EFX Render Elements Plugin Suite

Videos

Working with CG render passes is never simple. Any experienced compositor will tell you that with every step you encounter new challenges. They also know that in this workflow lies an enormous power - you can completely change your shot without re-rendering, or achieve the same look in less time.

This suite has workflow tools developed over many years that incorporate many tricks and solutions that help in everyday compositing tasks.

Feature highlights:

  • select objects based on ID, Velocity or ZDepth pass,
  • remove artifacts on the edges of objects that are common in render passes workflows,
  • fix the 1 pixel gap between objects and their shadows in the shadow pass,
  • blur a layer but without crossing the boundary between two objects.
  • composite two layers using their ZDepth passes as a guide,
  • project a layer onto a CG rendering so that it deforms nicely,
  • create a depth wipe through a scene from back to front or the other way.

    These plugins will let you make the most use of a ZDepth pass that you often render out from a 3d application. It's a pass that stores the information about the distance from camera for each pixel - there is really a lot you can do with this data.
