This is the same tutorial provided by Alias on their site. Silver Membership or higher is required to view it, but the process looks exactly the same (https://www.alias.com/glb/eng/communi...itemId=2800057)
Dunno who was the originator (edu site - I think). But I got good results from the tutorial. I think this is the accepted way to deal with this type of rendered effect.
