Working With Arnold Light AOVs in After Effects

3D Splanchnic shows how to create and export Light AOVs from Arnold Render to Adobe After Effects.

This new pair of tutorials from 3D Splanchnic shows how to build a composite using Light AOVs from Arnold in Maya to Adobe After Effects. Arnold’s light AOVs are easy to use and allow flexible control over your final images in “post,” like in Ae, Photoshop, or another compositor.

The tutorial shows how to export Lighting AOVs from Maya using the Arnold renderer and EXR files. It is a basic introduction to an instrumental technique that allows for editing in the composite.
