I have posted a new Action video on the Smoke Learning Channel:
Autodesk Smoke: Action Render Outputs
In the previous videos, we covered creating render passes from Autodesk Maya. But did you know that the Action 3D compositor has the capability to output render passes as well?
This is a fantastic feature once you get to grips with it. You can output beauty passes, matte passes for selected objects, Z-depth passes to create depth of field effects, shadow passes to recomposite shadows after rendering and ambient occlusion passes to add an extra dimension to your composites. All of this in the compositing and finishing suite!
Please post your feedback and requests to the comments column.
Happy February and have a great weekend!
