The parent page describes the AOVs render settings tab. This includes describing the built-in options and how to select what you want.

However, for many productions you may want to author your own LPE using this menu. Below we describe the process.


Notice on the left are the Display Channels, simply called "Channels" here. And on the right are the Display Drivers, referred to here as "Displays"

Under each section are icons highlighted with a plus sign '+' for creating a new Display Channel or Driver.

We'll begin with Channels:

  1. Create a new channel by selecting the plus sign

2. You can add this channel to the Displays on the right by double-clicking, this will automatically create a new Display Driver.


3. Double-clicking the name will allow you to rename the Display Driver and channels.

Careful naming will allow the Denoiser to recognize the channels and denoise them. You can find out more about that and the accepted names here under Layered Filtering (For AOVs). The Denoise utility looks for the correct Channel name to be sure it's using the correct options and filter accordingly.
