View Full Version : Multi pass render of scene objects to layers?

I see there is an image filter for exporting a layered psd file with things like shadows and specularity, etc on different layers. I use Lightwave for print illustration and what I'm looking for is a way to render each object in a scene to a different layer in a psd file. Truespace used to have a feature like this that worked great but I want to do this in Lightwave. Right now I have to do multi renders and "turn on/off" each object one by one. Real pain.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yes,. the PSD image filter.

I use Lightwave for print illustration and what I'm looking for is a way to render each object in a scene to a different layer in a psd file.

Now that's a different thing, and no, there isn't.

However, there's two plugins that would help:
LWPassport (http://www.lwpassport.com/) and Janus (http://janus.faulknermano.com/)
