Render components of light groups?

Hi,

What's the optimal method for rendering out various components of light groups? I.e. render diffuse & specular separately for each light group. E.g. key light diffuse, key light specular, fill light diffuse, fill light specular, etc.

I know how to render light group AOVs. I know how to render component AOVs. I just don't know how to combine them.

Maybe this is what Operators are for, but I have no clue about that and am hoping there is a way to do it with AOVs.

Thanks!

Aaron

Create custom AOVs with names like diffuse_key or diffuse_fill

For example, to get the diffuse AOV for the key light group:

  • Enter key in the AOV box of a light
  • Add a custom AOV named diffuse_key

Thank you Stephen, I had actually solved this problem back in January and totally forgot about it!!! Now I feel foolish... but at least the answer is here for anyone else who needs it.
