Hi, I'm doing a set of precomps for a video, and everything is in black and white except for some logos I was given.
On the precomp I put a Tint effect changing all the black and white to blues, but I want the logo (which is inside the precomp an thus affected by the Tint), to retain its original color, is there anyway to "exclude" this particular layer from the Tint effect?

Few different ways, but I would remove the Tint from the precomp, step into the precomp and add an adjustment layer. Place the logo above the adjustment layer and add the Tint effect to the adjustment layer.

Thanks! Did just that, I guess I was only overthinking it.
