Applying an adjustment layer to a vector object

Recommended Posts

Today I have a talk about corrective layers


Your philosophy on non-destructive editing is amazing.

And indeed it is very convenient and efficient.

I desperately need vector-colorgrading capabilities, and Affinity makes this much easier than I have ever seen it in my practice.

but I discovered for myself that in my sequence of actions it does not work as it reflects

Using a correction layer to a vector object (for example, HSL correction), I cannot export a file to a vector format (svg or eps in my case), because due to the “language barrier” of different formats, I get a rasterized image.

In short, a bundle of a correction layer and a vector object, when exporting, always turns into a raster image inside the file.

And the fun fact is that non-destructive layers begin to perform a destructive function.

At first glance, the solution to the current situation is to apply this layer on an ongoing basis. It can be said an analogue of the function "EXPAND APPEARANCE" in Adobe Illustrator.

And in fact, I discovered that there is such a function in AD, in each adjustment layer there is a MERGE button that can do what I want. And she does it with a raster object.

But this does not work with vector objects.

I have an assumption that this is a bug, or that this is just unfinished code.

Because it seems to me in reality from the point of view of development, it should not cause difficulties, right? just need to apply the updated color to the object. Perhaps, of course, I’m wrong, I’m still far from developing and writing code.

What I'm trying to say is somewhat messy, I apologize for that.

I understand that you have a Roadmap, and there are a lot of things that are much higher priority than my request, but is there even the slightest chance to get a fix for the MERGE function in the foreseeable future?


Sincerely, your friendly guest of forum
