Examples

Blend

Wipe Example for Blend compositing node

This example demonstrates a simple wipe effect using the Blend COP. The wipe transition is created by inputting an animated alpha mask into the Blend COP.

Blur

ActionZoom Example for Blur compositing node

This example demonstrates how a Ramp and a Radial Blur can be combined to create an Action Zoom effect on your image.

Basic Example for Blur compositing node

This example demonstrates some of the blur filter types found in the Blur COP.

It also shows how two blur filter types can be combined and adjusted on individual X or Y axis.

Glow Example for Blur compositing node

This example demonstrates how to create a glowing effect using the Blur COP.

To do this, part of an image is extracted using luminance and brightened. This area is then blurred to simulate a glow and composited over the original image.

Mask Example for Blur compositing node

This example demonstrates how alpha masks can control the areas of an image the Blur COP will effect.

There are three different set ups, with various types of mattes to show how the Blur COP can be fine tuned.

Channel Copy

BasicUses Example for Channel Copy compositing node

This example shows various ways in which the Channel Copy COP can apply channels from its inputs to the final output image.

Color Curve

ColorCurveCorrection Example for Color Curve compositing node

How to color correct with color curves using the Color Curve COP.

Composite

Features Example for Composite compositing node

This example demonstrates several features of the Composite COP such as Weighted layers, Transforms, Tiling, and Motion Blur.

Types Example for Composite compositing node

This example demonstrates the numerous ways that images can be composited together.

Crop

CropWindowBorder Example for Crop compositing node

This example demonstrates three methods of altering an images viewing area. The differences between the Crop COP, Window COP, and Border COP are compared.

Defocus

Basic Example for Defocus compositing node

This example explores various methods of blurring an image using the Defocus COP.

DepthOfField Example for Defocus compositing node

This example demonstrates how the Defocus COP can mimic a depth of field effect using a detailed mask. An image containing point and normal map information is used. This allows a Depth of Field COP to act as a camera, and create a focus mask for the Defocus COP.

Deform

MakeRipples Example for Deform compositing node

This example demonstrates how to create a ripple effect using the Deform COP. A custom animated displacement map is created using the Ramp, Gamma, and Noise COPs. The displacement map is then used by the Deform COP to alter the image.

Emboss

EmbossMandril Example for Emboss compositing node

Embossing images with the Emboss COP.

Environment

EnvironmentMap Example for Environment compositing node

This example demonstrates how the Environment COP is can be used to simulate multiple light sources around a scene. This is a good method of changing scene lighting, because 2D images will render faster then 3D.

Expand

ExpandButterfly Example for Expand compositing node

This example demonstrates a variety of methods to refine an alpha matte using the Expand COP. The expand, shrink, fill holes, and remove holes operations of the Expand COP are explored. In addition the use of an external alpha mask to further manipulate alpha mattes is shown.

Fog

Foggy Example for Fog compositing node

This example demonstrates how the Fog COP can simulate a foggy, misty, hazy, or smokey atmosphere. The point and normal data contained in an images deep raster are used to calculate the fog.

Geokey

GeokeyBasics Example for Geokey compositing node

How to use 3D information to extract portions of an image for mattes or local modification. This examples uses the Geokey COP.

Geometry

GeometryMattes Example for Geometry compositing node

Using the Geometry COP to make solid mattes out of SOP geometry.

Hue Curve

HueEditing Example for Hue Curve compositing node

How to color correct certain hues by adjusting the saturation and luminance. This example uses the Color Curve COP.

Lighting

Lighting3d Example for Lighting compositing node

This example demonstrates three different ways that the Lighting COP can simulate 3D lighting, using images with Point and Normal deep raster information. Point lighting, directional atmospheric lighting, and lighting without Normals are explored.

LightingFlatBump Example for Lighting compositing node

This example demonstrates the effects of the Lighting COP on a 2D image. Flat lighting and lighting with the use of a bump map are explored.

Mask

MaskButterfly Example for Mask compositing node

This example shows various masking techniques with the Mask COP.

Corner Pin

MakeShadow Example for Corner Pin compositing node

How to make an angled shadow on a flat surface with the Corner Pin COP.

Ramp

RampAdvanced Example for Ramp compositing node

More advanced features of the Ramp COP.

RampBasics Example for Ramp compositing node

The basic features of the Ramp COP.

Rotoshape

BasicMatting Example for Rotoshape compositing node

Using the Rotoshape COP interactively to create mattes.

RotoshapeMasking Example for Rotoshape compositing node

How to create a matte with the Rotoshape COP to restrict the area of effect of another COP.

Sharpen

SharpeningFeatures Example for Sharpen compositing node

Using the Sharpen COP to reduce blurriness and enhance edges.

Streak Blur

StreakBlur Example for Streak Blur compositing node

This example shows the basic uses of Streak Blur.

StreakFlame Example for Streak Blur compositing node

Using the Streak Blur COP to create a candle flame.

StreakTrail Example for Streak Blur compositing node

How to use the Streak COP to create motion trails.

Switch

SelectingInputs Example for Switch compositing node

Using the Switch COP to control image network flow. This example shows how to replace empty File COPs with a warning image, and a simple example of controlling blur with a switch and defocus COP.

Tile

TextureTiling Example for Tile compositing node

How to create a low-resolution scrolling text display (with old fashioned bulbs). This example uses the Tile, Font, Transform and various compositing COPs.
