Join Alan Demafiles for an in-depth discussion in this video What are render passes?, part of After Effects CC 2018: VFX Essential Training.
- What are render passes?…In visual effects, we'll oftentimes…want to combine 3D elements into our shots.…Because rendering 3D can be a time expensive endeavor,…a shot is better served if the look and polish…of the 3D elements is decided on in the compositing phase,…rather than in one 3D render.…To help facilitate this, 3D artists will render…what is known as multi-passes or render passes.…These render passes separate the components…of a 3D element into individual files.…These files might include information like…the separated shadows or isolated reflections of objects.…
The idea is that with all the surface qualities…of the 3D elements separated, a compositor can then…piece them back together with a greater degree of control…over art direction than in 3D.…In the following movies, we'll see how we can combine…live action footage with multi-pass 3D elements.…
