This movie is about a seldom used preference. Blend Interior Effects as Group, it's a rather esoteric one. It affects how the interior effects like in a Glow, in a Shadow, and the Color, Gradient and Pattern Overlay, either combined with themselves before moving onto the layers beneath to blend with those. Or do not. So let's see what we have here. We have a black circle on top of a red circle on top of a field of yellow and currently, Blend Interior Effects, the Interior Effect I have here is the Inner Glow.
The Inner Glow is blue, blend mode is Screen, Opacity is 75%. So currently this is not checked. If I check it, then this happens. So what is going on here? Well, the interior effects are blended with themselves before passing onto what's below. Now, we have a black circle, when set to a blend mode of Multiply, is going to overwhelm the red right here. But when this blue combines with the yellow beneath it, we get a green Inner Glow.
So wherever the black circle overlaps the yellow, we have a green Inner Glow. Notice how the Outer Glow, I am going to turn that off and turn it back on again, the Outer Glow because this is an outer effect is not affected by this checkbox at all. So, that's without the Interior Effects Blended as a Group, which is the default setting, and then with the Interior Effects Blended as a Group.
