Hi! I'm here for the first time! :13_upside_down: 

I admire the work on the program and keep my fingers crossed for further development :18_kissing_heart:


I would like to ask if there is an option in the program or any plugin that would allow me to make a "jitter" effect? Something like shaking in animation. Currently, I draw two pictures and then place them in a video editing program next to each other to get that effect. However, the process of drawing twice the same image is time-consuming. If there was a possibility of moving lines/making jittery/wiggly in in the finished picture, it would speed up my work at least twice :11_blush: 

#1 Edit:

Oh,I am using Windows 10

It's more or less the effect I'd like to get:

Hi Morguliusz,

You could the same type of effect using the Displace filter.  You'd just need a picture of 'clouds' to use as the map and you can get the effect shown in the attached screenshot from Affinity Photo.  For more information see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NylLqhPu5jk

Thanks for the answer. :12_slight_smile:

An interesting idea with clouds and the Displace option, but it does not give a good result. At least that's my opinion.
I used a few pics of clouds that I found on the internet in high resolution. Those where there are several clouds and where the whole sky is covered. As the effect was poor, I decided to make the clouds myself thanks to the Perlin Noise in Affinity Photo (Filters / Noise / Perlin Noise) option, something like Render > Clouds in Photoshop. 

Well, the quality is definitely better, but the main problem is that this option makes the image or text jaggy/ragged not jittery/wiggly. I do not know if it's a matter of the "Pixel" layer and because of that it's loses on quality, and if it would be on the vector image it would work ...

#1 Edit

Of course, I used a small effect of "Displace" (like 20-30 was max because of noise / jaggy)

#2 Edit

I checked if I can draw something in Affinity Designer in a vector (by the way, can I connect them somehow? I wrote two words and I had lots of layers that I could not combine into one.) I moved work back to Affinity Photo, but unfortunately the option "Displace "requires a raster layer ...

Can you explain a little about the distinction between the two?

I'd say, jittery or wiggly is a smooth edged line that isn't straight and  jaggy/ragged is a distorted edge line with a broken up edge.

This effect reminds me of an animation from a while ago called Rhubarb & Custard, pretty much everything had this moving line effect.

That’s what I immediately thought of when I read the OP’s description of drawing the ‘same’ image twice. :)

Exactly like @firstdefence said.

 A roughen path tool has been discussed before, indeed it sounds like one is / was in development at some point…

So, two years ago there was an idea, but it was apparently abandoned... Pity...

Maybe not abandoned, just postponed while they finish up 'overhauling the internals' of some of the main tools, as mentioned in the first "Sneak peak for 1.7" post? But that is just a guess so I would not count on it.
