Blend Mode

Blend methods may be applied to entire objects or to their individual parts as well as entire object groups. Behind each blend method lies a defined blend function. The blending takes place between the foreground color (CS = source color) and the background color (Cb = background color). The result is the result color (Cr). The variables cr , cb and cs describe the corresponding values for the colors Cr , Cb and Cs additively.
