see if it was still there.  I am not able to at the moment but yes, if that's what you mean then that would be very useful if the mesh remained until turned off by choice..

Yes, that is what I mean.
As it is now, is a "one operation... done!"
But being able to tweak it along a session of work or even after saving, closing and opening again, would be much better.

Agreed.  That would be extremely useful especially if it could remain on a rasterized image but I assume that isn't possible since even Photoshop can't do that?

Actually, Photoshop does have deform/puppet warp as a live filter. This is why we should have deform as a live filter in Photo too. At the moment in Photo we have to resort to making hidden duplicate layers in case we want to do deform on them again.

Hello, 

this feature is much appreciated. I mainly use PuppetWarp in Photoshop to straighten roads in orthographic photos (example of this is seen in the attached picture). 

The only feature I miss in AffinityPhoto's deform-filter is the abitity to rotate the deform-points (see picture of dog in Moacir Bragas reply above).

With this feature I could leave PS behind for good. 

Another goodie would be an option to determine the radius of effect of a point, but that is secondary.

So I request the rotate-feature to be added to the filter.

I need to go back and check out the latest Affinity Photo to see what's improved in this area.  I am still using PS in Adobe CC 19 since I got too frustrated with Affinity Photo as it was when I last posted on Feb 2016.  Sheesh, where does the time go?

 APhoto has deform in distortion filters, that on the face of it looks like it does what puppet warp does, letting you add points but it's pretty rubbish compared to puppet warp, it works more like a mesh distort -  I still use PS CS5 just for puppet warp
