Point Cloud Workflow

Unread postby GraemeVR » Tue Oct 15, 2019 2:43 pm

Newbie question. When I import an Obj it appears in the center of the world. I then use that Obj to scatter on some geo using Point Cloud and Scatterer.
When I Render out an image my scattered OBJ is in the render but so is the original OBJ in the center of the world. How do I hide the Obj in the center while keeping the Scattered OBj materials visible. My workflow is not right, can anybody help?

Hi,

By default, everything that is in the same context as the image is rendered. Just put your original OBJ somewhere else. You can create a context at the root level (project://) and put everything you don't want to be rendered inside. (Assuming you have the startup hierarchy = the context scene with the image inside)

Cheers ;)
