    How to add alpha information across multiple effects ?

    sebastian___

      I have a single adjustment layer with some effects (linear color key or third party plugins). Like this :

       

      1. Effect generates transparency - leaves only the lighter colors

      2. The second effect should key out all the colors except a certain green hue from the remaining colors

       

      But it doesn't work. The second effect will sample from the complete image and will ignore the keying performed by the first effect.

      I also tried to do this with 2 adjustment layers and also with pre-compose. But it's not working.

      The only working solution would be to export on disk the image keyed out with the first effect, import and apply the second effect. But that is very primitive, I hope there is another way.
