Is there a general preference to make layers mix the opposite way? So that layer one would be on top instead of on bottom?
That would make absolutely no sense from a compositing perspective!
I know one partial solution would be to map your midi controller the opposite; but that doesn't get around the problem of then adding another layer and everything just shifted over etc. VDMX, GRANDVJ, and every other software i've ever used have mixed the opposite way than this in terms of layer priority.
Any software I've ever used (Photoshop, Millumin, Madmapper, d3, Watchout, After Effects, Premiere Pro, Motion, Final Cut Pro etc...) both composite the same way Resolume does and add new layers on top.
I don't use VDMX or GRANDVJ but your post got me curious so I downloaded demos for both of these softwares and as far as I can tell layers get composited the exact same way as in Resolume where the bottom layer gets rendered through the top layer based on the blend mode. It seems that VDMX adds new layers below the existing one but they still get composited the same way (I can't see Layer 2 if Layer 1 is 100% Over).
Am I missing something or not understanding what you want/need?
