Is it possible to make parts of an image/animation render transparent? enter image description here

I rendered this cube in the regular render image way. But is there a way to make the area around the cube transparent when rendering or before rendering?

  • $\begingroup$ thx, I just want the area around the cube to be transparent. So I see the cube in the render, but all the area around it transparent - no shadow. $\endgroup$ Commented Aug 11, 2021 at 3:25

Yes. Go to Properties editor, Render Settings, Film panel, and enable Render Transparent.

See this blender docs page

To add to TheLabCat's answer, you can also use the Holdout node to make an object transparent. In Cycles you'll have to enable the Render > Film > Transparent option to make it work.
