View Full Version : Z channel compositing in Shake

Helly everybody,

I wonder if anyone can suggest me a good Shake tutorial for compositing Z channel (rendered with Houdini), or even tell me some working ways for doing it .

Thank you,

The blimp tutorial that comes with shake in the manuals.

Why do you need another tutorial? The blimp one explains exactly what you need to know.

The only difference is Houdini's Z channel is different then maya's, so you need to find out where their Z data goes from. Maya's goes from 0 to -1, other apps go from 0 to distance from camera(clipping plane).
