Invisible to the camera mesh

Post by S0rda » Sun Feb 03, 2019 12:22 pm

Is it possible to make the mesh visible to the light, but invisible to the camera?

This is necessary in order to receive secondary reflections on the object, and the environment itself must be invisible. In Сycles, this can be done with the help of such a bunch of nodes.

Yes, there is an object flag (i.e. it is an object attribute, not a material one):
