|Items in CAPS are 0/1 switches or switches with more options than 0/1.|
Maximum scans on a pixel-by-pixel basis. At each pixel, the surrounding eight pixels are scanned for a maximum value of a particular type (more below). The color of the maximum pixel is then put in place of that pixel. The above maximum was taken based on luma.
These radio buttons allow you to choose the criteria by which the maximum is determined. Choosing the red, for example, will compare each surrounding pixel by their red value. The surrounding pixel with the highest red value will hold the values for replacement. These pixels can be compared by:
Affect Only Alpha
This option is available to you only when the operator is set to compare based on alpha. If this box is checked, only the alpha channel of the image will be changed. If this box is unchecked, red green and blue information will also be replaced.
This option is available to you only when the operator is not set to compare based on alpha. If this box is checked, the alpha information will be changed on replacement. If this box is not checked, the alpha channel of the image will not be changed.
Some of the controls have a Trend button next to them. These trend buttons allow you to set variables over a series of frames. Each frame of any animation may be thought of as a slice of time. The trends allow you to alter some, all, or none of the variables for a particular time slice. Trend graphs have equidistantly spaced vertical lines. For animations under 100 frames in length, each of these lines represents a frame in the animation. The number of frames in any one sequence can be altered using the Sequence controls item from the Timeline pull down menu. Animation lengths of 100 - 999 frames will be represented with a vertical bar being 10 frames, and animation length greater than 1000 frames will have a vertical bar for every 100 frames.
