I am hoping this has not been discussed before and is useful to some of the community. I have been using so called color ID passes from 3d artists and decided it was about time I streamlined my work methods. From here I made a simple animation preset that gives you a slider which moves through the various matte passes. Normally being Red, Green, Blue, Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow.
I have a link to download the preset on my site and a video tutorial that discusses how you might extract these mattes, and a demonstration of the preset. Might be useful to people learning the program and are looking for a few tips and a way to increase there productivity.
Feel free to comment on my blog, and I hope this is of some use to the community
