[Request] Fully Integrated ‘Blend If’ Functionality Would be an Absolute Game Changer.
After more than a decade using AE, the sole feature that I wish was properly intergrated into the program would be ‘Blend-If’ functionality.
Blend-If is a layer style and allows the user to fade and control a layer’s alpha channel based on It’s own luminosity and/or the luminosity of layers below it.
The feature is incredibly powerful for composition and editing within photoshop and in my opinion would be a massively valuable tool for AE in the same way.
Since it is a photoshop Layer Style property it is already somewhat useable within AE, but only if you only import a PS document with the style already applied. However you now cannot change, manipulate or copy this layer style. But the fact that it is still honoured by AE and works to a very basic degree hopefully suggests that it could be programmed in easier than normal and not something that would need to be created from scratch.
Thank you very much for reading, and creating a great program!
