Hi, is there a way to use the terrain as a mask?

 

I would like my render a view of my house to show ONLY the house above grade without any terrain being rendered with it.

 

thanks!

It depends on exactly what you are doing -- what view and how the camera is set up.

 

This is a white background and white terrain. I left the skirt green. There is a 96" foundation wall.

thank you Eric, I'm trying to place the 3D rendering into a photograph. so far I have used the Build/Image/Create Image, and set it to "Image Always Faces Camera".

 

Ideally I would be able to set the terrain so that it acted as a mask, only showing the portions of the rendering that are above grade.

 

I can also retreat to Photoshop, but seems like that would add time.
