I have a ps file and on top of that I have an adjustment layer with cc light sweep applied to it. How can I get it so that when the light sweep moves over the ps layer beneath it it reveals only what the light sweep is touching? Working in AE 7 Pro

Apply a mask to the underlying layer. Animate the Mask Shape property to reveal the layer as needed. You can also tweak the Mask Feather setting to get a smoother appearance.

Good Luck!

Duplicate the light layer and use one of them as a luma(or inverted) matte on the PS layer.
