      Effect:Blend
      Category:Color Filter
      Speed:Fast

      Description: The Blend Effect is similar to the Average Effect. The difference is that Average always does a 50% blend. The Blend Effect lets you specify the exact amount of blend that you want applied.

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

      Result = ((Color1*(1.0-Blend)) + (Color2*Blend))

       
      Options: The Blend Effect has the following Options Pane:

      Blend:This value sets the amount of blend. The closer it is to zero the more Color 1 will dominate. The closer it is to 1.0 the more Color 2 will dominate. If Blend is set to .5, equal amounts of Color 1 and Color 2 will be blended (this settings is the same as the Average Effect).
      Blend Red:If set to a Green Check Mark the Color 1 Red Channel will be Blend with the Color 2 Red Channel. When set to a Red X the Color 1 Red Channel is not Blend with the Color 2 Red Channel.
      Blend Green:If set to a Green Check Mark the Color 1 Green Channel will be Blend with the Color 2 Green Channel. When set to a Green X the Color 1 Green Channel is not Blend with the Color 2 Green Channel.
      Blend Blue:If set to a Blue Check Mark the Color 1 Blue Channel will be Blend with the Color 2 Blue Channel. When set to a Blue X the Color 1 Blue Channel is not Blend with the Color 2 Blue Channel.
      Blend Alpha:If set to a Alpha Check Mark the Color 1 Alpha Channel will be Blend with the Color 2 Alpha Channel. When set to a Alpha X the Color 1 Alpha Channel is not Blend 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: To show the Blend Effect we will take our original, untouched image of Arches National Park and load it as a Texture Effect in Slot 1:

      In Slot 2 we have our Blend and have set the Blend option to 0.3. This will let Color 1 (our Texture) be 70% blended with Color 2 at 30%. We set Color 2 to yellow and get this result:
