[AD] bug: same RGB/Opacity, different colors!

Recommended Posts

This is really strange:

I have two shapes, both of them 25% color opacity (not layer opacity)

both of them are black (0,0,0) but they appear different, and have different color-picker values!

No effect, no difference in blending mode... Pure weirdness;

Unless I'm missing something?

The white rectangle on the back, is pure white...






Discovery: If I disable the white background rectange (on transparency) they appear the same! As soon as I add a colored shape underneath they exhibit a difference!


I've attached the .afdesign file

You have different "Blend Gamma" settings for the two shapes


Change the "Blend Gamma" on the rectangle to 2.2 then they will appear the same.


"Blend Gamma" is accessible via the "Cog" icon on the layers panel

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be concerned about.

@carl123, wow, you are so right! Didn't even know this existed!

Not sure how the gamma changed though; probably it wasn't my doing but then again I can't say with absolute certainty!


also thank you @MEB!
