There used to be Image, then Alpha, then Depth, then Mist in the outputs of the Render Layers node in Blender Compositing.

Now I can't find Depth anymore. Could someone help me find it, or tell me the new alternative?

  • $\begingroup$ Hello, that's weird because it seems to be here in 3.5.1, maybe in the View Layer panel > Passes >Data > make sure that the Z otpion is enabled? $\endgroup$

Go to: View Layer Properties > Passes > Data and check the box labeled "Z". This tells Blender that you also want the depth data as output so the socket Depth will appear.
