    A possible layer bug?

    I noticed this a few weeks back but have gotten in the habit of compensating for it and almost forgot to mention it. I noticed that when I painted with the oil brush on a layer up a ways in a stack of layers and using the same color as a layer toward the bottom of the stack, the edges of the strokes display squared outlines until I turn all the paper colors black. See example.

    Yup - well-spotted. That is definitely a bug.
    Those responsible have been soundly chastised. It'll be fixed in the next service release, which is due in a few weeks. I know it'll be fixed, because I tracked it down and fixed it this afternoon, after chastising myself.

    You probably dont want to know that it was a 1 bit interpolation inaccuracy in the gamma-corrected layer-blending code. So Ive increased the interpolation values from 8 bits to 16 bits.

    I wish they were all that easy to solve!

    Sorry to hijack your thread, fashmir. I hope you can forgive me.

    Sounds great Andy. Are you gonna spoil the wait of the next service release with some premature information of what to expect?

    (yes, I'm dying to know if there will be an update to the palette tool)

    I hate making commitments, because then I feel obliged to keep to them. I can't say what will be in the patch, sorry.
