Applying perspective transformation to both layer and mask

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Sorry if this has already been covered somewhere, but I was not able to find anything.

Basically I have a layer with a mask applied to it. I want to transform the layer using the perspective tool, and I want that transformation to apply to the mask as well. I can scale/rotate the layer, and the mask follows, but for the perspective tool this does not seem to work. Can this be done?

Hi Wimads,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
Use a Live Perspective Filter (menu Layer ▸ New Live Filter Layer ▸ Perspective Filter) and nest it to the pixel layer with the mask also nested to the pixel layer. See the layer structure below (to nest masks, adjustments/filters etc to a pixel layer drag them over the thumbnail of the pixel layer in the Layers panel):

Hi, thanks that works! its a shame the perspective grid will fit to the page size rather than the layer size though, but it works well enough.
