Masking in Stacked images – Flow & Hardness question

Recommended Posts


I have a stacked image and want to mask in parts of some layers in order to do some manual focus stacking. (It is NOT an automatic focus-stack.)

When I try to mask in or out with flow and/or hardness, the edges of the brush itself are soft but in the image it is a hard edge. It is the same for every blend mode (e.g. average, median, maximum etc.).

In the screenshot below you can see the brush set to hardness 45% but in the image it has a hard edge. Same for the rest of the soft-edged mask.

Is this expected behaviour or is this a bug?

Hi user_0815 :)

This has been brought to our dev teams attention recently and we're currently awaiting a response as to if this is expected behavior. I personally suspect that the issue will be related to the maths at work in the background for the live stack, but this is only speculation. I'll update the thread as soon as I hear from the devs!
