DescriptionWe present an artist-controllable system for stylizing metal surfaces. The technique filters a beauty render through an image-space color flood-fill algorithm driven by a Cryptomatte-encoded identifiers pass. This results in a temporally coherent non-photorealistic effect. We discuss generating IDs, tools for artist control, and integration into a production pipeline.
