PxrImagePlaneFilter PxrImageDisplayFilter is used to render an image plate for in-render compositing. It can be used in conjunction with the holdout workflow to composite 3D elements onto 2D plates.



A file path to the film plate texture image.

  • Texture images should be made with mode black and resize up.
  • PxrImagePlaneFilter PxrImageDisplayFilter expects the input texture to be a camera projection, not a Lat Long environment map. You must first bake out a 2D projection of your environment map if you wish to use it as your film plate.

Color Offset

Apply a sRGB to linear color transformation to the input texture.

  • Stretch Resize the image to match the render display.
  • Inside Scale the image to fit inside the render display while preserving the aspect ratio.
  • Outside Scale the image to fill the render display while preserving the aspect ratio.
  • Horizontal Scale the image to match the horizontal display while preserving the aspect ratio.
  • Vertical Scale the image to match the vertical display while preserving the aspect ratio.
