Cloner and After Effects

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to pass a simple cloner with deforming planes to AE and pick on the fly any clone in order to use it as luma matte? (that would be the ideal setup).
Other than that, is there a pass/aov of c4d that can give u mattes per clone index?

ps. seems i cannot press the sides of the webpage btw cursor gets deactivated lol

RE: aov of c4d that can give u mattes per clone index?
I'm not sure if using "Mograph Color Shader" will result in unique colors per index but I know that does: Cryptomatte. 
With Cryptomatte, gone are the days of making manual mattes.

This is my thought, though cryptomatte doesnt read polygons, but objects. And probably cloner considered a single object. 
Probably there is a workaround, maybe via fracture i need to give it a go 🙂
