Since there is no way to export a Normals pass from FumeFX for re-lighting in comp, I set this up to set your Red, Green, and Blue lights to fake an RGB pass. It's pretty straight forward.

FumeFX RGB Light Rig


  • Added a Link and Unlink button so that you can attach it to the Fume Grid
  • Fixed a problem with the grid moving to the Fume Grid.
  • Fixed lights getting messed up when playing with controller distance
  • Colored the lights' wirecolor to match the light color. I got the idea from Joe Gunn
  • When you select the FumeGrid, it will go to the position of the grid wherever it is in the scene. Before it would just go to the origin.
  • Added a button to move the rig to the selected grid.
  • Added notifications in the Listener after adding, removing, lights and re-aligning the grid.
  • Click "Build FumeFX Light Rig" to setup the rig. It creates the lights that are parented to a master dummy that you can move around.
  • Add and Remove the rig lights to Fume. Just make sure the container you want the lights added.
  • Control over the lights' individual on/off state and light multiplier.
  • Distance Controller globally controls the distance of the light's from the center.

Still very buggy on 2014

Hi there Stark,

I've seen the vids on this and its great work, but sadly its very buggy in max 2014, errors everywhere. Tried with empty scene and pratically all buttons produces errors.. Would love to use it really!
