Re: Render queue invalid

Many thanks, again, to the Nick & Indigo team, They got back to me and have made a working exporter for Keyframe Animations "tweens" files. I did discover that you need to set your frame rate and make sure you turn on object animation then export. I would post my very simple test clip but I can't di...

My limited understanding of indigo is t...

Re: Affinity Photo

Thanks Juju, I took a quick look at the website and Affinity Photo looks promising and at that price is worth checking out in the near future. After initial group composition nearly all my layout & spacing work is done in AutoCAD LT, the lack of dxf/dwg on the Affinity designer is a deal killer for ...
