Alert:  Experienced worker - but AP newbie : )

I want to use AP to edit multi-layer exr exports from a 3D CGI software. The EXR files typically contain up to 15 layers of information. Each of those layers contain full RGB data.

When AP imports these files it:
Treats the first layer as an RGB layer = 'Layer one (pixel)'
Treats all the other layers as though they were individual colour channels, rather than composite RGB layers...
, ie:
Layer two [blue] (Pixel)
Layer two [green] (Pixel)
Layer two [red] (Pixel)

So I end up with 43 layers, rather than 15...

Two questions:

1. Is there a way for AP to interpret all these layers as RGB composite layers on import / open ?

or, if not:

2. What is the most efficient way to take:
Layer two [blue] (Pixel)
Layer two [green] (Pixel)
Layer two [red] (Pixel)

and make it into: Layer two (Pixel)  -  ie, a full composite RGB layer.

 

Thanks for any help.

Hi @Mike_A,

Could you attach your .exr file?  Also which application did you use to create the file?

I've seen this issue a few times on the Forums, but doesn't look like anyone has been able to find out why this is happening.  But if you can provide your file, i'll look into this and find out what's happening :)

Stokerg,

Thanks. Just before your response I'd (re)posted this under 'bugs' - and included an example file with that posting.

File was generated by Maxon Cinema 4D (C4D) version R21. I'll add these details to the above post.

Could this thread be deleted pleae.

This might help

You can automate the process by creating 3 simple channel mixer presets and recording a macro to apply them, plus change the blend mode ton „add“

Unfortunately for AP, I could also just open the file in Photoshop = job done.
