hairline cracks on newly painted coffee ceiling

5 years ago
We had coffee ceilings repainted a few months ago with BM Advance. Looked great. Now we are
Starting to see hairline cracks and the beam joints. Husband has figured out its from the joists on upper level slightly moving during regular walking etc. All cracks are in the middle of the room. We had a latex paint on there before and never had this problem. I guess BM Advance is a more brittle paint.

Can’t fix easily as it is on the flat joints. Dont want to fill and respray as it will likely happen again once paint cures. Any other ideas?

Anyone seen this before? Should painter be somewhat liable? He picked the BM Advance.
