Illuminate mix mode?

Recommended Posts

Simple one - I can't find any reference in the manual as to what is the calculation for 'illumination' mix mode

and since it is not in the normal family of blending modes in other applications - I'm wondering what exactly is happening here?

(the shadow areas seem to stay dark, but the highlights seem to carry over colour information - which isn't displayed in 'normal'??)

Hey Spiral


That is in the manual, but it took me a while to find it !


But when you do, the bit about Illumination goes thusly...



This channel displays the distribution of brightness (incl. shadows) throughout the scene as if all objects were white. Only the dispersion of light on the objects’ surfaces will be displayed.
