Blend modes for sources

I searched around the web and these forums a bit but couldn't find any mentions of this. Seems like something that might've been mentioned or requested before, but I don't see anything.

For anyone who uses Photoshop, blend modes will probably be familiar. The wikipedia page for it explains it nicely: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blend_modes

Browsers have also started supporting this through CSS.

My question is, would it be possible to have similar thing with Sources in OBS?
They tend to be extremely useful for blending images over the videos.

Any thoughts?
 
Nice feature but why would you actually use this? This enhances loading time of websites and has no benefits for the user. Only a web editor who is too lazy to open Photoshop could spare some seconds by using these CSS blend modes, but in my opinion the positive effects don't make up for the negative effects. The user should load the website as quick as possible and the developer should make it that way.

We do have this available as a filter, though it's limited to images. It would definitely be unusual/uncommon to do this in real time with actual sources, though I might take a look at adding these sort of options just for fun later on in time.

Sorry for necroposting, but has there been any work done in this direction? Blend modes still only applies to images and not sources. Can this be done in some other way, with shaders maybe? Ive also found blend states functions in the libobs API, but i'd prefer not to write my own plugin if possible.

Sorry to necro the necro, but I could really take advantage of this as well. I've done some testing and can apply an image with a blend filter on top of any source, but not properly like you would find in Photoshop with sources blending to the rest of the content in the preview window. CustomPhase, have you worked on this at all? Would you like to try to figure this out together?

Same... video blend modes for sources would be VERY useful for a lot of streamers, myself included. I specifically just want an additive/screen and multiply so I can have video effects that blend with my stream for specific events. Are there any plugins that address this? How has this thread gone for years without action? I don't expect a reply given the last few years worth of posts were never responded to.... Times like this make me feel like OBS is dead.
