Patchwork 3D Enterprise 2021.1 X5

Post-Processing (Editor)

Available in: Matter: Editors > Post-Processing

Post-Processing edit_postprocess_1.png is an editor used to create, enable/disable, combine, program and assign 2D post-processing effects interactively. It creates and modifies a blend of effects, their properties, and the way they are combined.

Once post-processing blend is assigned to the Patchwork 3D scene, viewing of the created effects is instantaneous; adjustment of the various effects is done in real time.




Start point for assignment by drag-and-drop.


Assignment of a post-process is also possible from Matter sidebar's post-processing library. See Post-Processing Library for more information.


Allows an post-processing blend to be selected with a click on the viewport in which it is active.


Creates a new post-processing blend.


Duplicates the active post-processing blend.

The text field is for renaming the active post-processing blend.

In the Post-Processing Effects box:




This toggle button is for enabling/disabling a specified post-processing effect. This icon indicates that the effect is enabled.


This icon indicates that the effect is disabled.


The New effect button is for adding a new effect to the post-processing currently being edited. Many effects are available. See the chapter Post-Processing Effects.


The Solo effect toggle button is for momentarily isolating the selected effect. A green frame around the 3D view indicates that only the isolated effect is displayed.


The Delete effect button is for deleting the selected effect from the list of post-processing effects in the blend being edited.

Effect properties zone

The effect properties frame is for precisely defining the various parameters contained in a post-process, by assigning precise numerical value.


For post-processing that require settings on the size of the effect, it is possible to adjust the effect relative to the size of the image with % width, % height, and % default parameters. % default uses height or width based on the default orientation of the current camera.
