I have a repeating art on a single background. To ease modification process I've converted it to smart object - that way I only need to modify it once, and it updates with all copies simultaneously. But inside smart object there is no background - and I have objects with blending mode multiply.
I can understand why after saving my smart object multiply blending does not apply to the singular background - the background is not the part of it. Instead I get something like this:
And this is how it should look like:
Now, to my question; is there a way to make the selected layers inside smart object blend with layers outside of smart objects? I know there is a blending option called direct transition (not sure on the name tho, using diffrent language) for object groups, but there isn't one for smart objects.
Or maybe my workflow idea is flawed, and I should approach repeatable graphics issue differently?
