Hey everyone,

Hope you all had a nice holiday!

I have a precomp consisting of two layers, both in add mode. In the master comp, collapse transform is enabled. When I try to add a curves adjustment, the blend modes get wacky. I'm sure this is a common pitfall and I've RTFM to no avail. Any suggestions are appreciated as always.

Thank you,
Craig

When you apply a blend mode to a layer, it only affects the layers below it in
  • the same comp.
  • You won't get the look you seek by precomping the layers.
