When rendering a scene for production, it’s important for the compositing artist who receives your renders to have as much control as possible for making adjustments in post. Handing off a flat beauty pass just isn't an option. It’s situations like these that multi-pass rendering was designed for. This Maya tutorial will introduce you to the concept of multi-pass rendering and walk you through the tools and techniques you’ll need to be familiar with. We’ll start by learning about render layers and layer overrides.

With the advent of the high-resolution sculpting workflow, the modeled assets we create can sometimes be difficult to work with in their native state. For this reason, various tools are typically used to create a new, pipeline-friendly topology for the model. There are different methods for creating this geometry and it's important that the method we use be quick, efficient and gives us the control we require.
