Hi

Im wondering if there is a technique to apply multiple Luma track mattes to a single layer in after effects. I guess the way would be to tryout the mattes one at a time and then pre comp them together - but it would be better if they could be edited within the same composition.

The rule in AE is firm: one track matte per layer. It's a pain, but that's the way it is.

Here's an AE quick tip (COW video tutorial) that might help you. It works with transparency, not luminance, but it does let you use more than one layer for your transparency control.

If you want more info, or can't watch the video, here's the AE help page on the feature Aharon is discussing.

Well, duh. I never used that. Thanks for setting both of us straight, Michael.

It's funny. I only found this feature yesterday. AE is a crazy little thing ain't she?
