combining render layers
on Sep 4, 2009 at 3:43:28 pm

Hey guys, I'm running on the new maya and its confusing me on whether its possible to combine 2 render layers. I have just a regular color layer and the other one above it is the ambient occlusion with its mode set to multiply. But I'm not sure if there is a way, or how to combine both layers together during rendertime.
I just want it to render the AO pass and color one to be together rather then put out 2 passes.
I've looked through the manual but honestly I'm its soooo confusing and I'm not really sure if i've looked through the solution there or not as I'm still fairly new to the whole render layers and its horribly confusing me.

Many thanks in advance!

P.S. I should mention that before my job upgraded from 8.5 to 2010 i had no trouble combining the render layers but now the whole system seems different and its really annoying.

Hey Stan...

I'm pretty sure you can only combine the images in post (photoshop or after effects).
