The opacity has been renamed as Blending Mask in more recent versions.
Could you post a screenshot of your setup?

Here is the setup image am doing this right way? when i aplly smart mask to the fill layer its not working


When using material layering, you should apply generators and effects to the layer itself, not to its mask, since your layer stack in this case is already a mask in itself.

Thank u so much, its bcoz of i just follow the video and was like to use smart masks (in the video the smart mask has been used). but now i am using generators and filters. then i cant get the normal details from the generators even if i change the material normal intensity in the parameters. can u help me what i am missing?

thanks
