Hi, i cant find a way of hiding the background/environment image in a render. I want to use the image for reflection and refraction but not see it in my render. Is this possible?
Sorry all worked it out… set background color and still use hdr files for reflection and refraction - got it
I save my renders as PNG, the background is then transparent and you can replace it in Photoshop with whatever background you like.
EDIT: I’m sorry, my experience is based on vRay. I didn’t check category
I find that is the best way to merge renderings together with background images also. Using the Photoshop method also allows some post processing. I like to add some noise and blur the rendering a little so the rendering matches the inherent noise in the background image.
Ahh ok I knew this was an option but wasn’t sure it was preferable. You would then lose the ability to adjust lighting levels on the different channels… Or is there a clever way of exporting images to retain this information … Maybe as layers or something similar?
