Preview for Radial and Zoom Blur like in Affinity Photo

Please update Radial and Zoom Blur like it is in Affinity Photo - or at least with a Preview. Many 1000 thanks in advance.

Come on Adobe get your act together, this feature has been needed for years!!! The Radial blur us just too cumbersome as it currently is.

Having a real preview for radial and zoom blur would be handy.
I suggest to apply the blur on a duplicate layer and to play with opacity. You can even play with blend modes and adding a layer is necessary anyway for masking.

Yeah, it's not about masking and blending. It's for setting CENTRE of blur accurate and efficient, without needing 100's of attempts or so, until you hit to point you want to be the centre accidentally. Adobe should check how easy it is to apply zoom blur in Affinity Photo. It should be at least possible to set the centre like it can be done for lens flare - also this is totally  inconvenient compared to Affinity Photo, but anyway better as current Radial/Zoom blur of Photoshop where it is a try-and-error method :(

I guess the next best thing is to use those filters without previews like Radial Blur as a Smart Filter, so at least it's easier to change than just running it, having to undo, run it again, etc.

I can set the center accurately enough.
Tip: set your grid to show four divisions, like in the preview.
(grid line every 25%)
Click on the desired center in the grid view, hold and move that point to the center.

JEA,

Could you comment on how you would do that in Elements?

Why don ́t you use Photoshop ́s blur-gallery? It has a radial blur with real time preview. Zoom blur can be simulated with a couple of path blurs in blur-gallery.

Oops, I did not realize, that I made this accidentally in the Photoshop Elements section. Mea culpa. It should belong to the big Photoshop. Can I move it myself or must I ask someone?
