I have some white text that fades out on a red background (rgb (255,0,0)) in After Effects.
For some reason, in After Effects, the effect of the text fading out is a dark, almost 'black', animating with Opacity:
Whereas in Photoshop, the red 'comes through' the text, resulting in a reddish, transluscent white:
What am I missing? I'm confused why a '20%' white Text Layer on a Red solid would end up being black/grey in After Effects?
EDIT This problem disappears when turning off the Layer Style, which is a simple Inner Shadow with the following settings:
Blend Mode: Multiply Color: Black Opacity: 75% Use Global Light: Off Angle: 0x+120,0° Distance: 1,0 Choke: 0,0% Size: 1,0 Noise: 0,0%
So I suppose, why does a simple layer style cause everything to go black when reducing opacity of the text layer?
