Speed up Compositing in Blender 2.8 (Cryptomatte Tutorial)

Hi everyone!

In my new tutorial you'll learn how to use the new Cryptomatte feature in Blender 2.8 Cycles, which allows you to quickly mask out areas while compositing. A huge time saver, if you want to adjust your rendering without re-rendering all the time.

    • I have a feeling the impact on productivity will be so big, that Blender 2.8 will be the Windows Vista of Blender versions, 2 years and bye bye...

  1. This is MOST welcome! I wish it would be also for EEVEE. Sorry, I didn't have time to view the video, but is it material based or object parameter based?
