Changing the Transparency removes brush
When I have several lines applied with a Pattern Brush and change the transparency of those lines to 50%, everything is fine. As soon as I return to 100% opacity, the Pattern Brush is completely removed and I have to reapply it.
Thanks for the links.
The bug is reproducible for me 1/20 times on a Mac, sometimes thrice in a row, sometimes like a twelve blank shots. It does not really matter how I select a field — the way Von does it, with a precise swipe, or clicking a caption. It always happens when a entered number is two-digit, and the bug happens when a second digit is entered. The brush stays applied, and the stroke does not get dropped, it’s only the rendered appearance gets bugged out. It does not matter if the brush is an artistic or the pattern one.
But while at Mac it happened like after 5 tries, this still does not happen on Windows for me — I can verify this after like 15 more minutes on different ways to trigger it... making a lot of brush strokes does not help. It is strange that Jason was able to catch it.
I notified the team about this.
Von Glitschka has this exact problem in his movie on custom brushes, uploaded 6/15/23.
First occurrence starts here https://youtu.be/4cKlzpiUySQ?t=815
It happens multiple times, going from <100% back to 100%
Another occurrence happens at https://youtu.be/4cKlzpiUySQ?t=908
This time it is going from 100% to <100%
He is using Mac, so maybe don't limit your testing to just one platform. :/
One more example from the same movie: https://youtu.be/4cKlzpiUySQ?t=975
Goes through 19:55 (as he also mentions another bug with gaussian blur you need to look into). He noticed that for this bug it seemed to possibly have something to do with how an object was selected.
Jason, does not happen to me on Windows with 27.5, no matter what I try. There must me something else to it.
How exactly do you change the opacity for the lines? On a stroke or an object level? Perhaps some specific brushes? Can you share a test file and a short video?
