Hi I hope someone can help with this issue I'm having.

I have a composition with some stock footage of some smoke on a black background. I've changed the blending mode to screen so that I can put the smoke over other footage, which is fine, it works great. But then I want to duplicate the effect and make alterations in a new composition to bring it on other a different part of the back ground footage. So I make a new comp, copy over the smoke, and it has its black background back, only this time I can not get rid of it even when changing the blending mode to screen. Has anyone else encountered this issue please?

Without workflow details and screenshots showing the modified properties of your layers, it is very hard to diagnose any kind of problem. Please drag screenshots to the reply field on the forum or use the Toolbar to embed them. The Drag & Drop here... field is sketchy at best.
