Need help with nodes

I got nodes for a glow effect set up but I don’t know how to separate it from the rest of the scene. I try by putting it on a different layer but it either doesn’t work or it only renders one of the layers. can anyone help me with this? Thanks.

Review the docs on RenderLayers. (Which are not the same thing as “layers.”)

You’ll need to define one RenderLayer that captures the glow, and another RenderLayer that doesn’t.

Once you have verified (using Viewer nodes) that you have cleanly isolated the outputs, you can now Mix them to produce the final comp. (Actually, there are several combiner-type nodes that can be used for that last step …)

Oh ya I forgot to put the other layer in the node editor. thanks.
