Perhaps not a bug, but still something that breaks the non-destructive workflow:
When I create a virtual layer from a layer with a effect applied to it, like motion blur, the virtual layer, when rotated, changes its appearance completely - I would expect the virtual layer to remain identical looking to the original, but it seems the layer effect is not locked in visual appearance.
It would be extremely helpful if we could rotate, skew, etc. the virtual layer without breaking the visual appearance.
I mean, sometimes the current behaviour is actually really helpful, for example when working with a clouds live effect that recalculates in a virtual layer. But sometimes we want that effect to be fixed, and it should not be recalculated.
The solution I propose it to add an option to "FIX" the effect in the virtual layer, and it remains visually identical to the original. That way Photoline will provide a choice to either recalculate the adjustment layer effects, or to keep the exact visual appearance.
This would be a great workflow enhancer!
I prepared a quick panel mockup for the virtual layer properties:
