Render non-visible layers?

Probably a stupid question and I think I already know the answer. If I only have layer 1 selected on the Scene matrix of the Render Layers tab, but I have all layers selected on the Layers matrix, will it render all layers? Is there any way to achieve this?


No, it will only render combination of layers selected in the Scene AND Layer matrix. You’ll have to add a new renderLayer if you want to render things seperately.

You can also optionally use the composite nodes for more control / effects.
