Shapes and Rasterization

When a group becomes rasterized, all layers within that group—including masks, shapes, and paint strokes—are affected and may no longer interact with other layers and groups as expected.

Because paint strokes are rendered in a plane, they are always rasterized (independent of other objects within the same group). This affects how the dabs that comprise a paint stroke interact with objects in the same group.

Note: Because a paint stroke is always rasterized, no rasterization indicator appears around the paint stroke icon.
