What is CTexmap render element?


The CTexmap render element lets you render a pass with a chosen texture map applied to the whole scene (except excluded objects). You can use it to add ambient occlusion or other texture passes for further post-processing. 

This pass does not include any shading information. It can use a custom background color (which is sometimes required when compositing the beauty and CTexmap elements), and can be denoised
