    Add effect to a transparent layer

    reyreyreyes

      Hi all

       

      I've been searching for an answer to this for a full day, so here's the question:

       

      What is the best way to add an effect to a transparent layer? For example, I have a black & white video, and I would like to add a strobe effect on top with colour (so I can't apply the effect to the black and white layer) that then effects the black and white layer beneath it.

       

      I know I could render out a .mov with RGB & Alpha (after using the 'Toggle Transparency Grid'), but that's unhelpful as it limits me to control once I've exported.

       

      That said, I'm assuming I need a transparent layer, or is there another way?

       

      Thanks in advance for your help!
