To render meshes in separate layers, set the layer for the Figure/Prop (in the "Layer" box), then in the Settings tree Render Layer->Enable and us the Active Layer Id to render out the layer you want. I suggest checking the Octane Standalone manual (docs.otoy.com) to see exactly how all this works).

That is, you render the background/scene elements as one layer and then say render a person in the foreground as another layer. For animation purposes, it would make sense to render a non moving background for only one frame and then the foreground/moving meshes frames as alphas.
