I posted a question about this yesterday on the main site. So far no dice. 

Is there a way to mask effects and smart masks so they only apply to certain areas? When I drag a smart mask to my layers panel it overrides whatever masks I have in place and applies whatever effect it creates onto everything below the layer. I would love to have this effect only apply to select areas but if I try changing its masking settings it seems to disable the effect. Suggestions? 

Here are the examples. Notice how the previous mask on the layer gets overwritten.

Smart Mask:
