New website up
After a long time working with my own custom joomla version, I decided its time to give it a slight overall
(Especially for working with bigger resolutions

Please be aware that some old stuff is still missing until
I shift all stuff to the new server








     


Pretty sure some others have implmented something similar, but it was kinda fun building up something myself.


The problem with the standard overlay blend mode is the screen blending part of the equation wich
can result in some illegal pixels when using it in combination with hdri data.

Since it its a hit and miss you usually avoid overlay when dealing with high dynamic range content.

This node uses a add instead of the screen function.

So basically it does this:

if fg <0.5
    result = bg* 2.0* fg
else
    if (fg < 1.0)
        result = bg + (((fg -0.5)*2.0) * fg)
    else
        result = bg +fg


Another experimental option to shift the midpoint (0.5) has been added. not sure if there is any use for it. But since its easy to implement I see no reason why I should not.

And since its fun to do I also added a backdrop function split so the blending is divided by the background value instead of the foreground.
Got some trippy results here, so I'm not sure if there is a real world usage to this

and sorry for the name, but the alternatives
hoverlay
hdrlayover
overlord
didn't sound fitting.

maybe overadd ?
