I’ve only been using the compositor in Blender for a short time so I’m discovering new things all the time. One of the nodes I always use is the mix node, basicly everything comes together in this node so I’m curious about what the AlphaOver node offers over the Mix node?
What is the actual difference between the color -->Mix node and the color --> AlphaOver node. From my limited experience with the compositor the AlphaOver node is just a Mix node without the blending options. I have noticed some difference with blending alpha channels but thats it.
If anyone could give me an example of when to use the Mix node and when to use the AlphaOver node, in such a way that it is unwise to use one over the other.
