This technique will save you huge amounts of time when you need to tweak your rendering's colors and save you from the endless cycle of tweaking and re-rendering.

Have you been assigning materials to your scenes, rendering, tweaking color, re-rendering, tweaking, rendering ad nauseam? I used to do this too. Well with this tutorial, it's time to stop! Learn the trick the pros use to tweak color after the rendering is already done in an image editor using a Material ID layer. I'll show you exactly how to do it in my favorite 3d tools - formZ and Maxwell Render. It works in other programs as well.
