Tip: Quickly comparing blend modes in the Composite TOP with a slider

It can get a bit tedious to click and select over and over again when you want to compare all the blend modes.

I figured out there are 46 of them (0 is the first one), and they can be selected by number:

So I made a slider, multiplied it by 45, and under “Integer” I chose “Floor”.
The integer step is optional, but I think it makes more sense semantically.

Much more fun than just looking at a confusing list, with a much higher chance of happy accidents.

Hi @KristianP,

that’s a nice quick browse through everything!
Also have a look at the blendModes Component in the Palette under Tools for a component that gives you a visual idea of all of them.

Cheers
Markus
