Composite Node


Composite Node.

The Composite node is where the actual output from the Compositor is connected to the renderer. This node is updated after each render, but also reflects changes in the node tree (provided at least one finished input node is connected).


Connecting a node to the Composite node will output the result of the prior tree of that node to the Compositor.
