I rendered passes from a scene in another program and wanted to use Blender to composite them. What is the node setup for combining a diffuse color pass and shadow pass into one image? Thanks!

Color: enter image description here

Shadow: enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ Please add example images for the passes you want to combine. The node setup may vary depending on how your shadow pass looks like. $\endgroup$ – piegames May 17 '16 at 16:30
  • $\begingroup$ You usually use a mix node set to multiply $\endgroup$ – Bithur May 17 '16 at 18:42
  • $\begingroup$ Color example: i.imgur.com/QkKrEL4.png Shadow example: i.imgur.com/CYmqE0x.png They would be a series of images like these. Thanks for the help! @Bithur I'll try that. : ) $\endgroup$ – Animatoring May 17 '16 at 19:00
  • $\begingroup$ This doesn't look like a shadow pass, it's a render with shadows, with a deactivated layer. try this trick :blender.stackexchange.com/a/3003/11431 an use a "real" shadow pass (check shadow in render passes) $\endgroup$ – Bithur May 17 '16 at 20:02
