Hello, there!

Well my issue is quite simple, but at the same time it's keeping me from progressing in my game.

I'm using the Orange Overlay plugin, and -as you may know- you can have several layers in a Parallax Map, such as:
Shadow
Light
Par
(The Overlay)
Ground

Not long ago I learned "Coloring techniques" in photoshop, by using this "Color Lookup" Adjustment Layer. This allows you to give your composition a color grading, which I would like to use as the Light layer.

Now, the problem is that the Color Lookup effect applies as a transparent layer to everything below it, BUT, if I isolate the layer, its totally transparent. This means that if I export it as a "Light" to RPG Maker, it wont be visible in the game.

Explanatory images below:

If I turn everything transparent but the color lookup, there is nothing.

This is a problem because the player or Npcs are not affected by the light, and it looks... bad.

My goal here is to make the Color Lookup something visible, tangible; that I can individually export as a light layer to my game.

I am quite sure there is a solution, I would be eternally grateful if someone can help me with this.
Thanks!!

There are 2 versions. One only affects combat, cutscene, and portraits. The other one changes more.
So, technically, the game now has 7 versions on steam.
