Please help me out with this setup:
I am rendering one object on layer 1 with a complete lighting setup. Layer 2 holds another object on top of the first and has it’s on lighting on layer 2. These lights should only affect layer 2 and not cause reflections on layer 1. However, I have problems setting up the render layers. (I assume they are the way to go here)
I tried different setups, which all didn’t work. Either only layer 1 shows up, or both layers, but then layer 2 lights cause reflections on layer 1. I set up two render layers, one with scene 1 and layer 1 checked, and another render layer with scene 1 and layer 2 checked. Why is that wrong?
I’d be happy for a suggestion which tutorial to watch/read, that might answer my question, too.
Edit: I am using planes with an emitting material as lights, not lamps. I know, that there is a checkbox for “this layer only” when using lamps, but I need a physical plane to cast some defined reflections and still only affect one layer at a time.
