Create dependent, editable duplicate of any layer
on Jun 29, 2019 at 11:24:58 am

I have the primary (white, red & teal) text layer "A". Behind it I have the exact same layer, filled in black + directional blur for a background effect, layer "B". Now every time I want to change just a little detail about layer A (character size, tracking, Animators...), I need to delete layer B, duplicate A again and paste all the effects once again.
I've had this situation many times before and will probably encounter it many more times to come. Is there a way to create a duplicate of layer A, which is essentially layer A, but I can add effects on top of it?
