soft light math changed?
Has the math behind soft light blending mode changed recently? For years, I have used soft light to add effects with a 50% gray solid but now the results are different... I've tested the project settings/color management and can't seem to get this right...

Thank you for your careful attention to detail and for reporting this. After Effects changed the Lighten and Soft Light blending modes in 15.1, which was 2018, to conform to the Adobe blending standard so it would be consistent with other Adobe applications. These blending modes in After Effects should now match Photoshop, for example. Please let us know if you see otherwise.
