Background video effect inheritance Issues

New to webflow, testing some things out, so maybe I’m just overlooking some silly little thing here – I watched the tutorial on background videos but it looks like the menus and palettes have changed since it was made so those instructions don’t apply so well anymore.

Whatever effects I apply to a background video seem to dictate the appearance of any other item appearing IN the ‘section’ of the background video, as well as content placed relative in a layer on top of the video.

Basically anything touching the video seems to inherit the video’s applied effects (blur, opactity, etc.) And gradients, colour effects supposedly applied ‘on top’ of the video just don’t seem to work at all.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?
