Hi all
You know what?
I've uploaded a new Quartz composition to the BeLight Community website!
Yes, a 6th I've named "Layers" as it adds a second layer to Image Tricks 3.
You may:
- adjust opacity of each layer
- select and apply a blend mode
- invert layers order
- select way the second layer content is render (tile, fill, fit or stretch)

Default settings:

Once installed, you'll find this "Layers" Quartz composition in Image Tricks 3 "Utility" category.
Caution: not compatible with 10.4 (sorry for that).
Hope that you'll find this useful.

Hi all
I've updated (yes, one more time ;^)) this "Layers" Quartz composition, making it cleaner and clever designed (trust me! ;^)).
Here's the way default settings look now:

From an end-user point of view, the main differences are in control labels but "under the hood", this is another story.
The more I use Quartz Composer the more I learn about Quartz composition and the more I love it! :^)

About "Layers":
- it is normal that inverting layers order doesn't make any difference with some blend modes (say Screen and Multiply ones…). This is not a bug but the normal way these blend modes work.

Hi all
I've uploaded a new version of the "Layers" Quartz composition!
New features in this version 2.0 are:
- move the second layer content
- rotate the second layer content
- scale the second layer content
- it's now possible to display the second layer content to its normal size (at last! ;^))
Bug fixes:
- screen blend mode was wrongly used (the same image was sent to the two inputs (image/background image))
New behaviors:
- the control point used to move the second layer content is now the center of this content (in previous version, this was the origins (bottom left corner) of the layer content)
- multiply has been replaced by multiply blend mode
New controls:
