is it possible to add new ViewLayers to current beta version, or it is work in progress? I am looking for a way to render two objects on two separate viewlayers with different compositing nodes on each and then merge them together. I have been looking around but cannot find a definite answer how to do it, or if it is even possible.

I am using Cycles and Eevee.

This animatable checks

enter image description here

Now presented it view layer settings:

Per layer settings for exclude, holdout and indirect only, that previously are been here:

enter image description here

now can be setup in context menu:

You need to know that EEVEE doesn't supports holdout and indirect only at current time.

    $\begingroup$ Thank you, spent so much time looking for it yesterday and google gave me no definite answer <3 $\endgroup$ – internetofmine Dec 16 '18 at 14:24
  • $\begingroup$ I guess this new system of excluding/masking is not animateable, right? Also, how to understand that layer is used as Holdout: some icon is greyed or something else? $\endgroup$ – Serge L Dec 16 '18 at 16:06
  • $\begingroup$ @SergeL at current time, it needs some works, yes $\endgroup$ – Crantisz Dec 16 '18 at 16:23
  • $\begingroup$ @SergeL don't forget that it is a beta-version of software, most of commercial software doesn't posted in alpha state at all $\endgroup$ – Crantisz Dec 18 '18 at 11:00
  • $\begingroup$ With such major update it is a right way to do it, makes transition to new version much easier $\endgroup$ – Serge L Dec 18 '18 at 11:16
