What I was asking, was an explanation of the formula, I would naively
expect something like:
main_alpha = (1-alpha) * main_alpha + alpha * overlay_alpha
like for the other components.
Now the equation I see is something along the lines of an obfuscated
main_alpha += (1-main_alpha) * overlay_alpha
Can you give explanation of it?
And patch updated (waiting feedback for the RGB path patch).
