Blend Ranges: Adjusting Source Layer Range

Recommended Posts

  • Staff

Hi Haffinity,

I don't seem to get this behaviour here when I try this, if you go into the apps preferences under performance do you have Metal Compute acceleration enabled? If you do does toggling this off improve the performance of the blend range panel at all?

Hi Callum,

I have found that I need to restart AP to reproduce the effect. I am testing with an 8MP jpeg. 

When I turn off the metal acceleration, the effect does not occur. When I turn metal acceleration back on, the effect is there again.

The spinning beach ball seems to only ever appear the first time after restarting AP with acceleration enabled. After that I can use the blend options in other layers or files without any delay.

Do you recommend turning off acceleration permanently or is that a bug in AP?
