Guys I have a question,
I have a Black to white bit complicated gradient in a separate layer, but i want that gradient as layer mask on a different layer, for use it in lens blur.
I tried it copy paste it in that layer mask but it wont work.!

Example
Layer 1 = black and white complicated depth pass
layer 2 = actual image
i want the layer1 to be the layer mask of layer2 to use the lens blur :(

Copy and paste into a layer mask works - you just have to make sure that you target the layer mask (and not the color channels) first.
