[Solved] Pixelated brush tool with 9px or 20px width produces "semi-transparent colors" along with non-transparent colors

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I'm new here and glad to meet you guys! c:

I have joined this forum for this (possible) glitch and I personally get provoked by it since I love to draw pixelated arts with Paint.NET!

 

About the glitch itself, it strangely produces semi-transparent colors for "pixelated brush tool" with 9px or 20px brush width exactly. Despite of I NEVER turned on any anti-aliasing options.

 

I have tested with other brush width (i.e. 1px...2px...3px..up to 31px I think!) and looks like there's no problem with this but said two width options. Please see screenshots for more information:

I'm not sure this thread is allowed in here since it does not related to any crash issue but just brush tool glitch.
Finally, thanks for read this!

It's been solved since the v4.0.17.

Hardness won't affect an aliased brush stroke.

 

I'll look into this, hopefully this weekend.

 

What's the actual color value of those pixels? If you use the color picker tool, I mean

 

Also, you can try using the Overwrite blend mode (click on "Normal" with the beaker icon, to the right of where you choose Aliased)

If you meant the color I used with the brush tool, it was #1F87DD with 255 Alpha level. And the Alpha level of semi-transparent pixels made by 9px or 20px brush can be varied just like anti-aliased brushes usually do, plus the color value itself is same with the original. Also, no matter which color I picked.

Still same with no blending mode :c59036e8765118_semitransparenttest3.png.dae434bb1c37de168010eca53bc43a0f.png

Ah, I was forgot to mention about eraser:

20 9.pdn

This also occurs at eraser too, and it creates transparent(0 alpha lv) #000000 pixels like semi-transparent pixels when the eraser met transparent #FFFFFF pixels.

it also creates > it creates (Just a few edit)
