I had done a bunch of Paint node work using a background going to Input 1 for cloning, but once I finished I, realized adding a gradient to my background source was needed to help blend it into the composite.
It seems that the Paint node work only captures how the Input 1/Source looked at the moment it was cloned (before adding a gradient to the node chain), so now all the Paint clones no longer match with the background (even though the gradient comes before the Paint node).
Would I have to redo all my paint work with the gradient existing before doing any cloning or is there another way to get the paint node to update to the current state of the Input 1 source? Thanks for any help!!!
