This value can be keyed to animate by right-clicking on it and clicking on Insert Keyframe. [ 27 ] Working with Input and Output Nodes The Texture node The Texture node can load any texture that's available in the current Blender file or from Blender's procedural texture library, as shown in following screenshot: The Color socket outputs the RGB channel of the texture and the Value socket outputs the Luminance channel of the texture. The Offset and Scale parameters can be used to modify the texture.

Combined RGB, Red, Green, Blue, or Luminance channels can be read from the connected image. It can output mean/average values or a standard deviation, which measures the diversity of values. Summary This chapter covered different ways to get data in and out of Blender Compositor. This essentially forms the head and tail of the compositing flow. The next chapter will demonstrate image manipulation techniques using various Blender Compositor nodes. [ 31 ] Image Manipulation Techniques This chapter explains the different image manipulation nodes and their utilization procedures that are available in Blender Compositor.

The File Output node The File Output node can simulate AOVs (arbitrary output values) from the compositing flow, similar to rendering passes from a render layer. Connecting this node to any other node will write an image from the calculations done till the connected node. The Levels node Connecting the Levels node to an image can output the value of a selected component of the image. Combined RGB, Red, Green, Blue, or Luminance channels can be read from the connected image. It can output mean/average values or a standard deviation, which measures the diversity of values.
