  3. Connect an image output into the image input in the Compute Gradient node.

  4. Adjust the attributes of the node.


image An image of VALUE color mode.

Note. If the input image is not of VALUE color mode, it is converted to value color mode using the default settings.


gradient_x An image of VALUE color mode with the rate of change in x.

gradient_y An image of VALUE color mode with the rate of change in y.
