Whenever I do a render the requires multiple passes for compositing, I typically make a little guide for myself. Otherwise I start making mistakes and get overwhelmed by all the different settings. ESPECIALLY if i’m working with someone who is also going to be working with my files.
Every project is different, so I keep a super lightweight guide template that I can adjust to be whatever it needs to be. I typically print it out and just fill it out by hand. It’s certainly nothing special, but I thought I would share and give some insight as to how I work.
