ok i have a solid layer with a mask under the solid is a film clip
so when i play clip i see a coloured shape on top my film clip
now if i apply an effect to the solid then i see the effect in the coloured shape ontop my film clip
except when i apply my "bcc7 clouds" effect ,,, when i do this the clouds fill the whole screen
rather than stay with in the mask
why would this be
Rendering order. You can precpose or you can add the effect to a solid below your mask layer and use the mask as an alpha track matte. This is not a bug.
