Product Information

  • Required Products: None

Camera Cutaway is a small suite of scripts that use Iray Section Node Planes to improve your scene, whether reducing rendering time or cutting away objects to be able to render inside them. Cutaway planes can be turned on and off quickly and easily, enabling rendering of your scene without drastically changing your scene by deleting or hiding objects.

Part of the Camera Doctor Bundle, Camera Cutaway adds 4 great scripts! Camera Cutaway includes: Camera Cutaway - Quickly and easily optimize your Iray rendering time with Camera Cutaway! Camera Cutaway uses Iray Section Node Planes to easily clip away objects outside the view of the camera, reducing rendering time. Even better, cutaway planes move with the camera and will work with animations! Add Cutaway Planes to the top, bottom, and/or sides of your camera view individually.

Camera Cutaway Hide All - Hide, or disable, all Camera Cutaways in your scene. Scene Cutaways are untouched. Camera Cutaway Reset - Resets all Camera Cutaways to be outside the view of your cameras. Use this when you change the global or local camera aspect ratios to move the Camera Cutaways back outside the view. Camera Scene Cutaway - Peer deep inside your scene with Scene Cutaway! Scene Cutaway sets up an Iray Section Plane that can be oriented to the scene, selected object, or camera. Scene cutaways are awesome when you want to render inside a room but cannot easily orient the camera because of space. No more worrying about if an object has a wall that can be hidden. No more worrying that hiding objects will change the scene lighting either. Just use Scene Cutaway!

A script is also included for installing the scripts as custom actions. This product is for Iray only. Note that Camera Cutaways reduce rendering time but do not change the amount of GPU memory required. Camera Cutaways may change the lighting of your scene because of lights outside the cutaway plane. By turning the Clip Lights option on, your scene will render as if the cutaway does not exist but rendering time will not be optimized.
