Does anyone know where the "Exclude" and "Mask"-features can be found for the View Layers, (formerly "Render Layers") in Blender 2.8?


1 Answer 1


Old "Render Layers" are now here, in the top right corner:

enter image description here

In the context menu (RMB) in outliner you can set to any collection to be Excluded, masked (now holdout) or hided (now Indirect Only).

enter image description here

View layer -> Set Exclude is old Exclude function

View layer -> Set Holdout is old Mask function

View layer -> Set Indirect Only is like you Hide layer, but not exclude it.

  • $\begingroup$ But there is problem that it can not be combined. For example Holdout without influence another layer. It can be done with Mask and Exclude in old Blender. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Cenda it seems to me that realization of layers is almost same. Maybe you can provide an example that do you mean, in new question? $\endgroup$
