zdepth in 3delight

Hello Atom,
I am new to 3delight as i’ve been using m.ray for a long, long time. I was wounding if u have a moment to explain in the basic terms how to set up z depth that would give me optimal results in 3Dlight ? Any help would be much appreciated.
With Respect Dantes.

Hi Dantes, who is atom? apologies in answering your email so late
try this.

1) select in secondary Displays in 3delight renderpass – Display AOV – luminance depth
2) set the far clip plane close enough under the camera attributes to a suitable distance. maybe the distance of the furthest geometry.
……….. or
or use a 32bit z pass and extract the data you need in your compositing tool – you have much more control 🙂 – swag
