The difference between the classic mode and the layer mode remains in the rendering order of the effects. Here is an example with 3 groups and a video player.

  • Group 0:   white border
  • Group 1:   white border, green color, hypnotic filling and elactic position structure
  • Group 2:   cyan border, blue color

In the classic mode, we render the color of all groups, then the video and the rest of the effects group by group.

In the Layer mode, groups are considered as layer. The first thing rendered is the player and then the other effects group by group. So if you use a color in this mode, you will not see your video !

Here is an overview of the hierarchy in both modes :
