Changelog:
4.2.16 - 4.2.18
* Added support for DWAB OpenEXR compression method. (highly compressing)
* For trackball-style camera controller, prevent zooming in too far to an object. This helps prevent the camera passing through objects.
* Fixed problem with object merging resulting in objectId() being the same for multiple objects.
* Added objectId() GPU support.
* Made posOS() work in bump shaders on the GPU.
* Fixed posOS() on CPU, was slightly wrong in bump shaders.
* Fixed problem where posOS() was incorrect due to object merging.
* Improved robustness and speed of motion blur.
* Fixed bump values being different based on object merging.
* Added normalOS() ISL function.
* Using bump-mapped shading normal in shaders where possible, otherwise using pre-bump shading normal.
* Added participating_media_lighting render channel, (equivalent to the current SSS channel), made SSS channel
be for participating media-scattered paths after transmission or refraction.

4.2.15
* Added beauty render channels - direct, indirect, specular, refraction, transmission, emission, sss.
* Added other render channels - normals, normals_pre_bump, position, depth, material_id, object_id, foreground.
* Added material mask and object mask render channels.
* Removed material id and depth pass from render mode options, as they are superseded by render channels now.
* Added a 'render channels' page to the render settings widget. Added checkboxes for the various render channels.
* Fixed issue that would cause unused memory allocations after a full scene realtime rebuild.
* Some improvements and speedups for ISL shaders.
* Fixed env map + sun/sky env emitter on GPU.
* Made the OpenGL preview engine use PBR.
* Some misc. CPU optimisations.
* Improved build time on some scenes.
* Improved precision on the GPU in some cases.

this looks awesome.
can you explain how to apply the render channels? they don't seem to do anything here...

[edit]
nvermind, I found the little dropdown menu above the render viewport. great!

Wow! So great!
Is it possible to render AOV without beauty pass? AOVs slow main render a bit (something like 2-3% on material preview, not sure how on more complicated scenes)? Or maybe set some kind of multiplier for AOV sampling, so when doing 24h rendering they just slowly refresh?

This is great!!

For exporting EXRs, could the option of embedding all passes into one multi-layered EXR be added? Really handy for compositing workflows.

Also, the position pass should be able to write negative values to EXR. Anything behind (0,0,0) is clamped, leading to some funny results :P

Yup this should be doable.

It seems that there shouldn't be anti-aliasing for the position channel.

See the attached image: we get false positions from the anti-aliased edges.

EDIT: This is a pointcloud generated from the beauty channel and position channel.

Maybe with option to disable for stupid photoshop exr filter compatibility (no multilayer exr support)

Depth channel is reversed (great and same as default vray https://docs.chaosgroup.com/display/VRA ... VRayZDepth) but has black background, maybe having white is better to indicate infinity for things like compositing fog on sky or fake volumetrics including sky. There's foreground channel available so it's easy to separate sky and objects with it and should give same result as now. This is solution that vray uses, but maybe there's reason and current solution works better...

Beauty pass is separately saved as additional file with _default suffix, it's same as main file.

Seems like I've spotted bug: with aperture diffraction enabled some weird things are happening on depth channel, like multiplied with alpha or something...

There is still an issue with rendering large scenes with GPU (open CL) ticked. When these scenes are rendered the screen remains black and nothing happens. The solution is rendering large scenes with indigo version 4.0.64 which seems to work fine for these scenes but the scenes render slower than the latest version so I have to keep redownloading different versions of indigo depending on the size of the scene. I'm not sure what has happened along the way with the updated versions but my computer spec is pretty high: CPU 4GHz, 32GB memory, GeForce GTX 1080.

You could try setting allow_high_quality_bvh to false in your inifile.xml, e.g.
add

Code: Select all

<allow_high_quality_bvh>false</allow_high_quality_bvh>
