Screen Mode and Nested Compositions
on Jan 15, 2017 at 5:31:45 pm

Hey folks, I'm going to ask this assuming I'm doing something wrong, but I can't figure out what.

I have some pre-matted video elements that I'm putting into a comp with some other animated 2D elements. I set these video elements to screen so they lose their black background. However when I use this composition in my main comp, the black background has returned?! Any ideas? Is there a setting or something that I'm missing?

Thanks for your replies folks!

Nested composition will not respect the inside layers blend modes unless you turn on the collapse switch for the precomp.

Red Giant has a free Unmult effect that makes black transparent, so you can do this with an effect instead of a blend mode.
