Composite like combined image


I’m just curious how images should be composited so it replicate combined image (single pass rendered).
If there is diffuse pass, specular pass, shadow pass, reflection pass and AO pass.

AO seems to add some “GI like” light into final render so how it should be blended when compositing?


sorry no one had answered. I found a youtube video on the subject, but can’t find it…

anyway, you multiply the AO pass with the rest.

Doesn’t it depend on whether you have “add”, “subtract”, or “both” selected in the AO settings?

I’ve made a little tutorial about it, cheers!

And there is the video I found… Guess it wasn’t youtube.
