View Full Version : DOF Pass from Maya to Nuke

04-10-2010, 08:10 AM
Okay guys,

age old question popping up again. I rendered out the scene in Maya2010 using OpenEXR with one of the channels containing a depth pass.

The scene is a little complicated as the camera pans around the subject matter, which means I can't break up the scene into layers and blur them seperately and will definitely need to use the zBlur function in Nuke.

Unfortunately, the areas where there is a strong change in depth seems to cause this artifact. Am I doing this wrong?

Would using a shader projection solve this issue?

i assumed you used maya mental ray's pass system.

how come your depth pass is not greyscale?

check the occlusion checkbox. it helps to reduce the edge artifacts.
