Blending Modes are nonresponsive, and applying a blending mode also makes the Opacity non-responsive.
Might want to put a clip/image underneath.
Thanks, I thought it would blend with the black. Why doesn't he opacity respond within those blend modes?
There is no background, it's a void and shows as black.
If you want it to blend with black, put a black color matte underneath.
Only a few blend modes will work with black. You need to use color.
Yeah, there's nothing underneath the layer to "blend" it with. Add a layer underneath and then try different modes and opacity.
