[By Design] [AP] Effect is lost

Recommended Posts



when I make a shape with effects these are lost if I click on the filter distort/waves.


See, what I mean:






When I applied the effect I could'nt more make a gradient in the heart.

Hi Marty,


This is because the Heart gets rasterised when you apply your effect, as you can see in your 2nd screenshot the layers name has changed to pixel.

In addition to what Callum has said if you right click the Heart shape in the Layers panel and select 'Rasterise' you should then be able to apply the Distort/Waves without loosing the effect - however once you've selected Rasterise you will no longer be able to adjust any of the FX settings.
