Ah, those tools… This is an example video I made from the demo of Cinema.
It’s a simple test render of alot of stuff put on a cube I made.
The example I have here is that after the entire render has run, which is quite fast like 20 secs or less. I have what is a string of passes that create the final image. On turning them off and on you get to see how an image is created and you tend to see how you can make changes or discover somm really neat compositions all by just swapping layers…
This is the stuff I have been trying countlessly to get CVS crew to create. It’s a pro tool but it’s a MAJOR tool that is foolishly being ignored. Despite the render pipeline recode.
So, the next big project is, can we fake this in a simi automated way ? Maybe python?
Like documeted render hacks with setting up lights in layers and settings that mimic and break up the outputs of teh render images.
Or is this hopeless? I am sure it has been a breaking point for a lot of animation houses or projects.
