[AD] How warp / distort object without warp /distort tool

Recommended Posts

I have traced logo in Affinity Designer. I have object open book cover. I want simply put logo adjusted to cover. Idea ilustrate sample picture:

On X and Y axis is simple - click on object, put value in navigator or move by Move Tool [V]. Using small circle I can rotate object. I want distort object to achieve effect similar to circle with shape on the left before text Dodo Case - it is what I mean by adjust in Z axis. Normally I would use distort or mesh tool but in AD is not available. I try select object and use Node Tool [A] to make this, but I'm not very happy with result. I have logo with man with a lot of points and adjusting this is quite troublesome (I have two groups - first is a complicated shape and second are bunch of simple circles). I try use S in Navigation to shear object and is at this time the best option for me.

 

So then only available option is use Node Tool or S in navigation to achieve adjustation on Z axis or maybe can you sugest me another and better aproach?

Hi Affi.usr,

 

Welcome to the Forums :)

 

Using shearing would really be the only way to do this unless you also use Affinity Photo. We have had a few feature requests in the past for the Perspective Tool from Photo to be added to Designer so its something me may consider in the future.

Hi Callum,

 

thank you for your answer!

 

I hope this tool will be available on vector editing in AD. I can't edit element on the same time on AP and AD as I suggested here. If it will be posible I can make this faster what I want. At this stage of development is start project in AD, few times make adjustation in AP and is too long for me.

As much as I love AD the fact that is still not possible to distort an object is the reason why I can not use it for my job. I would strongly suggest to make this improvement a priority because I know that "distortion" is an operation that vector designers use a lot in their work.

+1 vote for a distort/perspective tool. I'm still learning AD and working on my second project with it. I was needing perspective and was surprised to find there is no tool.
