Hi there,

Is it possible to have the Fog 3D and Depth Matte effects use an alternate source for zdepth? As the one contained in the .rpf files I'm using is of course aliased. Which gives some jaggy edges. Would rendering out a fake depth pass with anti-aliasing fix the jaggies?

Thanks !

you can, but in between values may also give undesired can also try to render it out with doubled resolution and have AE scale it back to 50% thus removing some of the aliasing.

Just turn everything you don't need off, lights and such to speed up the rendering. It works too, I've done both...IMO no depth is perfect when done quickly in post.
