Once you start using the Render layer Editor, you have the opportunity to…create multiple layers.…Once you have multiple layers, you can turn those into special render passes.…There is a simple way to do it through the Render layer Editor, which we'll talk about.…So we're picking up from the last movie where we have the spyglass set up on its…own special layer called layer1, and of course, we saw the master layer.…Now one thing you can do is rename a layer, and this will be good because we…need to create multiple layers, to create some additional render passes.…So if you just double-click, you can rename a layer. I'm going to call this monolayer,…named after the monocular. And you can duplicate layers just right here through the…Render layer Editor by right mouse keying and choosing Copy layer, that will…copy the entire layer, you'll get all the same objects assigned to it on that layer.…
So I can go to that new layer, and it looks just the same.…I'm going to do that one more time, we need a total of three in this case, and…
