Chapter 10. Effects Fundamentals > Applying Effects to an Adjustment Layer

Applying Effects to an Adjustment Layer

As you recall from Chapter 4, the effects contained in an adjustment layer are applied to all the layers below it. You save time and effort by applying effects to a single layer, rather than multiple layers. You can create an adjustment layer within After Effects, or convert an existing layer into an adjustment layer.

Though the concept of using adjustment layers seems simple enough, the topic is worth revisiting in order to explore a few of its possibilities. This section touches on how you can limit the effects of an adjustment layer using a mask or a layer's existing alpha channel.
