SABER- PRECOMP PROBLEM

Postby ononnopay on 12/10/2017, 12:50 am

Hi
I've been using Saber for last few months and I really love this plugin. However, I found a problem that can not be solved. I tried various tricks and it won't work.
Here's the problem-

I apply saber to a solid layer, which is in a pre-comp. Obviously, I have to change the mode of this solid layer 'screen'. Then I go back to the pre-comp and add a background behind it. The background won't be visible until I make the pre-comp itself 'screen' mode. And doing it makes everything inside that pre-comp 'screen'.

Please help me out on it! I can take screenshot and send it to you if you do not understand me. Thanks!

Yeah, that's a bummer with Saber, but rather than set it to screen, I'd suggest precomping your comp with saber in it,
and use these two plugs in on that Precomp layer...
Shift Channels (and set the alpha from lightness)
and 'Remove Color Matting' (and set the matte to black)
