I created a solid layer in AE and made it 3D. After positioning the layer, I wanted to invoke the mode command of multiply. However, although the option to invoke different modes is present when the layer is created, it is no longer available after positioning the layer in 3D space. Is there a way I can invoke the multiply mode on a layer even though it is not available on the drop down menu?
I would bet that you have ray-traced rendering turned on. Blend modes and effects are not available with Ray-traced rendering. You should have received a warning when you enabled that rendering engine. There are workarounds but we would have to see your composition structure to walk you through it.
Thank you. You were correct in your assessment of the problem. I am still learning AE and very much appreciate help when it is offered.
