Not sure about you guys but one of the big limitations I feel with Freestyle is the lack of a render pass for it.
To isolate Freestyle lines in the Compositor one must create a whole new scene, duplicate everything, then tweak that scene so that only the lines get rendered. It’s really not practical. For Cycles we have access to many specific passes, but for Freestyle we don’t get even one.
Is this something we can hope to see in future versions?
Is it really difficult to code, is it on the to-do list once the funding is there, or is it just not considered a high priority?
BlenderNPR asked for feedback on ways to improve Freestyle a few years back and a Freestyle pass was among the requests, but it never came to be.
I got to thinking about it again because Freestyle just got some neat new features, but a render pass was not one of them. Just curious what the community’s perceptions are on this subject.
