Hello,

 

In AP, is it possible to script an “action” like new layer creation or loading a 3d lut to a new layer?

 

Photoshop allows this and can be used as a way to integrate with other applications. 

 

If this allowed, is there any documentation on this?

 

Regards,

Frank

Hi Frank,

No, currently there's no scripting in Affinity Photo, only macros which should allow you to automatise some processes.

Check those video tutorials to learn a bit more about their capabilities:

I recently downloaded some Affinity macros (Dave's Zone system) which include a pop-up control panel for several of the macros. I can record simple macros using standard menu commands but I can find no way to create panels etc. How did the macro author achieve this? I'd like to add that to a couple of my own macros, rather than having 6 nearly identical versions of the same macro just using different values.

From the Help:

7. (Optional) To retrospectively change parameters on a particular operation, click the Settings icon next to the operation. This is useful for fine tuning your macros, or quickly creating variations (e.g., Moderate, Standard, Extreme, etc).

8. (Optional) Within the Settings dialog for a recorded action, enable the Eye icon to expose the parameter to the user (making it interactive) when the macro is run.

Step 8 is what you want, I think.
