View Full Version : z channel?

04 April 2003, 08:35 AM
Hi,I know that rla/rpf files have the z embedded,and maya iff too,but here's my question:
What if I want to use another sequence as my z channel?
let's say I have my sequence in tga and the same sequence in grayscales for the z depth,also in tga.
Will it work within combustion? how??

if you are trying for depth of field blur, you could use a compound blur, using the z depth map luminance as the source. Apart from that though, you may be S.O.L.
