Perspective tool malfunctioning


Recommended Posts

from the screenshot alone nobody can tell what happened, and if this is really a bug or maybe issues with the edit process. In some cases you can copy a PS workflow 1:1, but in many cases (like this probably) you need to learn a new workflow for Affinity products.

  • Can you upload the actual file (with history), and describe the exact steps (or even a screen recording)?
  • Did you use the live filter or destructive version?
  • What exactly did you want to achieve?

I really feel like I need to go back to PS :( 
Too many bugs, this isn't working at all.

Do you want assistance to gets this solved for your file, or already given up?

The perspective tools works in general, but the UI is sub-optimal. It is "optimised" for one use case: having a rectangular object, and changing the perspective to fit into e.g. a TV frame or Image on a wall.

All other use cases (e.g. having a perspectively distorted object, and getting it rectangular again) are painful based on bad UI.

The tiara was straight, this happened after using the perspective tool with the settings I have described.
I need it turned to the left to match the head's perspective, so perspective change and tilted back somewhat.
I have the newest AF update.
I can not upload the file, as client's face is on it, but I am uploading the tiara. Assistance would be grand, I need this image asap :(
Thank you!

I can't see what perspective you will need. 

As a workaround, I would cut the tiara into 2 parts left/right and use 2 dedicated perspective filters, one for each part.

I need the perspective I have posted I the first image, but without these broken lines.

Try the mesh warp tool instead, in order to deform that tiara slightly sideways. Both work Ok in v1 app.

☛ Affinity Designer 1.10.8 ◆ Affinity Photo 1.10.8 ◆ Affinity Publisher 1.10.8 ◆ OSX El Capitan
☛ Affinity V2.3 apps ◆ MacOS Sonoma 14.2 ◆ iPad OS 17.2
