Cryptomatte virgin here. Anyone got a quick start pls?

this is the video I used. the big thing is you HAVE to use the color picker that is used in the video, and you need autokey off or to make sure you don’t create extra keyframes.

that said, I believe the node is now native in Flame, so it might be simpler now.

Here’s @La_Flame’s excellent Flame Learning Channel video on the native Flame node:


Does the cryptomatte render have to be 32bit?

Not necessarily.

It works at 16-bit

Perfect, thank you. My archives has been crazy large and that will help massively :slight_smile:
