Hi CC,

In CS5 you can use several masks on one solid layer. In CS6 I go to draw another mask and there's no option for blend modes...?

What's new or rather how can I use more than one mask per solid?

Its working with me. I don't whats the problem but I can make any number of masks in one solid and Blend modes are available too.

Here is my file:

You know, I can't look at your file cuz I'm tracking 3d...in AE, wow. But your echo tells me that it might have something to do with the fact I'm using a trial version.

I had something similar crop up earlier. Glad to know it's not a new thing as they've made some adjustments to their masking tool.

I will keep that in mind prior to posting going forward.

Thanks Vishesh! :D

Perhaps you've been experimenting wit AE's various view options, and you've just lost track. You can reset to AE's Standard View, which can help.

Probably not the issue but I'll add that mask blend modes are only available on closed masks.

You know, now I'm in another comp and it's working...?

Strange. That might be one for Adobe to answer.

Thanks anyway everybody. :)
