The feMerge filter allows filter effects to be applied concurrently instead of sequentially. This is achieved by other filters storing their output via the result attribute and then accessing it in a <feMergeNode> child.

Usage context

CategoriesFilter primitive element
Permitted contentAny number of the following elements, in any order:
<feMergeNode>
