Is there a way to quickly preview blend modes, similar to the shift+ and shift- like AfterAffects?

This would seem to be a no brainer but nobody seems to know the answer.... I have a hard time believing I have to endure the sea-saw process of clicking on a given blend mode each time I want to preview an affect.

    I don't think so. But I would like that also.

    The next issue you will find with Blend Modes is "Opacity Droppings"

     

    Anyone that uses Blend Modes...naturally uses Opacity as part of the setting. ie. the degree of blend.

     

    (The two work hand in hand.)

     

    Problem is.. as soon as you do  this... an automatic opacity keyframe is created.

     

    This is guaranteed to drive you nuts!

     

    It does not work this way in AEFX .  where it is more logically and practically implemented with a normal way of setting a keyframe manually.

    You could turn the stopwatch off before you tweek the effect.

     

    008: After you select a blend mode, place mouse over dropdown and scroll through all modes.

    That is the work around Ann, and a good enough one...when one remembers it and does so.
