Blend Modes and Expressions

Apart from a script.

I've seen a few ways people cheat this...Simulate a blend mode, with a multitude expressions in different parts of the layer (But no ones really decently perfected this, plus it's a faff to have to do it this way)

A better alternative is to have a few layers with the most common blendmodes you use (I mainly use Screen, Multiply, Soft Light, Hard Light and Luminosity), then add an opacity expression based on the blend mode you want.

A few years have gone by and we're onto cc 2018 that now allows json to be imported without the need of a script...Does anyone know if this has been applied to blend modes yet...I can't find anything.

More curious for future projects coming up.
