Hi, yes, this is how it works. What do you mean by translucent background? It's not possible for you to add a white background in post? Or a big white sphere (big enough to contain the project) only for the ao pass? ciao beppe
i exported in one batch stadard image+ layer mask and in a second way the AO pass (after activate my plane visibility to have the shadows on the plane)
when I export the AO pass with HDRI environment tag even with alpha layer option, the result ihave is good for the plane and the shadows but the sky over the plane is black. I want the sky translucent.
