Set Mat ID on Vray Blend Material
show user profile  FX
I can't figure out how to register the ID channel on the blend amount of a Vray blend material.

The blend base layer is a Vray mat with a black and white alpha in the blend amount slot controlling some lettering (decal style), but the lettering doesn't appear in my Mat id pass.
It's not a show stopper but I'd like to quickly select and tweak the lettering in post.

any ideas?

If you have a mask for the two materials then you'd get the same effect though, unless I'm misunderstanding.

Or vray extratex set up with the blend mask?
