Build Export Node [View Layer Render Pass]

by Bookyakuno in Addons

Build a node for exporting view layer render passes

You can instantly export all render passes by simply clicking the add-on button and then rendering.

Set various render passes to the file output node in the composite node and perform node construction to normalize the render pass information.

When you rendering, the settings of the composite node will be reflected and each render pass will be saved as an image file.
