I have many effects (Energy Balls, Neon Light, Mist, Explosions...) throughout my project .
I assigned most of them certain composite modes (ie: Overlay, Soft Light, Color Dodge...)
When I render the project, it goes through the render process just fine except for one thing:
Many of my effects I placed do not show up in the final rendered video.
Why? I started to investigate.
I checked on what could be the cause and as it turns out, during the render process all the layers' composite modes switched to Darken mode.
I thought it could've been an error on my part (possibly accidentally changing it to Darken) so I went through and corrected them again. But after rendering it again, the same problem arose and they all went back to Darken mode.
Edit** I also just discovered that when I save the project and close it, then open it later that the very same thing happens when I reopen the project.
Summary: My composite modes keep changing to Darken when I render a project and also when I open a saved project.
I have used EffectsLab quite a bit in the past and have never had this problem before.
Help would be much appreciated!
