Clients and creative directors will change their minds about how a shot should look, and sometimes they will do that after the rendering has been completed. In this video, learn about render element tools that can help you relight a shot to a certain extent should it at any point be required.
- The Zed or Z depth Render Element in V-Ray assigns … and then renders a grayscale value … for every pixel in the image based on an object's distance … from the rendering camera in the scene. … To take a look at how this shows up inside the V-Ray frame … before window, let's add the ZED depth option … to the Render Elements list, … inside the Render set of dialogue. … And then take a render, … now the grayscale values that we see as we switch over … to looking at the ZED depth pass in the Channel Dropdown, … aren't assigned to specific distances in the seams … or 50% gray isn't assigned to points that are 50 meters … from the camera for instance, … because the values are in fact assigned according … to where they sit in relation to the rendering camera … and the min and max settings on the Render Element itself … with pixels at the min value, starting out as pure white … and pixels at the far point rendering as pure black, … everything in between this of course, … being assigned a progressive grayscale value …
