How to Create ID Mattes With Render Setup in Maya

Reza Sarkamari shows how to create ID Mattes using Maya’s Render Setup.

Maya’s Render Setup was a welcome change from the older render layers. It’s ultimately more powerful and allows you virtually unrestricted ways to set up renders, passes, and work with AOVs.

This new tutorial from Reza Sarkamari walks us through how you can use Render Setup to create ID mattes for compositing. Creating ID mattes to rendered objects and outputting them can be helpful in later compositing because this allows compositors to isolate things.

Reza covers how to use Render Setup to create fast and easy ID mattes and create a template so it can be used time and again without creating them from scratch.
