Apply inherited alpha... how?

Mon Nov 18, 2013 1:07 pm
Can it be done?

how i do it... duplicate the base layer, lock the duplicate'sits alpha, fill it with white, convert it to transparency mask , drag it into the layer which needs the inherited alpha applied and then flatten the layer

is there a simpler way to do this? thankyou

Hi,
I'm used too play with "inherited alpha" within a layer group to ease this. ex :

Two methods exist to transform it to a paint layer :
1. You can right-click the group on layer docker and : convert > paint layer ( on recent Krita )
2. You can also merge it down (Ctrl+E) over a new empty paint layer.

Hi... but that gives me one single layer...

i should have asked with a picture... :)

I still want two layers but with the top layer's alpha getting multiplied with the bottom layer's alpha

At first I assumed apply inherited alpha would be there as a feature... it'd be real handy


and I also tried selecting opaque from the bottom layer and then deleting the outer area on the top layer... but it gave a bad result on the soft edges :(
