I get the feeling that there's a simple solution to this issue, but I can't for the life of me figure it out.
I added the tint effect to one of my layers. Then I realized that I didn't want that effect to be present for the entire layer, just parts of the later. I'd like to accomplish this by creating a sprite, adding a tint (or tint mask?) effect, a non-normal blend mode, etc. to it, and placing it over certain parts of the layer. So far, no luck in figuring out how to make the part of the layer behind the sprite look the same as if I had added a tint effect to the entire layer. Any suggestions?
