And how would ppl receive a feature like the new Ai freedom gradient tool?

I'm saddened that non primitive gradients are not a thing in Designer. While I have purchased all three of the Affinity suite, it will not feel like home till I can do some form of mesh or freeform gradient.

+1 For this feature, I had someone send me an AI for a job and I can't see the background, found it it's a gradient mesh. 

I really thought that Affinity was going to be a replacement for Adobe, but using after my Adobe licence ran out, I'm disappointed to see so many features missing. For this I'm unable to use it in a professional workplace. I hope Affinity get's there, but it isn't there yet. Time to renew my Adobe licence.

This would be nice like Freehand MX had. Countour gradients where the colors follow the shape of the object.

When Affinity does implement these type of gradients I hope they make them work correctly with printing..lol
Illustrators gradients mesh and new freeform gradients have huge color shift issues when switching color modes.

Contour option is easy to do now with the new Offset tool + FX blur.

 

I didn't know the AI free form gradient (I still use AI CS4…) and I confess it's great ! Sometimes I've used the mesh tool but only for basic things, never convinced by this tool.

+1 for this.

Agree with the previous that the Freeform version of this feature looks easier, but the Illustrator Mesh tool is probably more compatible with other formats. I'd imagine either would be difficult to implement for the most compatibility, especially if it had to be converted to pixels, detail could be lost (especially with large-format reproduction.)
