    depth export?

    I see I can export a layer depth as 8bit jpg file from Artrage demo. 8 bit for depth is pretty useless. Would I have more options if I buy the soft ? 16 bit tiff at least, or 32 bit exr? Maybe as 32 bit psd with alphas?

    No, ArtRage supports 8 bit for everything. It looks like we answered this question from you before here https://forums.artrage.com/showthrea...h-from-Artrage

    PSD export does include alpha, so it's possible you're mix and matching some measuring methods here. Just to be sure (or for the benefit of anyone else reading!):

    8-bit RGB refers to the potential number of values for each colour channel (e.g. Red, Green and Blue - the base colour options, plus alpha for some file types). Some programs support 16 or 32 bits, but not many. It's a short hand for how many bits in each channel, not the total number of bits in a file.

    An exported JPEG is actually 24 bits: 8 x 3 (8 for Red, 8 for Green, 8 for Blue).
    PNG or PSD are 32 bits: 8 x 4 (RGB + alpha channel)
    An exported PSD from a program that supports 32 bit channels would be 128 bits.

    So ArtRage will create 32 bit PSDs with Alpha support, but it does not have 32 bit RGB support.

    Thanks for your answer, and sorry for asking it again. It's just an important feature for me since 8 bit depth is not enough to represent depth properly without artifacts or make masks based on it. I hoped maybe something have changed.

    It's okay - I'm sorry we can't give you a better answer, but it's not something most people actually need, and it would require a disproportionate amount of work to implement right now.
