Improved inpainting features.

Recommended Posts

https://youtu.be/O9t5POPPNfg  (all those features would be very welcome, i thought i was already wished these here some year ago and now adobe make them first :()

Inpainting improvements - more advanced way to control your inpainting. Select disinpainted areas like new photoshop features (masking out unwanted selection and masking inpainting the wanted selections).


I have also some new ideas (guiding paths):   Also some guide line vector drawing to show inpainting clone path could be create to guide inpainting algorithm to show the right path. Reflection /Mirroring / Flipping (Horizontal mirroring and vertical mirroring to selected areas with pop up menu over the selection path), rotation features like in clone bursh tools (and feature to show algorithm how many degrees different areas are rotated to guide and fix the in-painting results - using pen tool kind of vector guiding tool for inpaiting).

I think clone bursh could also need some kind of guide path painting: maybe even interactive - 1 vector line is the clone path and 2 vector line is the clone area/source. 
Also some  vector fields could make cloning more natural in cases when user want to clone indirect/wrapped line and make it straight line (like deforming but with vectors - or morphing like in this video: https://youtu.be/w5yJvAttO2c?t=87 there is also some other cool features which would be nice to have: like s3d workflow to create depth maps) Also having possibility to get depth maps from focus merged images in affinity would be create additional feature, I think focus merging should be also non-destructive (like most tools should be also inpainting if possilbe).

https://gmic.eu/ also some gim'c features could be nice: https://youtu.be/2e6FikWMkaQ?list=PLxhZWW4XG2XEJqfGmGWiG7EfttWtpQvyu :)

Sorry this messy message, I hope there was good ideas to make affinity even better <3 -thank you for reading.

here is fast demonstration from vector guiding: the points indexing would be important - first point is the start and last point is ending. user must paint wanted result with correct / right order (of course some tools to make guide path reversed would be fine too for advanced operations). This way user could generate unique results with existing/current available data or use it from separated soruces like global source in clone tools, could that be added for in-painting too? )

Even better if this could be done with interactive and non-destructive vector way: always possibility to change vector path and see end result real-time but also direct rastering mode for fast drafting/editing.Inpainting  Here is one more image to demonstrate the end result with "brush size and hardness". This tool should take care form direction and rotation to warp image source when generating output / render.
Vector (for non-destructive) or path (for raster and destructive - comparing this to selection vs. masking) guiding for cloning and inpainting.

Adding more details to my explanation.

one more demonstration  for clone brush direction rotation feature (there should be also interpolation and blending/morphing between copy steps/spacing)  And I try to demonstrate that first posts result what is happening behind process: source will take care from rotation (path angles and degrees and out put direction/rotation) -

So my idea is some kind  of "clone path source" with direction and rotation detection with output  direction and rotation with interpolation rendering to generate deformed clones and abstract shapes (if user active it from tool: direction and rotation deforming/inerpolation from source  to output/target).

a little bit more detailed explanation. because i love affinity developers and i really wish affinity will be the one photo manipulation software on the market <3 Rule the world affinity! :)

 this is pretty much what i search for / suggested for affinity photo ;)  (track path before painting it or generate guides in non destructive way/version)
Somehting like this but in inpainting/clone tool form. 
Inpaiting will need also some mirror and angle features for automated prosessing or somehting that will guide automated inpaint process (some parameters) maybe something like  diffuse tensor   https://gmic.eu/tutorial/dyidiffusion.shtml
That gmic is awesome collection of filters: https://gmic.eu/gallery/stylization.shtml would love to see these integrated into Affinity, especially that style transformer.
