So this one is a bit of a niche filter, but it is one of my favourites (it does an excellent job at breaking up hard edges, and helps bind layers together beautifully if you're going for the grainy look but don't want to introduce standard grain/noise)
Especially when photobashing for concept art, "I use it on the daily".

@Izzy Could you please explain what a reticulation filter is? What does it do? Are you asking Affinity to provide one?

Reticulation is certain kind of graininess, which is result of using wrong temperature liquid in film developing. Difference in temperature causes reticulation. The effect can display differently depending temperature error and other factors, here s one:

Thanks @Fixx. I knew what reticulation was in terms of films, but I could not relate this to what @Izzy said in the original posting.

Hey @John Rostron, @Fixx pretty much nailed the technical description.
I use it on my concept art to blend edges for certain artwork, here is a sample I used it on.
It's mixed in with a few other things I use to create this style of mine, subtly used but still important for me. Wish I had more samples but NDA means waiting for the projects I worked on to actually release (and some projects have schedules that span years of course)
So I still swap to Photoshop occasionally to use it.

I've been really eager to make a hard swap, and I've gone as far as recreating custom brushes and learning the new workflow (which I love btw, it's way more adaptable) - but I'll still swap back every now and then for 1 or 2 tools.
It is a very niche tool, so I understand it might not be a priority, but you never know unless you ask.

Could you not blend Noise and/or Perlin Noise filters together?

I'll run through it a few times and see what kinds of results I can get, thanks for the advice.
