Clipping vs. Nesting ~ Lynn
« on: December 05, 2017, 03:47:50 pm »
The most recent AD Beta, 1.6.3.96, which was posted to the Affinity Forum yesterday, lists among the Fixes the following:

Changed Layers panel to add more distinction between clipped and nested layers

This surprised me, as I thought clipping and nesting were the same thing. If anyone has downloaded the Beta and can see what they are talking about, please enlighten me!

mmmm that sounded interesting so I downloaded the beta

how I read that was they were going to make a bigger difference to nested and or clipped layer against a normal layer without clip or nesting applied

nesting is clipping as far as I am aware.

anyway I opened both the AD's and  repeated the same sample and looked at the layers I see NO difference  in clipped nested or normal layer

the beta is the left. I also  tried it in the dark UI  but had the same results no difference between the two.

They sure look identical to me.

I'm absolutely not going to worry about it!

My goodness what is going on with Serif announcing changes and updates when it is hard to see any differences they've made. I just don't get it and think they are having a laugh! lol  :xmas03: :xmas74: :xmas51:

But, Shez, does this sound something like we had in AP lately...merging down and not clipping/nesting?

I think the correct term in AP & AD is Nesting but it is the same method as Clipping which is the term used in Photoshop, PSP (If I recall correctly) and some other programmes Grethe.

I don't think merging down is the same thing as nesting or clipping.   I think they are trying to include Photoshop terminology to attract those users.  Lynn, maybe you could ask them to be more specific about that one point?

I'm not participating in the Beta. I just looked at the Fixes listed in the latest one.

There is an obtion called mask to below in both apps and I think it behave different than clipping/nesting. Not sure what the different are yet. I've have them and I don't use beta version.
