Comparison between Legacy Knockouts Method vs New Knockouts Method detailed below
|Function||Legacy Knockouts Method||New Knockouts Method|
Use Opacity Mask
(Refer to image below)
Different transparencies can be applied for each knockout layer, which means opacities can overlap.
If ‘Replace existing knockouts are disabled’, when changing the % for ‘Use Opacity Mask’, the setting will apply ONLY TO the knockout layer for which the knockout setting was applied.
Transparency is now applied ONLY TO the Opacity Mask (which contains all of the knockout layers).
If ‘Replace existing knockouts are disabled’, when changing the % for ‘Use Opacity Mask’, the setting will affect ALL knockout layers grouped under the Opacity Mask.
