Hello, Blender Friends.
I’m quite certain I’ve seen a Collections proposal in RightClickSelect which adequately accounts for visually tagging layers (Exclude, Indirect Only, Holdout, Mask) to create custom render passes.
However, I can’t find it.
More importantly, I’d like to know if this going to implemented for the 2.80 final release, because the rendering toolset in 2.80 is, frankly, completely unfinished without it.
2.79 used to do this nicely. The only (somewhat glaring) deficiency was the hard limit on number of layers.
Currently in 2.80, excluded layers can be visually identified since they appear with grayed out names, and the E / ALT+E keyboard shortcut is useful, too. However, the only way to determine if a layer is set to Holdout or Indirect Only is to right click on it and check the View Layer sub menu. Worst of all, there is absolutely no way to set a layer as a mask, afaik.
Does anyone have any information on this?
Can someone please link me to the proposal so I can track its progress?
