Houdini 19.0 Nodes Compositing nodes Mosaic

Mosaic compositing node

Takes a sequence of images and combines them into 1 image by tiling them.

On this page

This operation takes a sequence of images and combines them into 1 image by tiling them. If the sequence is not completely divisible by the number of images per line or images per frame, the missing tiles are filled with a background color.

A limit on the number of images per frame can also be used to create more than one mosaic frame with a smaller set of images.

Parameters

Images per Line

Defines the number of image per row or per column, depending on whether images are stacked by row or column.

Stack Vertically

Defines the vertical stack order.

Stack Horizontally

Defines the horizontal stack order.

Stack Images in Rows

If on, images are stacked horizontally first, then vertically. If off, images are stacked vertically first.

Max Images/Frame

Limits the number of input images in one image. If on, each 'N' input images form 1 output image. If off, the entire sequence is put into 1 image.

Keep Full Size

If on, the image will always have at least as many images as specified in 'Images per Line' and 'Max Images/Frame', even if the sequence is shorter than either value. The missing frames are filled with the background color.

Background Color

The color to substitute for areas of the mosaic not covered by input frames, which can occur if the number of frames in the input is not evenly divisible by the Images per Line (or Max Images per Frame).
