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.
- [Instructor] In the previous movie,…we looked at the common render settings you'd need…to turn on in order to get an image out of Cinema 4D.…But if you'd like a bit more control over the image?…Well, you can turn to multipass compositing.…Let's have a look at how we set it up.…We'll come into our render settings.…And we can just enable multipass.…And you'll see in the Save tab,…now we have a multipass image save field.…So, to add multipass, is just come here…and press the Multi-Pass button.…
I like to add an RGBA image so I have the clean flat image.…But then we can add other passes…as well which make up the image.…So it diffuses the color and a good tip is…to actually check your materials come in…and see which ones have what channels turned on.…Because then we can identify the…different passes we need to enable.…So we've got Reflectance on in this one.…So we can make sure that we have reflections turned on.…I like to cast in shadows so we need a shadow pass.…
We can also enable Specular cause some materials…
Here, learn key foundational concepts, such as spline modeling, lighting, and materials, which are crucial to understanding exactly how this 3D application functions. Instructor Andy Needham covers practical techniques for extruding shapes; working with MoGraph tools such as Cloners and Effectors; and adding lighting and camera views for fully realized 3D motion graphics. Plus, find out how to integrate assets from Adobe Illustrator, composite multipass renders with the After Effects and C4D workflow, and use the Takes System to try different materials and settings and export your projects in the exact sizes and resolutions you need.
