Hi,

is there a way getting out of Lightwave a ObjectID nand SurfaceID pass
without the use of the PSD exporter or RPF exporter.
I would need a .exr or . tif or a similar common format.

Thanks a lot

Tom

You can try Dpont's image filter together with TrueArt's Node Library Extended Item Info.. and put ItemID in some image filter channel..
I don't think so there is a way to take SurfaceID at the moment using nodes..

hi,
thanks for the tip....
hmmm, that's so complicated, I don't understand why there isn't a functional method for normal export buffers, the same also for a simple occlusion pass........

anyway, let's hope for 10
