Example text

If a countermatte was made with a gap, then this fall off was replicated and the two soft edges falling off to 50 percent in the penumbra of the matte shadow combined to make a blended 100% exposure. Blending a matte this way can be thought of as creating a mini-dissolve within the blend of the two pictures. If the gap is too big, the two exposures will overlap and create a bright superimposition, resulting in a “white” matte line. If the gap is too small or overlapping, there will be no exposure between the two exposures, resulting in a “black” matte line.
