Cryptomatte: A few steps to make it work. Really easy.
- Add the Cryptomatte Sub Pixel Filter to your render layer: Select the layer (Layer Editor) -> at the bottom in the Attribute Editor you can find the Sub Pixel Filters section. Add -> Cryptomatte
- Open the Cryptomatte filter (Click on the small arrow), and set the type to AOVs and Manifest
This way the Cryptomatte data will be stored as AOVs.
- Done. 🙂 Render the Image via the Render Manager
- Use as usual in NUKE with the help of the Cryptomatte node.
You can use the Cryptomatte plug-in in the non-commercial Nuke as well (it’s ideal for learning):
- Download the Cryptomatte plug-in.
- Unpack it
- Open Nuke’s plug-in init.py file (for exmple: Program Files\Nuke12.0v2\plugins\init.py)
- Paste this line at the end of the python script:
Change the path of course, make sure you using / instead of \
- Save the init.py file, restart Nuke.
