Parent Child Compositing
on Apr 19, 2005 at 9:35:27 am

This may be a silly question for some of you experts, but OK, I will ask it anyway...

For video editing I work with Sony Vegas, and I love the parent-child compositing technique. I want to do something similar with still images in Photoshop. I see all the possibilities with layers in Photoshop, but I can't find a way to make a parent-child composite. Can anyone shed some light into my darkness?

For those who are not familiar with the term: in parent-child compositing two images (A and B) are mixed by way of a third image (C), which is a greyscale image. A white pixel in C means image A is visible, a black pixel in C means image B is visible. A grey pixel in C determines a mix of image A and B. This is in essense what I want with my stills.

Any help is very welcome. Thanks.
