Hi,
Paint Brush Tool does not respond correctly anymore after using Mesh Warp Tool.

Steps to reproduce :
- Paint something on pixel Layer
- Use Mesh warp tool to deform it
- Go back to Paint Brush Tool, and try to draw anywhere on a layer.
You'll start to draw something only on certain areas, randomly.

I'm using AF 1.7.3 on Windows 10

I followed your Steps to reproduce this Behavior, but i can´t reproduce it. On my System (Win 10 Home Version 1909, Build 18363.535) it works how expected.
Is it possible for you to post a screenvideo what shows this Behavior?


Have a nice day.
Ich wünsche einen schönen Tag.

A video wouldn't be bad. You may have activated the option "Protect transparency" in the context bar.


My Specs:
- Processor: AMD Phenom™ II X4 955 Processor 3.20 GHz- RAM: 8 GB
- Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250
- Monitor: SyncMaster F2380 (resolution 1920x1080)

Thanks for your answers!
I didn't manage to reproduce what I had, but we can still see some delay between click and start drawing. It's seems like delay in pen pressure detection.

It's a Wacom Intuos 3.
If I restart AF; no more problem; the first two strokes in the video are OK.


Could it be memory related, or GPU related ? 
My specs are 16Go Ram, NVidia GTX970

I still can't reproduce it with a tablet.

Your specs are fine, I think. Is your GTX 970 selected in the Preferences > Performance section or are you using WARP?

I assume the issue isn't present if you don't use a Mesh Warp?

Yes Renderer in performance is GTX 970.

On my current work, 4000 * 2500 px, with lot of layers, I have the same issue : big delay, especially visible on fast strokes, as AF starts drawing way after it should.

Do you have Windows Ink enabled or disabled? If you're using the retail build, disable Windows Ink and see if that's better. If you want to try the beta, enable Windows Ink and try that as there have been some improvements.

I'm using the retail version : 1.7.3
Disabling or enabling Windows Ink does not change anything.

Trying 1.8.0 Beta : no problem regarding strokes delays, but pressure sensitivity didn't work at first launch. 

After restart, sensitivity works, and strokes are perfectly smooth. But I cannot change my brush size anymore with alt+ left+right click.
Did you change the shortcut ?

Thank you for your help Chris !

No, that should definitely be working :o Are you using the standard keyboard to do this? Or have you mapped keys to your tablet?

Yes, I use standard keyboard to do this. It's related to wacom Use Windows Ink option in Wacom properties :
When it's off, I don't have pressure sensitivity, but I can change the brush size with alt+left+right click.
When it's on, pressure sensitivity is enabled in AF, but I cannot change brush size anymore.
