Quote from: j meyer on April 12, 2014, 01:14:54 pmThe one that bugs me most is the lack of a separate Shadows Render Element,which is a pretty crucial thing in compositing.At least it is a standard pass inother renderers and in every workflow I am familiar with.Why is that? Where's the advantage,I don't get it?In case I'm just too dense to find it,please help me out.
QuoteAnother thing is the "exr chauvinism" ,personally I'd like to be able to decide for myself,if I want to use exr or tif or whatever.Especially since I don't have anyimage editor that can deal with 16 or 32bit hdr images.Fortunately the exr plug-in for Photoshop,provided by ILM,worked for PShopElementsalso and thus saved my day.
QuoteConnected to this,but minor are the punctuation marks (dots,periods whateveryou call them) in the titles,which can cause problems on loading the pics,becausesometimes the first dot in the title makes a program think the format name starts there and so results in an unknown format message for example.Or,if you don't change the default setting for the extra output images to exr,justbecause you don't know about that initially,you end up with .bmp.exr and of courseit won't open correctly.
QuoteAnd in case of making different passes from one render layer accidentally,insteadof using 2 or more layers the extra images get overwritten without warning,so you loose any extra output you might have rendered before.Once you know that it'sof course no problem anymore.
QuoteShouldn't cast shadows and other rays be treated as separate features,too?
