Is the an expected result from refine selection?

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if this is the expected result from Refine selection.  I've included a video, but I'm wondering if this isn't a bug?

Process:

Selection Tool --> Refine --> Paint with Matte brush (Matte edges selected) --> Output --> New Layer with Mask --> Hide the mask.  

The new layer seems to have been destroyed (old layer is not touched, as expected)  I would think that after going through the process, I would be able to touch up the mask, but the new layer is so ruined, that I can't use any of the area that I would unmask.  I am able to move the mask to the old layer and touch it up there, be the new layer isn't good.

Thanks!

Have you tried using a smaller brush, to catch the fly-away hair

no matter the brush size, it seems like a bug.  There shouldn't be any distortion to the new layer. I'll do it the long way until there is a fix.  Thanks!

I experience the same thing, which is very annoying!

Only really used Refine in the most recent version so can't say when this bug appeared.

Hi koskow,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
Yes, this is a known behaviour/bug (logged already). One thing you can try is set the output to Mask then duplicate the original layer manually and apply the mask to the duplicate (to get the same result as New layer with mask, if you want to keep the original untouched).
