Roughen tool/filter

Recommended Posts

Just a small question. I have been creating an ellipse logo for use with reflective Vinyl and I wanted the roughen the line of the ellipse but could not find any tool in AP or AD.  For those of you that may have used DrawPus in the past there was a roughen tool.  Is this sort of feature available in Affinity? I ended up painting a line around the ellipse to achieve the result I required. Cheers John

What kind of roughen? As far I know there is no "Jitter Tool" (maybe in V2?). Apart from your mentioned brush (or via mask) another workaround to get the ellipse less evenly could be with adding nodes (smooth) + switching node types. For instance:

The availability of a tool or function can be easily checked in Help:




P.S. Many threads on the Roughen effect can be found on the forum:
