hello
there is a stupid question, but is it possible to mix occlusion pass and final image in on pass.
when whe render an image in interpolated gi , some time somes details disappears, whe can try to render an occlusion pass and mix with the final render in photoshop for example.
but is this possible in lightwave ?? i don't mean to apply at eachs surface an occlusion shader, but apply it to the render image.
i think it would be great, because whe can try to render image with a low gi setting wihout lost the finest details of geometries.

sorry for my english

You could try with

Look for the extra buffer nodes.

i've finaly found a solution, i think lol, i have to go deeper, but i must be in the right way.

i've apply a " multiply " in the blending fo the mixer tool.

Thats correct.Mixer tool works like photoshop's blending modes.
So multiply is correct.
