  1. Hey Serif, stumbled upon this bug that is reproducible on different systems. Specs: Win10 - Affinity Photo If you have a CMYK/8 document and paint a mask for a layer with total black, the painted result is not totally transparent. It seems like an bug in the color conversion between GREY and CMYK. Switching the color mode from a color with 0% grey to CMYK shows that the KEY Color/Black is at 88k and not at 100k: In CMYK mode you can switch the color to 100K and then the transparenccy works as expected. But as soon as you click another layer and get back to the mask the color scheme is switched back to grey and black is not entirely transparent. To reproduce this: - Create an new image - switch to cmyk/8 - create a layer + draw something - create a mask for the layer, (Click the mask and) paint a total black with gray value 0. You can still faintly see the content you wanted to mask out.
  2. Am I doing some wrong? I have a layer with an SVG image to which I've added a mask. But when I fill the mask with black (0,0,0), the image is still faintly visible. Shouldn't it be 100% erased? Just to prove the mask is working, two images are attached, the first with 100% black mask, the second with a region of the mask painted white to expose the black drawing. I even tried putting an opaque white layer behind it all in case it was some weird transparency artifact. This is on Windows 10, Affinity V
  3. Hi, Using black on a mask should block the layer image completely—but it doesn’t. Attached Image 1 shows a two-layer drawing, one layer for the character and one for the dark background. The dark brushstrokes of the background intentionally overlap the character. A Mask is added to the background layer in order to hide the part where the brushstrokes overlap the character (Image 2). 100% black paint is used. Image 3 shows the result: the brushstrokes almost disappeared, but not quite: there remains a faint ghost of the background on the character (about 5% grey). You don’t notice it right away, but it would show at printing (dangerous!). I resolved the issue by working destructively. I loaded the mask as a selection and deleted the overlapping brushstrokes. This removed the 5% grey completely (Image 4). Now if a mask can’t fully hide the image, how is it possible that a selection, loaded from the same mask, fully deletes it? There is something wrong with the mask. Thanks, Simon
  4. I'm unable to get the layer mask to completely hide the masked artwork, and it still appears as a ghosted image. Am I doing something wrong, or is this a bug? layer-mask.mov
  5. Made a new file, CMYK, copy an image from online, paste, create a mask. The mask shows as Greyscale in the colour tab, but its not fully masking the image, like the brush isn't at 100% (it is). If I change the colour tab to show CMYK, make them all 100%, it masks fine. 1. Am I doing something wrong? 2. Can I have the mask auto to CMYK?
