Opacity of a comp that uses continuous rasterised layers
on Apr 24, 2014 at 8:13:34 am

Hello,

I have a comp that has 2 illustrator ai layers that are set to 'continuous rasterize'. I then also set the actual comp in my main comp to the same setting and scale it up to the size I want, and all looks fine. However, when I adjust the opacity of this comp, rather than adjust the opacity of the comp as a whole, each layer of my comp seems to have the opacity adjusted separately and I can see through each layer of my comp. i.e.; I can see the bottom layer through my top layer.

Why is it doing this and is there a way around it?

Scale up the elements in the precomp far enough that you won't need to scale them up in the main comp. Then, in the main comp don't set the precomp to collapse transformations.

Thanks for getting back to me Michael. I kinda figured that may be the case. Thanks for your help.
