View Full Version : Purpose of mentalray file formats like .mt, .zt ?

03-10-2004, 01:47 PM
Hi there,

I was just wondering what these mental ray file formats in the image format drop down menu in the rendering options are for:

mentalray Color (.ct)
mentalray Alpha (.st)
mentalray Normal (.nt)
mentalray Motion (.mt)
mentalray Depth (.zt)
mentalray Tag (.tt)
mentalray Bit (.bit)
mentalray HDR (.cth)

Especially the depth, motion, normal and HDR formats sound interesting. But is there any compositing software that can process those formats, i.e. for postprocessing exact motion blur or DoF?

The manual wasn't very informative about this topic.

Thanks in advance for any help and information!
