Yes in arnold builtin, you don't have any way to get the albedo with this version. Maybe you want to take a look at the alShaders 3rd party library. The albedo AOV was maybe already supported at that time, but I'm not sure.

4.4.11.0 doesn't exist, do you mean 4.2.11.0 ? that's a very old version (2 years old).

I'm afraid the diffuse_albedo AOV wasn't implemented at that time, which is why it's not showing up for you.

Hi Siva ! :-)

Maybe "diffuse_albedo" is the one you need.

This is an Arnold 4 documentation page about AOVs :

I am sorry about the wrong version number I posted; It is 4.2.11.0.

So it means there is no way to get the albedo of diffuse from this version? I want to extract the flat albedo information as an aov. Is there any workaround or any script available?
