Recently, I've been baking lots of cameras for shot specific work. I've been using Mari for this because I can import in cameras as I need them and keep the same asset loaded.

Painter, however requires that I import the cameras along with my geometry. This is a disruptive workflow.

Is it possible that we could have a camera management system that is standalone and I can import cameras at will? This would be a fantastically more useful camera management system.

When doing extensive groundplane and set work, importing cameras as needed is a godsend.

Thank you!

Hey Vincent,

I just tested this and its only padding values within shells. I want the padding to take place between shells.

First image is padding where I want it to be, between the shells.
Second image is what I want the final output mask to look like with padding.
Third image is unpadded.

It seems that the padding filter you made it applying a padding to the mask, however its still stuck to the shells and no color information gets written in between shell islands.

Is there a way to have the padding exist in between shell islands?


Thanks a ton!

Is it possible to add dilatation support for Masks when exporting to file? I only need like a 2-16 pixel bleed.

My studio renderer automatically mipmaps, so when I export masks directly to file I'm getting shell seams in my renders.

My current workaround is adding bleed manually in photoshop.

Hey Vincent,

I'm an artist here at Blue Sky Studios, using Painter with Linux.

I've also noticed I cannot add padding to masks when exporting to file.

I use a mask heavy workflow with my characters, because I want all of my coloring and shader mixing to be done in the renderer. I'm getting very egregious seams where 2 shells meet.

Is it possible to add a setting for padding/dialation when exporting masks to file?
