The Maximum Effect takes the maximum values of the selected color channels between Color 1 and Color 2. In this Effect, each select channel from Color 1 is compared with the same channel from Color 2. Which ever has the higher value is used as that channels color.|
The Maximum Effect has the following Options Pane:|
|Maximum Red:||When set to a Green Check Mark, the Red Channel of Color 1 is compared with the Red Channel of Color 2. Which ever is higher is the new Red Channel.|
|Maximum Green:||When set to a Green Check Mark, the Green Channel of Color 1 is compared with the Green Channel of Color 2. Which ever is higher is the new Green Channel.|
|Maximum Blue:||When set to a Blue Check Mark, the Blue Channel of Color 1 is compared with the Blue Channel of Color 2. Which ever is higher is the new Blue Channel.|
|Maximum Alpha:||When set to a Alpha Check Mark, the Alpha Channel of Color 1 is compared with the Alpha Channel of Color 2. Which ever is higher is the new 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.|
To show the Maximum Effect we will take our Arches National Park image and load it into Slot 1 using the Texture Effect. In Slot 2 we have our Clouds, Marble, and Granite Effect with default values but Output Color 1 set to Ignore and Output Color 2 set to Replace.|
The following shows our two source images:
In Slot 3 we place our Maximum Effect with default values. The resulting image looks like this:
Note that since the Arches photo has brightness most everywhere, only the brightest portions of the Clouds Effect were higher than the Arches.
