AuthorSubject: PS Brush Behavior Layer Mask   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Paul Kramarchyk
Posted on Thu Jan 29, 2004 4:57 AM

Need a plain English explanation of brush behavior during layer mask hide/reveal operations. Suppose I create a layer, tweak it, then create layer mask and hide all.

Now I use a brush to *control* the degree to which the masked/hidden layer is exposed.
My definition for purpose of this Q:
“One Application” = left click mouse down > paint > release mouse

The following terms need clear, comprehensible, working definitions:
Opacity = 30%
1) Does that mean regardlesss of the number of applications the maximum opacity achieved is 30%? In other words, it’s a limit, such that, no matter what you do with the mouse (click/release, click/release, click/release), the Opacity will never exceed 30%.
2) Or, does it mean EACH application INCREASES the Opacity by 30% until 100% is achieved. At which point, more applications do nothing?

Flow = 50%
Does “Flow” control THE RATE AT WHICH the set Opacity is reached? In other words, if I click and hold the mouse down forever, the Opacity will eventually reach 30% and no more. Therefore:
1) If Flow = 100%, then, the set Opacity is reached in one click/release mouse cycle... true?
2) And, if Flow = 50%, then, the set Opacity is reached at some arbitrary exposure rate which is twice as fast than if Flow were set to 25%.

thanks...
