Randell Acuram (Ranakade) added a comment to T66818: Overlayed Shadows darken stacked areas.

I know what you mean, and in this case you would be right, but the problem is the old mode was wrong... any artist expect that if you draw two times on the same place with a semitransparent color, the color will get darker that only one stroke. If draw three times, more darker and so on.
Anyway, we have planned to do a redesign of the blend modes in 2.81 (T66293), so I'm going to take a note to review if it's possible to have this "no-overlap" as an option and make easy this type of shadows.
Thanks for your report, but as this is not a bug, I'm going to archive it.

@Antonio Vazquez (antoniov), that's up to you to decide.
I imagine it would be useful to have a way to merge all those areas together automatically rather than doubling up shadows. But if existing functionality is supposed to be able to do that I don't know. If not then close as not a bug.

Back in May, the shadows wouldn't do this kind of thing
*Forgive me for reacting earlier, I was a bit jumpy when I noticed this issue.
where the opacity doubles when strokes are overlapping each other.

Randell Acuram (Ranakade) added a comment to T64946: Inconsistent viewport display of Stroke objects with visual effects.

The FX are working in Screen Space, so any change in the viewport or camera angle will change the final result. Really, FX will work as compositor using the final render/viewport image and apply a filter on it. If you chnage image, you get different result.
I don't think we can do more here, because in future releases this will be replaced by new compositing features, but now all is pending of design.

+1
Complained about the same thing to the blender.chat #ui yesterday.
If you have more than 1 grease pencils, sooner or later a layer's onion skin, other than your active(working on) grease pencil will end up in the way.
You have to go to object mode -> select the other object(GP)->go to properties-> layers -> turn off onion skinning -> go to object mode ->select your work grease pencil again-> go t draw mode and get back to work.
As I said in the chat....I might be the odd person...but it's too many steps to turn a toggle on and off. Especially when it's an often used toggle.

This is a technical limitations on the method used to generate rim. Maybe we could do something, but it will require a new design/method.

Can't reproduce this on my end. Does if help if you set your GPU into "performance mode" in the nvidia control panel?

Randell Acuram (Ranakade) added a comment to T63543: Can't convert Grease Pencil to Curve/Mesh.

I can convert to Curves. Did you try these options?

I think I figured it out.
I understand how it works now;Just tried it; I had to convert the Grease Pencil to Polygon Curves first, then convert that new Polygon Curve object to Mesh.
Much thanks! :-)
