    Your image link is broken, so I can't see what you're trying to do. If you could repost it that would help.

    Judging from your description of what you're trying to do, you might have to switch the blend mode. You're using "Screen", which basically keeps all light parts of a video/image, and removes all the black. Perfect for stock footage of any light effects that have a black background. However if you're working with footage of, for example, smoke, that's an effect that most likely should darken the image, so it has a white background and needs another blend mode. Try the "multiply" blend mode here, this is basically the opposite of screen - it gets rid of light areas and keeps the dark ones.

    (This explanation is quite simplified to be easily understandable. If you're interested in the math of blend modes, the wikipedia article on them has a lot of interesting info.)
