The Pixelate effect lets you apply a mosaic effect to an image (and its matte) based on the matte you supply. Pixelation makes the image look like it is made up of square tiles.

There are two input ports on the Pixelate node:

The left port receives the matte
The right port receives the image

Pixelate Properties

Parameter Description
Name Lets you rename the node.

Lets you control the amount the image is pixelated. You can attach the Factor value to a function curve to change the value over time.

Antialiasing Exponent

Controls the amount of area around the 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.
