Author Topic: Problem with brush hardness when painting on a mask  (Read 1511 times)

Not sure if this has been bugged before, but found this a bit annoying when trying to paint on my masks...

Using the Basic Hard brush with hardness to 1, Flow 100 and Stroke Opacity 100, the brush still doesn't look fully sharp when painting on a Fill layer mask or Folder mask... It looks like the hardness is set to .98 or something.

Tried on a normal paint layer, again with the hardness set to 1, and the brush seems to be working fine! So only seen this happen on masks...

Have attached a quick screenshot of what I'm seeing (this is on latest version)


If your issue is with the height channel, then this is the expected behavior.
The height to normal conversion works by reading multiple pixels and computing the average information into a vector for the normal map. Therefor you can't have a sharp transition when painting height information. You need to paint directly normal information instead.
Don't forget your log file. It can be exported from the Help menu of the software.
