Clipping masks on groups?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Is it possible to apply a clipping mask on a group of layers in Affinity photo? Essentially I would want to reproduce this approach from photoshop:

So far I am not aware of a non-destructive way of achieving this. The destructive way is to (1) duplicate the group, (2) flatten it and (3) apply the clipping layer to the flattened single layer.

 

Thanks for any hints!

From my understanding it doesnt work if you do it in one way, and it work if you do it the "other way".

i put the group in the gradient layer and i get the intended result.

(i didt not use a fill layer with a gradient here, but it work the same so it can be totally non destructive)

True, but only with a pixel layer, not with a  fill layer ....

You're right,sorry. I was a bit confused. Any idea why my layer stack doesn't look the same as yours ?
