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.
