Help with multiply blend mode.

Post by taimurhilas8 »

I've been using Arena for awhile and can't figure out what is happening with this multiply layer. We run Arena at all 3 of our church campuses and at 2 of them the multiply blend mode works different than at our main campus. From my understanding multiply should work by allowing the layers beneath it to show through the brightest points of the multiplied layer?

So why is it that at our main campus when nothing is beneath the layer that is set to multiply(essentially acting as a mask) the layer is visible? I can't figure it out. It's making things tough because it means that my 'mask' (the layer set to multiply) becomes visible when there's nothing below it. How do I change this behavior? happymod

If the multiply layer is the only one playing content you'll see the multiply layer's content.
If you'd like to use the layer as mask, try the 50Mask blend mode or set the layer to be a masking layer:
