Rotate Layer in Synfig

Is there any way to make a rotate layer apply to only the layer immediately under it, but not others? I have imported an image with the blend method on “Multiply” and I want to rotate the imported image without rotating the shape I have created under it. What do you think is the solution? Thanks so much for the help!

Encapsulate them, the rotate layer over the imported image.

This would normally work, but I need the rotate layer to apply to the image and the image to apply to the shape under it. If I encapsulate the rotate layer and the image, then the image will not affect the shape under it.

Paste Canvas Layer has Blend Method parameter available too.

You can encapsulate your rotate and image layers, and turn the blend method of the paste canvas layer into Multiple. It will result what you expected.
