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.

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.

I'm not aware of any method to do this currently, but you could just render them both in different passes and then use the compositor to create the final result.
