Well, I can't personally help any of you, but regarding that, I CAN say that if you render to layers, then all passes can be layered together in your post app.

Should be no sweat

Very useful tut, racecgi :bow:

I could have used that in my "contribution". Anyway, I ended up rendering everything in one pass in Maya. But at the expense of a lot of exturing hastle.

Keep going R@nSiD, I'm really curious how your scene is going to end up. Good luck
