When I apply an effect to a layer and I’m in the layer window, it doesn’t show up. It only shows up in the comp window. I feel as if the roto goes straight for the source file and the effects have no bearing on it at the layer level
Hi. Precompose the layer your are going to roto, add the effect(s) in the precomp, go to your main composition and rotobrush the precomposition. When you are finished go into the precomp and delete the effects. In your main comp the precomp is the rotoed copy.
