Working with Composite Modes

This chapter introduces advanced composting techniques. You'll create and animate a sophisticated logo for the production company that produced “The Midnight Sun,” Grace Films. You will also create two more composites for use within the movie. A discussion of composite modes begins this chapter.

Composite modes allow you to choose different ways you can combine images. Used in layered effects, they change how two or more images are combined into one image. Changing a composite mode changes how the pixel values are to be mixed between two or more images using different combinations of pixel values above and below each other in the Timeline's video tracks. Each composite mode uses a different mathematical formula that defines how pixel values in the affected layer are combined with the layer or layers beneath it. The resulting pixels are the composite you see.
