Outer Glow Treating Erased Pixels as Painted Pixels- Designer

Recommended Posts

Hey There,

I have some text that I've rasterized and erased bits of in pixel mode to make it look like neon tubing. When I then apply the Outer Glow effect, however, the effect doesn't seem to recognize the erased area, but treats it like I "painted" over the text with the background color (in this case, black); the glow doesn't touch the erased edges.

 

Below is the process I've followed to get here; I'll note that it's what I used to do in Adobe without issue, so perhaps it's a workflow thing, and not a bug. ...and yes, I know the erasure is sloppy- just testing it out at this point ;) 

 

1) Add text

2) Rasterize text layer

3) In Pixel Persona, erase text bits, as needed

4) Apply Outer Glow effect to text

 

I've attached some screenshots of the before/after effect.

Alternatively, at least a screenshot of the layers panel (is it really erase pixels, not mask?). Otherwise there is no problem.
