How does 'Action Strength' work?

The action strength setting saves you from having to create additional actions if the action you want to run is perhaps a bit to strong for your tastes.

We have found that most actions look the best when when toned down from their original strength, so we built in the ability to control this without having to create these "helper" actions that do the same thing.

So how does it work exactly? There are two types of actions to consider, the first are actions that create new layers when run. With these types of actions, using an action strength of 50 is equivalent to taking all the new layers created by the action, grouping them into their own folder and then lowering the opacity of that folder to 50%.

The other type of actions are actions that just modify the current layer. For these actions, using an action strength of 50 is equivalent to duplicating the current layer, running the action on the duplicated layer, and then lowering the opacity of that layer to 50%.
