      Effect:Average
      Category:Color Filter
      Speed:Fast

      Description: The Average Effect lets you selectively Average the Red, Green, Blue, and Alpha channels between Color 1 and Color 2. This produces a 50% blend of both colors.

      The math is expressed as follows (just for interest):

      Result = (Color1 + Color2) / 2

      Note that the Blend Effect gives you a similar capability with the additional ability to control the amount of the mix.

       
      Options: The Average Effect has the following Options Pane:

      Average Red:If set to a Green Check Mark the Color 1 Red Channel will be Averaged with the Color 2 Red Channel. When set to a Red X the Color 1 Red Channel is not Averaged with the Color 2 Red Channel.
      Average Green:If set to a Green Check Mark the Color 1 Green Channel will be Averaged with the Color 2 Green Channel. When set to a Green X the Color 1 Green Channel is not Averaged with the Color 2 Green Channel.
      Average Blue:If set to a Blue Check Mark the Color 1 Blue Channel will be Averaged with the Color 2 Blue Channel. When set to a Blue X the Color 1 Blue Channel is not Averaged with the Color 2 Blue Channel.
      Average Alpha:If set to a Alpha Check Mark the Color 1 Alpha Channel will be Averaged with the Color 2 Alpha Channel. When set to a Alpha X the Color 1 Alpha Channel is not Averaged with the Color 2 Alpha Channel.
      Output Color 1:By default this is set to REPLACE which means that the set color will be output to Color 1. You can change this as explained in Options Pane Color Mixers.
      Output Color 2:By default this is set to IGNORE which means that the Color 2 will be ignored (the original Color 2 will be kept). You can change this as explained in Options Pane Color Mixers.

      Example: The following image shows taking two Effects and averaging them together.

      The image below shows our two source images. The image on the left is a Texture Effect assigned to Slot 1 and Color 1. The image on the right is a 2-Color Gradient Effect assigned to Slot 2 and Color 2.

      In Slot 3 we have our Average with default values. The final image looks like this:
