Changing Composite Mode

By default, composite nodes have their mode set to As Bitmap. You can change the mode of a composite node via its layer properties. You can also change the mode of several composites between As Bitmap and Pass Through using the Set Properties for Many Layers dialog.

TIP If your project requires a lot of pass through composites, you can enable the Default Pass Through Composite preference. When this option is enabled, all new composite nodes you create will have their mode set to Pass Through by default. This option can be enabled in the Preferences dialog, in the General tab, in the Settings section.
