hi - i have two layers. i want to place a lens flare over top layer, wash it out, and then transition to layer underneath. i tried placing flare on solid color layer but that doesn't work because you cannot see the layer underneath.
can you explain how to do this?
The flare itself is an effect applied to or on a solid layer. You want to use Screen blend mode to remove the black pixels. But that doesn't always work as you expect it to. You may need a third party freebie known as UnMult. Google it.
You can also search the help system for Lens Flare for lots of offline assitance on how to use the effect. Takes patience.
I'd have maybe put the flare over the scope in the logo but that might have been cliché.
