I am having trouble I want to render some 3d text. I want to export it to use in paintshop pro, but I have no way of getting the finished text to render without the grey backround. It is such a hassle to try remove it and if I do the result is never up to standard. Does anyone know how to render without having the grey backround just the rendered object? or any other alternative way?
Turn on alpha channel in the output image. If you are using Cycles, you also need to turn on “transparent” in the film panel. For LuxRender, there’s a similar switch in the camera panel (“enable alpha channel”). Don’t know any steps for other renderers off the top of my head.
