I have a problem when trying to use an adjustment layer to apply a drop shadow to multiple images.
Here's what I'm trying to do.
I am creating a floating gallery in After Effects CC (latest updates are installed).
There are 75 photos and each photo is a 3D layer.
I want to add a adjustment layer to automatically add a drop shadow to all the images on the timeline.
It doesn't seem to work. Is there another work-around other then manually adding the effect to each image.
Adjustment layers operate on the accumulated buffer of all layers below just like a pre-comp. this will never work the way you possibly expect it. You have to apply the effect to each individual layer.
Thanks for the reply. I went and manually added the effect to each layer. For future reference, does it matter that the layer are 3D for a adjustment layer to work?
Think for the adjustment layer as a global setting for all the layers below, and for the drop shadow effect as personal effect for every photo regarding their global poistion, sizes etc.
