Using fx on Layers in iPad

Recommended Posts

Need some advice...help....

I have an image consisting of a number of layers. I wish to use “outer glow effect” on one of the layers. I select that layer and go to fx studio. There I can switch on “outer glow”, and reduce opacity, but I don’t have any controls over the bottom of the page, that i need to adjust aspects of the glow...nothing there. This is the same for all listed effects.

I have seen videos where outer shadow has been used...and there are controls across the bottom of the screen governing depth, transparency etc.....i just cant get them. There are no tutorials for iPad that i can find on using effects. Have I missed something here? I have reloaded the images and restarted Affinity a number of times...the fx controls don’t appear.

Have I missed something? I could easily manipulate fx on the same image on my MacBook to produce the desired effect...using the controls available. I just cant seem to get them on the iPad.

Any suggestions?

Ik heb hier ook een vraag over.

kan ik de fx laag ook loskoppelen?

ik heb het geprobeerd door in het menu opslaan fx te gebruiken, maar dan wordt alles gekopieerd en niet alleen de schaduw.

ik wil dat graag gebruiken om een schaduw achter mijn onderwerp aan te brengen en die dan aan te passen en te verplaatsen
