    Enjoy !
    Hi Oliver !

    ▄ber_Pass is ''more or less'' a LW ''Total Recall'' system if I grasp the concept correctly . . . ;-)

    So.
    Can I combine these different recorded states (passes) with buffer settings for rendering ?

    For example a BG or starpro plug-in rendering as a plain 16bit TIFF RGBA sequence for example as one set (pass)
    and a group of objects as layered OpenEXR files (depth, motion vectors, object ID, RGBA...) without BG /or starpro plug-in as another set ?!?
    Scene /Buffers -Outputs ... I guess
    EXR Trader possible ?

    And (a pass as) kind of general switch for DOF /motion blur for reference test renderings of a single frame output...
    Segment Pass Mode for Camera /DOF /Motion Blur (or Quick Set) ?

    Last question:
    Since the passes are stored independent of LW scene files they could be used on multiple scenes with similar setups and different animations ?
    Same objects and animated cameras, lights, objects . . . (Segment Mode again)


    Okay.
    I must decide next week to meet the deadline for the attractive special introductory price on ▄ber_Pass :-)

    Thanks for the universal approach !!!

    Yes.. all possible

    they are not independent of lw scene files... they are scene file specific.. the pass folder belongs to the scene. you could manually do what you are asking for, but you'd have to copy files manually, and automating that is not something on my radar currently.

    Hi Oliver !

    Thanks for the fast reply !

    I see.
    With a template scene and save scene as this this should work or does the pass folder have to be unique and not shared ?

    With lots of similar scenes passes and buffers should be consistant.
    I thought that is the idea of Pass Management. Not only within a single scene.
    Like Render Presets for Passes or Buffers or another OD Tool for that ?!? ;-)

    The idea of this tool is to "version" everything in your scene. The pass folder should be unique to the scene. However, lets say you had a scene setup with uberpass, and had all the "passes" as you wanted... and now, you had another scene, with the same objects (important) and wanted to load the passes from that previous scene. You could actually point the uberpass folder for this new scene to the OLD folder, and, selectively) via the segments option, restore what you want from the other "setups" passes (so that you wouldnt for example overwrite animations, etc) - again.. overall scene states are saved.

    You can not apply the pass settings to a completely different scene. Thats not what it was designed to do, and for "render settings, or buffers", you already have built in LW Presets. I would suggest the better way to work though, would be to just have your scene, and produce all your different scenes within that scene as "passes". I know the plugin is called "uberpass", but maybe dont take the pass to literal, its really so much more than that and not JUST that.

    hope that answers your question.

    Is there a bundle option to get ToolSet and UberPass?

    Sorry, no. I might do a "bundle" after the sale price is over, so that people dont have to do multiple transactions, but, the pricing will be the same as if you were to buy them individually.

    Hi Robert !

    Scene Presets are a part of it for sure.
    It is great that we can create presets for scene render buffers within Lightwave.
    That is a huge help.

    When I have to crank out lots of scenes with nearly the same setup this is about project management and render consistancy.
    Obviously I always need a BG layer and some FG layers for compositing.
    It is about a combination of a render pass and buffer settings.
    Sure - I can manually switch off parts of the scene and apply a buffer preset but I was hoping for a tool taking care of that also from scene to scene.
    Defining BG, FG parts and assigning a specific render setting.

    Hey Marcus,
    Just to be clear, I meant that Oliver's made a Scene Preset tool; this is what it sounds like you want.

    Just making sure you know the options might already be available or reminding myself of the capability.
    A lot of software purchased lately and trying to see if it can all work together with a minimum of crashes. UberPasses is offering a challenge: how to incorporate everything while finding out what's not gonna work nice.
    Colorida is being odd in this system, for example. More work to really know the problem.

    These tools will give you what you seek, I bet.

    Hm.. could you record a video of whats happening and send it to me ?.. I'd be curious myself. I dont have the plugin, so i cannot test it with it.
