RPRv2.0.85 Inability to Render a Transparent Background for Composition in External Editors

Jump to solution

There is currently no way to render a 3D scene with RPRv2.0.85 with a transparent background so that the resulting image may be composited in an external editor or used in other workflows (e.g. motion graphics, web design or desktop publishing).

Is this feature coming to a future release?

Actually using the Opacity AOV was enough. It's not very user friendly as there is seemingly no way to save all of the AOVs you select out as a layered file or as individual files at once (more a Blender failing I guess than RPR).

Opacity AOV:

Combined pass (250s):

Photoshop composition using the above files:

It's not a bug then!

Until you need other AOVs as well and once you select so many RPR crashes but I think that's also a known issue.

Thank you, it works.

Actually I take the above back.  You should be able to use the background AOV though.  Also the opacity aov should be clear for the background.

Using Aovs is not artist friendly at all. It would be great to get the transparent button working like it normally does in blender. Cannot recommend using Pro Renderer to my team until it works

Remove the background with one click, leaving a transparent image background to download as a png with our online photo editor.
