Why exrTrader?

Because it is the only way to adjust OpenEXR exports to fit your pipeline:

  • Arbitrary pixel type per channel
    LightWave saves all channels as 32-bit float, exrTrader gives you the option of how to save each channel.
    This can reduce file sizes by up to 50% without a compromise in visual quality.
  • Full selection of OpenEXR compression schemes
    This allows you to pick the compression that fits your pipeline. ZIPS for Nuke or Fusion, ZIP for After Effects, B44 or DWA for playback.
  • Data Window support
    When rendering passes, only the area of the image that contains content will be saved in the EXR. This can provide a large speed up when compositing in Nuke and Fusion.
  • Compact and Streamlined GUI
  • Cryptomatte
    exrTrader Pro is the only solution for LightWave 3D to write Cryptomattes.
