Beta 1.7.0.231 Live Filter "Add Noise" not merged down

Recommended Posts

Just a quick bug report: The noise added by the Live Filter "Add Noise" disappears again if merged down to a new layer. Can be reproduced with any image.

I don't see that in a quick test. I think you should supply a sample image (ideally a .afphoto file) with the filter unmerged, and a screenshot before/after merge).

Also, don't forget to view your image at 100% zoom when you apply/adjust the filter. Other zoom levels may give inaccurate viewing results.

Hm, are you sure you used the Live Filter and not the conventional filter for your tests? Because I am solely talking about the Live Filter version of "Add Noise". And attaching a file would be pretty useless in my opinion as it happens with all files, no matter if I use a Affinity Photo file, a tiff or a jpg file. I could of course add a screen shot if my description is not self explanatory but only later as I am currently not at home. And just to make sure: I am talking about merging everything down to a new layer without losing the layers beneath. I am not talking about merging everything to a single layer (and thus losing the layers beneath). I am quite surprised that there seems to be a problem to reproduce this as like I said on my machine (Windows 10 Pro, 64 bit) it happens every time I use the "Add Noise" Live Filter and try to merge the result down to a new layer. What's more it cannot be a preview issue as the noise is also missing from the exported file after having merged everything to a new layer.

Yes, I used a live filter.

Perhaps in not understanding how you're merging down to a new layer. That's part of why a screenshot showing your layers before and after would help.

Also, you did not mention whether you're viewing at 100% when you use the filter. Not using 100% zoom when applying effects is known to cause issues.

It cannot be a preview issue as the noise is also not present in the exported file like I wrote in my post from an hour ago. I will provide a screen shot later.

I've also tried to replicate this, but the Live-Filter "add noise" work properly before and after merging. Maybe a screenshot or short video will show your issue.
