Is there any way to render a specific scene, say the background, during only the second half of an animation while the foreground renders the entire time? For example in a 100 frame clip could I get the foreground rendering for all 100 frames but have the background only render out for frames 60-100? I'm using cycles render.

  • $\begingroup$ Do you have a reason to render the background and the foreground at the same time? If not, just render them separately and composite them together later. $\endgroup$ – user1853 Jun 30 '19 at 0:41

You can animate the renderability of the objects that are "background", pressing "I" while hoovering on the camera icon of an object or an entire collection.
