Lets say I rendered 2 different openexr images with some passes and now I want to z-combine them and save them as 1 openexr image with the same passes, how do I do that? I'm using cycles I tried the following, but it only saves it as combine, not with passes? enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ by plugging the combined image to a composite node you are only saving the result of the Z-combine and all other information is getting lost. Use a File Output node and create sockets for as many layers as you want to save.

  • $\begingroup$ but I need to combine those two images as well using z-combine. How will i combine other passes? $\endgroup$ – Ratan Feb 21 '19 at 19:20
  • $\begingroup$ Each pass is an individual layer. You would need to use Z-combine in each layer that you want to combine and then save them as a separate layer by using the File Output node. $\endgroup$ – user1853 Feb 21 '19 at 19:50
