I really need something similar to Illustrator's "Blend" tool where you can have 2 vector options, make a blend, and they set the number of steps and some other properties used to create the individual steps in-between.

 

I don't see anything like this in Affinity Designer, am I just missing something?

 

Thanks.

Absolutely all my friends designers would like to use AD, and Blend Tool does not allow to do this. Initially, we did not even believe that such a powerful program lacks the most standard tool.

If it was possible do this to with a plug-in, it would be wonderful.

Are we getting this at some point?  I totally just got bit in the arse on a project when I discovered this wasn't there.  I know it sounds petty but it really is a major time drain not having it there.

Hello, it is now 2019 and there is still no Blend Tool. At this point in time has there been any updated ETA or plan to include it?

Yes, I'm also waiting for blend tool, because without it the transition to AD is simply impossible.

Many graphics programs had blend tools about a decade ago. It is an important advantage to using a computer for design, over drawing. Without it a digital art tool seems crippled. They would blend both colors and vector shapes. This was useful for both creating palettes with a custom number of even steps, as well as al sorts of shape manipulation. This was followed by improving upon warp tools, with puppet warp in photoshop and a mesh tool or tools in illustrator. Without these tools a digital program remains a "lite" program. The fact that Affinities 3 programs work together is no substitute for lack of functionality especially when the whole package costs $150.00

I just started using affinity designer and I was looking for the Blend Tool, because it's such an important tool in my workflow. Found this topic and now I'm a bit sad that it's been requested for over 3 years and still not there :(
