Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Render Render Setup layers, part of Maya 2016 Extension 2 New Features.
- [Voiceover] Now finally, the reason that we create…render layers in Render Setup is mostly…so that we can actually create rendered images.…So when you use Render Setup…there's two ways to create images.…One is to use Batch Render.…So in Render Setup we have a flag here,…and this flag, when set, will enable…that layer for batch render.…So if you have a layer turned on, it will create…a sub-directory and place the images into that folder.…
So if you have four layers,…it will render four different sets of images.…Now if you want to just do a standard single frame render…or render current frame, all you have to do…is just make that layer visible.…So if I wanted to render, say, this matte layer here,…all I have to do is make sure I click on that…little eyeball, make that the visible layer,…and then just do a Render Current Frame.…And when I do that it will go ahead…and render just that layer.…
So this is a great way to do test renders of your layer…as you can just render a single frame, see how it looks…and then go do the batch render.…
