Sorry, but the paper effekt are too bright

Heister Reinsch says:

Love it, but one Problem: Minute 12:15 wont work. If I add the clipping mask to the underneath layer, the effect on the upper layer is gone. Clicking on the eye of the layer to watch the difference there is no effect. From that point I couldnt go on with that tutorial, because the further effects wont work. Any idea? Thank you.

Raven says:

Nice tutorial. A question.

Tate Nettestad says:

When I try to change the FX for the lettering layer it automatically pulls up the layer for the background that has already been set.

Vivian Sung says:

Very cool tutorial, thank you. But I wonder could this happen if we use the white background and black text? I have a problem with those color.

Osnei Machado says:

Thank you so much for this amazing tutorial! I made it many times to test different fonts and it was amazing! I only had one problem: When I pressed the arrows down + left to put the shadows inside, it didn’t work for me… then my paper effect was not 100% like the video. I tried and I tried but nothing… Anyway, great work and thanks again!

Miss Coconutte says:

I have got a problem: in 8:30, when he brings the “lettering copy”‘ ‘s oppacity to 0 and he applies the blending effects on this layer you he is able to see what he does. If I bring the oppacity to 0 and I work with this layer I can’t see anything happening. Does anyone know why it doesn’t work?
