Here's something from me which I think will be useful for other people. Quick render selected object(s) on pure background color without mess renderer settings & while keep last rendered VFB intact.
- Render selected object(s) on desired size & background color
- Keep renderer settings & last rendered VFB intact
- Each "shot" comes in a new virtual slot which gives you freedom to
- work with multiple slots which is a bonus when comparing images.
We all know that Max Render Selected mod past new rendered shot over last rendered frame as background. I always wondered why this option is designed to work like this. This is not real-time post-production compositing feature. It's designed to save time when our focus its work over an object(s) and to do this on flat background color is very clear and more useful.
