2024-02-13 Compositor meeting notes


  • Omar Emara
  • Sergey Sharybin


  • Full-frame compositor is almost ready
    • The size inference for Levels node needs some work
      • Unfortunately, flags_.can_be_constant = true; trick does not wok.
      • Perhaps SetValueOperation can be used instead.
  • A topic of render border and compositor was raised:
    • Context: Render region ruins compositing for image input #118156
    • Current design is that both Compositor and Render respect the render region
    • If there is some unpredictable results going on, they need to be looked into
    • It is possible that in some workflows it is desirable that render region only affects render, but not compositor. This can be looked into again after the current compositor projects are wrapped up.
  • Omar will help with the release notes to include some conrete examples of differences on the user level for after the full-frame switch.
  • The switch to full-frame implementation will happen soon after the meeting.
