It's a fun topic to think about and very cleverly designed by the chaps at Psyop.

Looks great, thanks for all the hard work on this!

Also, is Cryptomatte support (currently) the only difference between exrTrader and exrTrader Pro? It wasn't entirely clear at the product page.

Oh, and the link in post #2 above to "https://www.db-w.com/23-frontpage/27...der-pro-2018-1" doesn't appear to work.

Currently the support for Cryptomatte is the only difference, I'll see if I can make that more clear. Basically, exrTrader Pro = exrTrader + Cryptomatte

The main reason is that exrTrader itself is designed to export the buffers created by LW. exrTrader Pro goes one step further, actually creating buffers that LW doesn't - in this case via a helper Pixel Filter that intercepts data computed by LW storing and processing it separately.


Oh, and the link in post #2 above to "https://www.db-w.com/23-frontpage/27...der-pro-2018-1" doesn't appear to work.

I had to split up the original post due to two videos being present and then it seems to just have pasted the shortened link. I don't think I can still edit it. :(

Cheers,

Whoa! Fantastic update Michael.

Can't wait to get home so I can download and install it tonight. I'm very curious to see how CryptoMatte differs from just material/object ID in Fusion...from a quick glance at the video, setting up seems simpler and easier.

I'm guessing this is a paid upgrade to Pro? I'll have to check what I have tonight. I don't think I have Pro but will be happy to upgrade if I don't.

Also, thank you for continuing to support LightWave.

It's very exciting to see so much innovative third-party development going on for LightWave again.

Yes, the upgrade to Pro is paid. And since the Pro version has only been available since Monday, you won't have a license.

You can also check out out using the demo version of exrTrader, which has Cryptomatte unlocked as well.

And you're welcome, Cryptomatte has been a fun ride and exrTrader is the first commercial plugin supporting it.

Cheers,
Mike

Huzza ! Great update and thank you for your hard work on the LW front db&w folks.
Silly question - how do I update from the old exrTrader (I don't have the 2018 version as far as I know) to 2018 Pro?

Cheers,
Alan K.

Thanks Alan. :)

Not silly at all actually. To be frank, we don't have a straight upgrade path set-up at the moment. Shoot us a mail and we will.
