Affinity Photo has very few brush dynamics settings. I was using a tutorial to create a dynamic cloud brush in photoshop (Here is the tutorial) but this is not possible in affinity photo. Also importing the exported ps brush results in a brush that is nothing like the exportet version from photoshop.

Yeah, Photoshop brushes have more settings, therefore there's not a lot you can do about that until Serif are in a position to add more.

I think the main problem you'll have with the video is for the second brush he uses a 'Color Burn' mode and depth setting for the texture, which obviously Affinity Photo doesn't have.  It's usually the missing texture and dual brush settings that have been problematic for me when I've been trying to replicate a brush.

For something like clouds, it's maybe be better using clouds from another photo anyway, rather than using a brush.  Either directly or make a stock image with transparency that you can re-use.  However, if you want to use brushes I've attached a couple of brushes that are similar to the ones in the vid, which you can play around with and hopefully get what you're trying to achieve.

Thanks for the reply.

The fade option for the brush was also missing and the texutre is not applied in the same way as in ps. These were the issues I also found while trying to replicate it.

I hope this can be added soon.

 

And thanks for the brushes, I will try them out :)

What did you mean "in a position to add more" ? Are they legally restricted from adding more options or what ?
