I've been trying to chain track mattes. "SOLID WHITE" layer is using Alpha Inverted Matte of "HI THERE" precomp. "How are you" layer should use Alpha Matte of "SOLID LAYER". That way, the "How are you.." text appears when the "SOLID WHITE" slides down. Apparently this combination is not possible without additional tweaks. Any idea what could be the work around?

Thanks for reply! I played a little with Set Matte, but no luck with that. I don't think I gain anything with mukliple shapes, because I still need to hide them (now I need to hide 2) when they slide down. I found another link that depicts the animation I am after. These guys are using a solid background layer without gradient applied to it, which I think is a simplification of what I want..
