Combine Mode

Combine Mode

mult: The results of all the filters are multiplied together

max: The maximum result from all filters is used.This works best for grey scale light filters.

min: The minimum result from all filters is used.This works best for grey scale light filters.

screen: Similar to the max operation, but it combines gradients in a smoother way. This works best for grey scale light.

Light filters on a light are grouped by their combine mode. Light filters in the same group are executed together and combined by the combine mode.The groups are executed in this order (max, min, screen, and then mult) and are multiplied together, which means a filter that turns things black in the mult group will zero out all other filters.
