Ps CS6 Problem: Transform applied to Smart Object fails to transform an attached Smart Filters Mask

Aug 9, 2012 4:25 PM

Ps CS6

OSX 10.6.8

 

Problem: Transform applied to Smart Object fails to transform an attached Smart Filters Mask.

 

I mean a Transform, including Free Transform, as found in the Edit menu.  A simple move by the Move Tool is OK.

 

----

 

 

A workaround until this bug is squashed is to encapsulate the Smart Object + Smart Filters + Filter Mask inside another Smart Object and transform that.

 

However, that will not be a satisfactory solution in some cases. If a filter has size parameter(s), e.g. Gaussian Blur radius, a scaling or warping/distorting transform applied after the filter will obviously differ from the filter applied after the transform.

 

In any case, the workaround is inconvenient to subsequent editing and experimenting with filters and masks.

    I don't think that's a bug since the implementation seems to be purposely done.

    It's been that way since photoshop cs3.

     

    However, it sure would be nice if the smart filter masks acted in the same way as standard layer masks.
