Rendering Edges Separately

To save the beauty render (without edges) and edges separately, you must create an RGBA AOV (beauty) and Custom AOV (edges). Use a box_filter for the RGBA AOV (because the contour_filter uses box_filter internally) and a contour_filter for the edges Custom AOV. This enables you to render two separate images simultaneously, which also saves the overall rendering time.

RGBA (box_filter) and edges custom AOV (contour_filter)


Information about custom AOVs can be found here. An example toon scene (with AOVs) can be downloaded here.

AOV Prefix

An optional aov_prefix that will be prepended to the toon AOVs' names. For instance, if aov_prefix is "toon_", the toon diffuse AOV will be written out to "toon_diffuse". This can be used when you need to access both the toon AOVs and the core's LPE AOVs.
