Use a radius of 0 and MagickAdaptiveBlurImage() selects a suitable radius for you.

y

the row offset of the composited image.

MagickCompositeLayers

MagickCompositeLayers() composite the images in the source wand over the images in the destination wand in sequence, starting with the current image in both lists.

Each layer from the two image lists are composted together until the end of one of the image lists is reached. The offset of each composition is also adjusted to match the virtual canvas offsets of each layer. As such the given offset is relative to the virtual canvas, and not the actual image.

Composition uses given x and y offsets, as the 'origin' location of the source images virtual canvas (not the real image) allowing you to compose a list of 'layer images' into the destiantioni images. This makes it well sutiable for directly composing 'Clears Frame Animations' or 'Coaleased Animations' onto a static or other 'Coaleased Animation' destination image list. GIF disposal handling is not looked at.

Special case:- If one of the image sequences is the last image (just a single image remaining), that image is repeatally composed with all the images in the other image list. Either the source or destination lists may be the single image, for this situation.

In the case of a single destination image (or last image given), that image will ve cloned to match the number of images remaining in the source image list.

This is equivelent to the "-layer Composite" Shell API operator.

MagickDistortImage

MagickDistortImage() distorts an image using various distortion methods, by mapping color lookups of the source image to a new destination image usally of the same size as the source image, unless 'bestfit' is set to true.

If 'bestfit' is enabled, and distortion allows it, the destination image is adjusted to ensure the whole source 'image' will just fit within the final destination image, which will be sized and offset accordingly. Also in many cases the virtual offset of the source image will be taken into account in the mapping.

method

the method of image distortion.

ArcDistortion always ignores the source image offset, and always 'bestfit' the destination image with the top left corner offset relative to the polar mapping center.

Bilinear has no simple inverse mapping so it does not allow 'bestfit' style of image distortion.

Affine, Perspective, and Bilinear, do least squares fitting of the distortion when more than the minimum number of control point pairs are provided.

Perspective, and Bilinear, falls back to a Affine distortion when less that 4 control point pairs are provided. While Affine distortions let you use any number of control point pairs, that is Zero pairs is a no-Op (viewport only) distrotion, one pair is a translation and two pairs of control points do a scale-rotate-translate, without any shearing.

number_arguments

the number of arguments given for this distortion method.

arguments

the arguments for this distortion method.

bestfit

No numbers also means a 2 level (bitmap) dither will be applied to all channels, while a single number is the number of levels applied to each channel in sequence. More numbers will be applied in turn to each of the color channels.

For example: "o3x3,6" generates a 6 level posterization of the image with a ordered 3x3 diffused pixel dither being applied between each level. While checker,8,8,4 will produce a 332 colormaped image with only a single checkerboard hash pattern (50 grey) between each color level, to basically double the number of color levels with a bare minimim of dithering.
