2.8 Blending

Multiple projectors are often used to create a seamless video image on a Projection Surface. For calibrating multiple projectors TACHYON features automatic edge blending, a process through which the projected images are altered to seamlessly blend into one another.
TACHYON automatically calculates Blending masks on load of the project. The only action a user can take is to recalculate the blending (after a calibration change for example) (once the Calibration process is complete Blending masks are saved and applied to the video outputs)
