Capture to Custom AOV


The Capture to Custom AOV node can be used to apply a texture to a custom AOV pass (figure 1). Once a Capture to Custom AOV node has been connected to a material network, the custom AOV needs to be activated in the AOVs tab for the Octane Render Target. See the section on AOVs for more information on using the Octane AOV passes.
