Where is this invisible mask thing coming from?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone see anything from this picture? I'm painting on a pixel layer, using the default brush, no selection, no mask (on that layer), yet there's clearly something blocking the brush in some areas...

I can't share the file because I bought it from a stock photo site, and I'm just using the mouse for now because I wanted to do a quick job.

(There's zero chance to convince any coworkers to try Affinity when things like this happens 2 min into working in a file. I have a new machine but I guess I'm installing Photoshop on this one too... sigh!)

Ok... a clue... it's the blending options of the default airbrush perhaps?

I have to create my own brushes in order to get something useful out of Affinity?

Ok, so turns out that Affinity's hardware acceleration is incompatible with Quadro cards:

And btw, I'm using an Nvidia driver approved for Siemens NX, provided by HP, so don't even try to give me shit about that. ;)

Pretty basic question (but it's a bit difficult to tell exactly what you're doing from your screen shot) is "Protect Alpha" unticked?

Had to do an internet search to find it, but no, that was not checked.

However, the issue went away again... but we'll see for how long.

(I'm still reinstalling Photoshop in the background, though.)
