Hover animation not working on z -1

Going through the WEbflow University 21 day Portfolio. I’m on Custom 2D and 3D Interactions - The hover effect is not working. I narrowed it down that the z depth of -1 for glow effect image which sits under the cms item (project image) does not respond to hover (or click for that matter) and if I set the z to 0 then the hover will work, however the effect is now on top of the project image and that is not desired. The video version and the current version of Webflow are not the same so I don’t know what’s changed or how to correct this. Thanks for any help.
