Allow track mattes to be used multiple times
Track mattes should be able to be used by multiple other layers and no longer required to live directly above they layer they affect.
It's very common to need to reuse a matte. The way things are now, I have to duplicate my mattes for every single layer that uses them.
I should just be able to select which layer I want to use as a matte (along with alpha/luma options) and be able to reuse that matte for as many other layers as needed.

Good Idea! i don't use the Set Matte Effect that often because it makes troubles some times, its more complicated to acces and you loose very easy the overview in a comp with a lot of layer

I'd say the Set Matte would be the best Option for this one, But Set Matte has it's Issues and Often needs to be Precomposed before it works. which is annoying. so i agree with this one.

psssst use the "set matte" effect and you can use one layer to matte many.
