Masks do not work! URGENT - HIGHEST PRIORITY

Sometimes it's easier to provide a sample file to help understand, when screenshots don't help. We're not pro or anti, we just want to help, and it's not always easy :)


I made a test file. I opened it in version 1.7.1 and 1.7.2 and as you can see, the result is different. I share a link to the file. Is this a bug? Is it the new way of interpreting masks?

I am also experiencing this bug since updating from 1.7.1 to 1.7.2

For the configuration in my screenshot;

Old (1.7.1):

Lens filter and Exposure adjustments are applied to all layers below the group where the mask is white

New (1.7.2):

Black section of the mask clips all layers below the group. Lens Filter and Exposure adjustments are still applied to the remainder of the image

Can confirm, this happens even when there are no adjustment layers present, mask is behaving like a general mask.

Also, if you create some adjustment layers, then group them, then mask the group, then create some positive zones in the mask; you will get the behaviour mentioned above. But if you create a pixel layer (even an empty one) and put it at the bottom of the adjustments group; the adjustments will stop working. Here is a video demonstrating it.

Just checked 1.7.2 update on MacOS - this bug also here... :( 

Looks like (for me) latest fixes for rendering filters inside groups was overdone in some directions... And crushed old behaviour. But proper rendering of filters inside groups very important thing too, so hoping both functionalities - masks on groups without pixel data and proper rendering of grouped filters - will be preserved.

Anyway, i can imagine inner complexity of AP... Definitely not an easy task to keep all working at the same time. But that`s what make AP so useful.
Keep up good work! will wait for fixed beta for now :)

It's fixed in the Windows 1.7.3 beta - released this week

But the 1.7.3 MAC beta has not been released as yet

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now was our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

Hello, so? there is any fix about this? 😪

From the information above it was fixed in 1.7.3.

If you're having a problem you should probably post a new topic and describe your problem in detail.
