I’m a noobie here so please be gently. I’ve been getting into blender for about 5 months now and I’m finding it to be an amazing piece of software that i struggle to believe is free. Hats off to the guys that put it together and continue to do so.
Anyway my question. I’ve created a model in cycles which i would like to animate rising up through a pair of sliding doors. I’ve done the camera track and my model appears in the video. As i only want to see the sliding doors and the model as it rises up through them I’ve placed them so that the ground plane hides what i don’t want to see.
The trouble is that when I render the image the ground plane outline can be just seen, like a slightly dark piece of glass over the background video. I tried expanding the ground plan to cover the whole image and it, as expected, darkened the whole background video.
Please see attached picture for example.
Is there a setting that i need to tick? Or is there a better way to mask an area i don’t want to show in the render?
Any ideas, suggestions, help, would be gratefully appreciated.
