Awesome Automated Z-Depth Shader Mel Script...and it is FREE :)



Z Depth in Maya using Mental Ray can be a pain in the ass, but recently I found this script that automatically creates custom Z Depth Shaders for you. Perhaps the coolest thing is that it preserves the transparency of any alpha channel your textures might have. A HUGE time saver. You can find the Z-Depth Mel script at the links below along with many others:
