a pair of shaders to control interactively from within maya your framebuffers, store and write them out directly to img files.

*first collect the infos you need into separate buffers.

*then setup the buffer_write to write out the buffers to separate img files.

you can also 'break up' your scene lighting in different buffers and then recompose the whole after...
you'll just need a shader which has a way to link lights from its interface like the standard mib_illumin.

the up left and right are occlusion and specular buffers.
down left spot light with shadow.. right point'ambient' light.

great !

It's maybe asking a lot, but can you release the source code, or just the part that output the buffer to files ?

I think we need to start building a giant marble statue of Francesca so we can praise her greatness all day long!

Great work as always!!

Wow it works great!! I'm amazed at how you can render out 7 framebuffers at once at the normal speed of 1 fully composited frame, framebuffers are great!

Two tiny questions though:

1. I guessed that you plug a material into the 'render buffer' slot just so you can see it in the render view window, but it doesn't get saved out? At least it didn't for me. Or is that what the 'skip renderregion' control does?

2. Is there the possibility of making it so that the outputted files are named whatever you called them in the store shader instead of user1 etc? Like .specular.0.iff? Sorry, I'm sure you've already thought of that.
