What is compositing software?

Compositing software enables you to  combine visual elements from separate sources and unify them into a new visual element. The purpose of compositing is to either enhance the overall look and feel of a visual element, or to create an illusion that visual elements from multiple sources are in the same scene. The best compositing software will allow you to create truly breathtaking scenes that are out of this world.
