I have decals on my mesh in Cycles by way of placing it over my original material with a mix shader.

How can I render my decals alone on a 2nd render pass?

Thank you!

  • $\begingroup$ No and no. You can't apply materials to vertex, nor can you have more than one material assigned to a face. How would you render that? $\endgroup$ – Duarte Farrajota Ramos Mar 22 '18 at 22:22
