Multipass rendering provides the ultimate level of control when compositing. In this video, learn what passes you would need to output and how to use tokens for naming files and which camera settings to change to create a depth pass in CINEMA 4D.
- [Narrator] So you've had a look…at some of the common render settings…to get an image out of Cinema 4D,…but what about when you want to do…multi-pass compositing?…Let's have a look at what we'd need to do,…and change, to set that up.…We'll come into our Render Settings,…and the first thing we need to do…is make sure we have Multi-Pass on.…While we're in this tab, we can choose Shadow Correction…and that will just kind of smooth out…any aliasing and lines caused by the anti-aliasing.…
We can next come over to our Multi-Pass options…and kind of want to think about…what of these passes we need to include.…I like to have an RGBA image…just so I've got the flat image,…and a good tip is to look at your materials,…and see what channels you have on,…and that gives you a big hint…as to what passes you'll need.…So the color is Diffuse,…and we have the Reflection on as well,…so we'll choose Reflection.…
We've got lights which are casting shadows,…so we'll have a Shadow pass as well.…And in terms of color channels, I think that's all we have.…
