Perhaps I am missing something obvious but after much searching I still have not found a way to set a material ID color.  What I want to do is have the ID of my V-ray glass separated out in photoshop so that I can place a reflection on my  building very accurately.  Any clue how to do that?

Finally.  After searching for another 45 minutes I found it.  For those out there that like to adjust their materials post production here it is: 

Go to the stand alone material editor

Advanced-Options-Color-ID color

This is an important feature that most people will find useful.  It should be noted that within Form.z there is no way that I have found to set the material ID.  You must save it as a V-ray material first and then use the Editor.

I completely agree.  The material ID channel is critical to post production work no matter what your field is.  Every client likes to tweak the final materials and re rendering is a complete waste of time.  Form.z must implement a material color ID channel into the Form.z translated materials without having to translate it into a V-ray material first.  I will see what they say.
