Export with transparent background, PNG or other

not really. I used to try "green screening" but it bleeds into the lighting and reflections.

You can do it if you render in a SLVP.

Put a rectangle behind the SLVP with a ridiculous fill color. Export. Open in favorite

image editor. Select and delete ridiculous fill color.

I was looking for a one step process. I have been exporting, opening in PhotoShop, and deleting the background there. Wish list I guess!

Nemetzchek should be able to implement this pretty easily. The technology exists in the Cinema 4D rendering engine. I am assuming your rendering either has a black or white background. Vectorworks isn't so good at compositing at the moment. It would be great if your could turn the alpha channel for a viewport on or off.

I agree. This would let me apply artistic renderworks hidden line renderings on top of a Final renderworks rendering for example. ... and adjust the transparency / darkness of the sketchy lines. At the moment I can only get light grey with the chinese rendering mode.

I've been wishing for this as well... someone posted it over in the feature request forum too. The C4D<>Vectorworks workflow is so convoluted that even if I had the cash to drop on a C4D license, I still don't think I should be forced to use it every time I want to edit a simple rendering in Photoshop.

Export to pdf and then open in PS (for example).
