Maya 2008 Render layers
Well its my turn for the big ask...the old pro needs some help.
Ive just purchased Maya 2008 and all is well but I have some irritation with render layers. Not sure if its a bug on my part or Im overlooking something thats just blatantly obvious.
Ive just updated from Version 6 where the layering contains everything as you would render it, again without using passes.
All I want to do is render separate objects on separate layers that include all my shadows, spec and reflect etc without rendering passes, which is a bit on the time consuming side for me.
the prob I have atm is that the master layer can render the scene with shads etc, but the minute I use a separate layer for each object, shadows cast from one object to the other (in the master layer) are no longer present.
Is it me or is it Maya..?
Many thanks if you can answer this
