    Can an upper layer only affect a specific layer below it?

    Thongrrrl14 Level 1

      Yes, I know, my subject line was vague.


      Layer 1, the top layer is a masked solid, set at about 40% Opacity.


      Below it is Layer 2, the cartoon character.


      Below that is Layer 3, the background.


      Is there a way that the top layer (a black solid at 40% Opacity) can only affect Layer 2 just below it, the cartoon character... and NOT affect the Layer 3, the Background Layer?


      (See, it's supposed to look like a shadow that is cast over part of the cartoon character, but I don't want the shadow being seen over the background.)
