I have a letter A (see left) as .ai file which has transparency set at 70% in Illustrator. In Photoshop I have a layer style Bevel & Emboss (see center) on this letter.

Is it possible to hide the original layer (letter A) so that the final image shows only the applied layer style (see right)? I tried editing in blending options under advanced blending but can't seem to figure it out.

If you're using a Layer Style in Photoshop, just drop the Fill opacity down to 0. This will render the smart object invisible and preserve the Layer Style effect:

Select the layer, and instead of modifying transparency, modify fill, (equivalent to Blending Options window/Blending Options:Defaults/Fill Opacity)
