Viewport Matte Blocker

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to create a viewport mask object, just for quick flipbooking of objects going behind another object?

Say if I had real footage of a tree trunk in my background camera plate - I want to flipbook an object going behind this tree.. Can I use a cylinder in place of the tree trunk and set this object to be invisible in the viewport, but also hide whatever passes behind it?

Dare I say it.. Like Maya's `use background` viewport shader.

There is a viewer foreground image you can specify. Perhaps if you supplied a simple cutout of your tree with an alpha it might work..?

Thanks for this tip @Atom! Definitely handy for certain situations, although I was hoping to use an animated or moving 3D object in the scene for the matte blocker.

I'm not sure this functionality exists.
