PS 25 - Dynamic filter's mask won't scale when smart object is resized

Hi,

for a while now (probably since dynamic filter were introduced), this issue has been bothering me, dynamic filters mask only follow the position and not the resize, they are not linked like a classic fusion mask :

 

- Create a Smart Object and apply a filter to it (ex gaussian blurr).

- On the dynamic filter's mask (not the Smart Object fusion mask), paint some black area to hide the blurr effect on the SO (Smart Object).

- duplicate the SO and resize it (larger or smaller, doesn't matter).

 

If you look at the dynamic layer mask (you can hold alt and click on the mask to toggle the mask display); you can see the mask has not been resized. I don't understand why there is this limitation when you can resize a SO with a classic mask and the mask will resize accordingly with the SO (or unlink the mask if you want to).

Regards,

Yes this has been a long standing issue - there is a feature request but I can't find it at present.

 

As a workaround you can transform the mask first then click on the SO and use Edit >Transform >Again . Note- it must be mask first - It does not work the other way round.

I found the thread where you posted the link in 2019, Dave, but clicking it goes to the beginning Community Page, so it didn't port over when we moved to Khoros.

 

I can't post your link, because the forum cuts them off and I can't see all of it, but it's in the third post in this thread:

https://community.adobe.com/t5/photoshop-ecosystem-discussions/ps-25-dynamic-filter-s-mask-won-t-sca...

 

 

As you know, Feature requests and Bug reports were in UserVoice back then:

I just did a search for "Smart Object transformations do not apply to smart filter masks" and think I've found it.

 

It's a Bug report from 2018:
