Underlay Layer

The Underlay Layer effect lets you read an element's Underlay layer. By placing an Underlay Layer module after a drawing module in the Network view, you can display only the module's Underlay layer output. The Underlay Layer module can only be connected after a vector drawing layer or a vector type Composite module. Any bitmap information will not be processed.

This effect will only work if something has been drawn or painted on a drawing's Underlay layer.

Underlay Layer Properties

Parameter Description
Name Lets you to rename the module.
Antialiasing Quality

Smoothness setting applied to Overlay art layer. Choose from Low (no antialiasing), Medium Low, Medium and High (extensive antialiasing). The higher the quality of the chosen setting, the greater the amount of antialiasing that is applied. Higher quality images require more time to render and more memory from your system.

Antialiasing Exponent

Controls the amount of area around the Overlay art layer edges that is used in the antialiasing process. A higher value uses less area, resulting in sharper edges, while a lower value uses more area, resulting in softer edges. If the Antialiasing Quality value is set to Low (no antialiasing), this value is ignored.
