    AE CC 2014 - Using a Mask on a Collapsed Precomp destroy's it's properties??

    m0bes

      Hey all I am having a ridiculous problem.

      I have a normal precomp with a layer that has a multiply blending mode.

      Normally i would collapse the precomp in its parent comp, and the Multiply Blending mode would be preserved (which it is).

      The problem comes when I apply a simple Mask to the precomp, or use another layer as an alpha mask.

      I loose my collapsed properties on the precomp....

      Anyone know why this might happen? I'm using AE CC 2014, I FEEL like I've done this maneuver a million times before, is there something new and different about CC 2014 that I didn't catch? possibly I'm just forgetting something simple.

      here is what's going on in my comp:
