I now render-out all of my Artlantis images as *.tag files with the "Alpha channel" selected. The "Alpha channel" creats a perfect 'mask' around the model, even with Antialiasing. If I need to make a revision in the Model: I make the revision in DW, I add the revision to my Artlantis file, I re-render the image with the exact settings I used originally, and now I can quickly pop it right into the finished rendering. Not loosing a beat with the background and or landscaping objects I've already included in the rendering. I'm not sure which other formats support the "Alpha channel", but it sure save a load of time. The "Alpha channel" ignores any background that you have placed in Artlantis, so making background changes in your finishing software is a breeze.
