Hey animationhalo, I'm able to address some of your points:


1) Are you on Windows? If so, there is an issue with some actions not being recordable (whereas they are on the Mac version). The developers are aware of this and it will hopefully be addressed soon.


2) There is an offset filter, it's called Affine (see Filters>Distort).


3) There are multiple tools - there's a Perspective Tool and Mesh Warp Tool (the perspective tool can do single and dual planes) - you can find them on the tools panel on the left (above the Zoom Tool). There's also a live version of the Perspective Tool so you can use it non-destructively.


4) Are you able to elaborate when you say not useful? Are you using the Move Tool?

James, I assume this Windows limitation also applies to selections. I started to record a macro to automate the process of adding a border to an image and got an error indicating selection could not be recorded.


I hope this will be fixed soon.


By the way, thank you for all the helpful tutorials.
