Vector brush

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Just bought a copy of Affinity Designer. So smooth and lovely to use, especially the bezier handles!

 

I'm using the software with a Wacom Cintiq and have found the Vector brush is rather unreliable. Although the line drawn seems to respond perfectly to the pressure applied, when it is is turned into a bezier curve the shape doesn't seem to match. Sometimes it's close; other times it is completely different, showing no change in line width at all. The similar function in Adobe Illustrator works absolutely fine. Is this a known bug?

 

Having the pressure profile graph is fantastic, but I wonder if this could be resizable to make even finer adjustments possible?

 

Steve.

Hi Steve,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Affinity Designer smooths out the line after you have created it so it may not be an accurate reproduction of what you've drawn. Currently there isn't a slider to control this behaviour but it's something that was requested quite a few times and may be implemented in a future update/version.

Yes, I gathered the line is smoothed to some degree, which I can appreciate. And having a slider for smoothing would be fantastic. My complaint is really to do with the width of the line, sometimes it just doesn't match the pressure applied or change at all. This is odd as the line produced as you draw matches exactly - it's when this line is turned into a bezier curve.
