Displaying fragments when using masks

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!


When working with masks, there will be fragments sometimes that make it difficult to see what's going on.

It happened on several occasions other than the one I was able to reproduce reliably.


Here is a step by step instruction on how you should be able to reproduce this:

1. Open Affinity Photo 1.5.2

2. Create 3 layers: Layer 1 using some image, Layer 2 using some image, Layer 3 using a mask (white on alpha ground)

3. Group Layer 2 (image) and Layer 3 (mask)

4. Select the mask layer

5. Set Blend mode to Linear Light

6. Layer -> Rasterise To Mask

7. Undo (cmd + Z)

8. Now, there should be crazy things going on when hovering the cursor over the image.


Best wishes,
