    AR4 bug? (artefacts after duplicating an invisible layer)

    hy there

    I've come across what I think is a bug in AR4.0.0 while duplicating a layer which is invisible and contains metallic paint:
    the duplicated layer shows a pattern of repeating bits of paint (regardless which tool I use for painting; happens with all of them except stickerspray and fill tool).
    it only happens when I use metallic paint (be it 5% or 100% metallic). it is more visible the more metallic % was used.
    canvas lightning has to be turned ON (default I guess) - with lightning off everything is fine!

    repro:
    1. open AR4 with default canvas (I also tested with "Cel", same result).
    2. set paint to any colour and any amount of metallic.
    3. paint a stroke with any of the tools available except stickerspray and fill tool.
    4. make the layer invisible.
    5. duplicate the layer.
    6. the duplicated layer will be invisible too. change it to visible.

    expected:
    the duplicated layer should look exactly like the original layer.

    observed:
    the duplicated layer shows a pattern of repeating bits of paint.
    I am able to smear the paint bits with the knife and erase, select or transform them - just as normal paint.

    I checked with AR SP 3.5.5 and this behaviour does not happen in the old version - it duplicates invisible layers without creating strange patterns.

    I am curious if someone else is able to replicate the steps with the same result (in AR4).

    (and because I love stickersprays, I made a sticker out of one of those strange layers and created a set of stickersprays from it! yeah! why not use bugs as long as they are there to create something nice?!? lol)

    That's definitely a bug! We'll look into that now, sorry for the inconvenience. I can reproduce it here too.
