Non destructive Mesh Warp Tool

Recommended Posts

This feature, yes!

With the recently vastly improved support for Photoshop smart objects, this is the last piece of what's needed for a lot of my workflow - non-destructive mesh warps. The attached .jpeg shows the difference between what photoshop allows me to do in mocking up a label application on a round object (slight curves to follow shape of object) vs what imports into Affinity photo (stretched, flat shape with no curvature distortion unless I first rasterize it).

Yes, please!

Same goes for the Perspective Tool - or any other tool that transforms, bends, warps, whatever, a bitmap layer.

I was (negatively) surprised recently when I learned that the Perspective Tool is destructive. That does not fit well in the picture, so to speak.

Thanks!

@Adam_D, you may be interested in this macro I wrote for wrapping a label around a mug or bottle.

Thanks, John! That is certainly useful to have in my toolkit! 

The request for non-destructive mesh warps is still high on my wishlist - there are so many more instances than could be covered by this (or similar) macros that I still turn to Photoshop to accomplish and the more that I can accomplish in Affinity Photo, the happier I am ☺️
