Hi! I’m evaluating Affinity Designer as a replacement for Adobe Illustrator and I’m very impressed. However, my main tool would be the vector brush and I’m a bit disappointed with it.

I find that Affinity’s vector brush re-interprets my strokes too much. I draw a curve and the resulting stroke gets transformed: it ends up being a bit too flat or a bit too curvy, a bit off. Is there a way to control the brush tool tolerance? 

In Adobe Illustrator, I can control brush fidelity and smoothness (see screenshot). I would say Affinity Designer’s tool would compare to Illustrator’s brush options set at 5 pixels / 5 %. I prefer setting it at 1 pixel / 1% for higher fidelity. Can something like this be done?

(Please note that this doesn’t apply to the pixel brush (Pixel Persona), which follows my strokes precisely.)

Hi Simon bd,

 

Welcome to the forums :)

 

At the moment this isn't possible in Affinity however this issue has been raised in the past and its something we would like to add in the future!
