Join Joel Bradley for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a custom matte pass, part of 3ds Max: Rendering for Composites.
- With our elements in place,…and with their individual parameters set up…according to the needs of our current scene,…time in this exercise to finalize their setup,…and to create a custom matte pass…using State Sets functionality.…To do this we will need to add a second State to our scene,…and then we name the first elements…and the second Custom_Matte.…As the matte status's by far and away the easiest to set up,…let's work on that first by making it active,…and then in the Render Elements tab…disabling all elements for it.…
We also need to create our Matte material,…so let's open up the Material Editor using the M key,…and as we won't be using any particular…mental ray functionality in this pass,…we can simply use the Standard material here,…So let's right click to create a new work area tab,…call it Matte_Materials and then drag out…two new Standard materials with which we can work.…We can double to access the parameters farther first,…and name it Red_Mask.…
And then we will click the second,…and give it the very descriptive name of Black.…
