Usage guide for Compositing with Carbon Basic
Image Elements

The most basic and useful element is an image. This can be a still, or motion video. All can be resized, rotated, squeezed, stretched, cropped, zoomed, panned, flipped, faded, color processed, and masked. All the parameters controlling these operations can have values that change with time for motion compositing.
