Don't know exactly where to ask this question but I need help to save time in my render. Is it possible to just render a soloed object so I don't have to render the rest of the scene and render the background with alpha? I know I can turn off the dots in the side of the object that would prevent the render of all the other objects in the scene but I have to do it for every object and that affects the lighting in the object I want to render.
Soloing the object isolates the object I want to render and doesn't affect the lighting which is what I want, but when I render it keeps rendering the entire scene which doesn't save me time. I know about the render buffer where I put the ID tags but that seems to render the entire scene as well. I hope this makes sense, any help from the experts here would be appreciated.
