To work with this filter, at least two images are needed that have to be same sized.

Depth Map

Overmap

Creates soft transitions between images.

Offset

Defines the darkness value that will be applied to sources maps.

Scale 1, Scale 2

Same as above but more sensitive and applied to each map separatly.
