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.
