View Full Version : Z-depth not work, how I wrong?
What is it you're trying to do with the AddChannels node?
I think what you actually want to be using is the Shuffle node (or ShuffleCopy if you want to pull the channels into a different image stream)
I have no idea how my post ended up above yours there... Mine was meant to be the reply!

I searched different tutorial about use of zdpeth channel on nuke but without result.
Here a picture of my problem. I rendered my sequence in 2 different tipe, directly on *.exr format (with alpha-zpedth and velocity) and simply in a sequence with different channel...diffuse,reflection,zpedth,velocity etc etc...
In both case when I use the "Zblur" on nuke I see only one plane of 3. And if I see the zdepth channel directly in viewer is completly black! This is that I use the .exr file is I use the "addchannel" to add my zdepth sequence to zdepth layer in nuke.
How you see in picture, on the left side I have the simple zdepth sequence, and on the right the zdepth view...black!! :D

AH ok. I need the shuffle and not the add channel ? ok I try
The AddChannel node is for adding in new channels with a constant value (0 in your case here). The Shuffle node is for rearranging what channel data in in which channel, which is what you want.

Thanks Hugh ... now t's work ! thanks
the green plane in zblur not see corerctly..but I suppose is a problem of my zdepth output from max.

Hugh...another question...and for velocity pass? same procedure? beacuase I try, but if I choose motion on shufflecopy I have only uv coordinate but my velocity pass is a rgb...with 3coordinate..or not?
Most of the time when you're applying your motion blur in comp, you're only applying 2D motion blur (X and Y) and ignoring the Z component. It really depends on how you're going to be actually working with the motion pass.
