Hey community! Please help? I am having a few issues with the cryptomattes I am receiving. They look fine in nuke when the cg guys are checking them, but when I try to extract them in batch they are coming out very grainy… all help appreciated! They are 32 bit, and I am not resizing or changing anything…
Are they getting provided to you correctly? Flame can only except seven inputs and it can be easy for CG to provide too many
Thanks Richard, Yep, there’s too many! I hadn’t encountered this before, so that makes sense - thank you. I will get them to resupply and test again. Thanks a lot!
I have never seen a poor, grainy result though so it might not be this but if there is data being supplied in channels that Flame doesn’t have access to then some information is missing
Good luck @Naomi
Do you know what render they are using?
AOVs in Redshift
Ensure that the preview layer is enabled and set the cryptomatte level to 3
Ensure that the preview layer is enabled and set the cryptomatte level to 6
Yep! That makes perfect sense. It’s behaving like “tolerance” - the more I select, the more "tolerance I get, but I am not getting a clean matte… They’re using Redshift, so I’ll get them to export it correctly. Attached some snaps for you anyway for interest’s sake.
Thanks again for your help, @PlaceYourBetts
Don’t use the matte outputs of the cryptolayers in you file. Plug the fronts only into all of the crypto inputs.
Look carefully at the connections in my screen grab:
The first Cyrptomatte is only a Prview frame and is not used in the calculation.
Ahh thanks guys. Let me try that!
Yep… that worked!! Brilliant thank you!! You guys rock.
