I was thinking about making something (addon, op) that produces BW Depth maps or full color maps from border selection into packed/file maps. Its supposed to be one click solution or near that. If anyone has any suggestions I would be glad to hear them.
High level operation graph:
Create tmp ortho/persp (based on current mode) cam and align to view->Render from this camera only depth pass->Pack the image->Create new brush texture from it
- Fit to range (for maximizing contrast)
- Pack (Off/On)
- Create new brush with texture auto assigned?
I guess first step would be to see if everything needed is exposed via Py API. I’ll get back with results.
