We take a look at how to manage layers and collections from within Maya’s new Render Setup Window. In the video, George shows how to create a render layer from scratch, then add collections to that layer. He then adds objects such as geometry by dragging them into the window and by using expressions.
- [Voiceover] Now let's dive a little bit deeper…into render setup and create our own layers and collections.…So here I have a basic scene,…and I'm gonna go ahead and just hop out to a four view here.…And let's open up our Render Setup window.…When you first open Render Setup,…you'll just have your default scene here.…We don't have any layers in this particular scene.…We can add those here by pressing this plus sign,…and that creates a render layer.…
I'm gonna just go ahead and keep that at default,…but if you want, you can always change the name…by double-clicking on it and typing in a new name.…Now, this layer has nothing in it.…So if I set this layer as visible,…you'll see that, well, there is nothing in it.…But we can add stuff to this layer…by creating what's called a collection.…So, we can create collections of lights, objects,…or really anything that we can put into a scene…we can put into a collection.…
So, if I right-click over this and go "Create Collection",…that creates a collection which is a child of the layer,…
