Blend Section

Top  Previous  Next

 

 

The Blend section, which appears for multiple layer types of the Texture Synthesis dialog, specifies how the current layer will be blended with other layers that may be below it.  In order for these properties to be useful, check the Layers box to ensure that more than one layer has been created, and that the currently selected layer isn't the bottom one.

 

 

Property

Description

Blend Mode

Specifies the technique used to blend the current layer with those below it.  Works similarly to layer blending in photo-editing applications.

Erode Mode

Will remove parts of the current layer depending on the colors of either the current layer, or those below it.  This property will only have an effect as long as the Erode property, described below, is set to a value greater than zero.

 

Upper Brightness

The brighter the current layer is at a specific location, the more likely it is to be removed at that point.

Upper Darkness

The darker the current layer is at a specific location, the more likely it is to be removed at that point.

Lower Brightness

The brighter the layers below the current one are at a specific location, the more likely the current layer is to be removed at that point.

Lower Darkness

The darker the layers below the current one are at a specific location, the more likely the current layer is to be removed at that point.

Upper Brighter

The brighter the current layer is relative to the ones below it at a specific location, the more likely it is to be removed at that point.

Upper Darker

The darker the current layer is relative to the ones below it at a specific location, the more likely it is to be removed at that point.

Erode

Specifies the extent to which erosion will take place, as defined by the Erode Mode property above.

Erode Sharpness

Defines how sharp the transition will be between areas that are and are not eroded.

Opacity

Controls the degree to which the current layer will influence the colors of any layers below it.
