Composite

public final class AlphaComposite
extends Object
implements Composite

This AlphaComposite class implements the basic alpha compositing rules for combining source and destination pixels to achieve blending and transparency effects with graphics and images. The rules implemented by this class are a subset of the Porter-Duff rules described in T. Porter and T. Duff, "Compositing Digital Images", SIGGRAPH 84, 253-259.

If any input does not have an alpha channel, an alpha value of 1.0, which is completely opaque, is assumed for all pixels. A constant alpha value can also be specified to be multiplied with the alpha value of the source pixels.

The following abbreviations are used in the description of the rules:

The color and alpha components produced by the compositing operation are calculated as follows:

 	Cd = Cs*Fs + Cd*Fd
 	Ad = As*Fs + Ad*Fd
where Fs and Fd are specified by each rule. The above equations assume that both source and destination pixels have the color components premultiplied by the alpha component. Similarly, the equations expressed in the definitions of compositing rules below assume premultiplied alpha.

For performance reasons, it is preferrable that Rasters passed to the compose method of a CompositeContext object created by the AlphaComposite class have premultiplied data. If either source or destination Rasters are not premultiplied, however, appropriate conversions are performed before and after the compositing operation.

The alpha resulting from the compositing operation is stored in the destination if the destination has an alpha channel. Otherwise, the resulting color is divided by the resulting alpha before being stored in the destination and the alpha is discarded. If the alpha value is 0.0, the color values are set to 0.0.

Field Detail

CLEAR

public static final int CLEAR
Porter-Duff Clear rule. Both the color and the alpha of the destination are cleared. Neither the source nor the destination is used as input.

Fs = 0 and Fd = 0, thus:

 	Cd = 0
 	Ad = 0

SRC

public static final int SRC
Porter-Duff Source rule. The source is copied to the destination. The destination is not used as input.

Fs = 1 and Fd = 0, thus:

 	Cd = Cs
 	Ad = As

SRC_OVER

public static final int SRC_OVER
Porter-Duff Source Over Destination rule. The source is composited over the destination.

Fs = 1 and Fd = (1-As), thus:

 	Cd = Cs + Cd*(1-As)
 	Ad = As + Ad*(1-As)

DST_OVER

public static final int DST_OVER
Porter-Duff Destination Over Source rule. The destination is composited over the source and the result replaces the destination.

Fs = (1-Ad) and Fd = 1, thus:

 	Cd = Cs*(1-Ad) + Cd
 	Ad = As*(1-Ad) + Ad

SRC_IN

public static final int SRC_IN
Porter-Duff Source In Destination rule. The part of the source lying inside of the destination replaces the destination.

Fs = Ad and Fd = 0, thus:

 	Cd = Cs*Ad
 	Ad = As*Ad

DST_IN

public static final int DST_IN
Porter-Duff Destination In Source rule. The part of the destination lying inside of the source replaces the destination.

Fs = 0 and Fd = As, thus:

 	Cd = Cd*As
 	Ad = Ad*As

SRC_OUT

public static final int SRC_OUT
Porter-Duff Source Held Out By Destination rule. The part of the source lying outside of the destination replaces the destination.

Fs = (1-Ad) and Fd = 0, thus:

 	Cd = Cs*(1-Ad)
 	Ad = As*(1-Ad)

DST_OUT

public static final int DST_OUT
Porter-Duff Destination Held Out By Source rule. The part of the destination lying outside of the source replaces the destination.

Fs = 0 and Fd = (1-As), thus:

 	Cd = Cd*(1-As)
 	Ad = Ad*(1-As)
