Clone stamp - paint on transparent

Apr 11, 2012 1:13 PM

Can anyone explain why my layer disappears when I click "paint on transparent" when using the clone tool? It doesn't happen when using the normal paint tool, only with the clone tool. Sometimes I can get it to work if I duplicate the layer, click the box, then turn off the original layer. But sometimes when I duplicate the layer it messes up all my clones.

    Check the duration setting for the brush strokes. This behavior occurs, if the Alpah is not constant throughout the duration and/or stroke duration is set to anything other than "current frame".

    As I said, this behavior is typical if the layer already has an Alpha channel and it changes over time, i.e. it is a clip or image sequence with Alpha. Other than double-check the brush and paint settings. Also make sure you do not use otehr masks and effects on the layer that may be selected in the layer display box in the right bottom corner...
