Puppet warp

Recommended Posts

Will or does Affinity have a feature like the Photoshop Puppet Warp. If this is already possible in Affinity, can someone kindly explain where I can find it?

 

Thanks,

My same question.  I can add nodes to a mesh but that mesh is applying to a rectangle containing the selected image not the selected image (say of a person) itself.  In fact I am not seeing a way to see a cut out person (for example) to be selected other than as a bounding box.  

 

If Puppet Warp is hidden I'd love to know where.  If not  then if Puppet Warp can be added that would be very significant.

 

Otherwise, I'm  loving this application so far!

Hi @ppr, @Digitalclips,

Welcome to Affinity Forums.

No, there isn't a Puppet Warp tool in Affinity Photo.

 

@Digitalclips,

The Mesh Warp Tool present in Affinity Photo is a general mesh distortion tool. It wasn't intended to be used for specific images areas.

I'm moving this thread to the feature requests section as nobody have requested this before.

@Dazmondo77 - in what ways is Deform lacking compared to PS puppet warp?

With PS puppet warp you can take a cutout character and place nodes on the joints to produce a skeleton and bend or reposition limbs without too much distortion effecting the rest of the image, you can even place say a leg behind another leg or rotate a limb around the axis a node - obviously if you go a bit extreme it's gonna look like a dogs dinner  - Deform is really basic and can work for simple tweaks and great for doing distortions but theres no background wireframe to isolate the movement of a limb, if you move a leg the the left it will also distort the other leg
