I'm playing with View Layers since I have to separate a lot of stuff from a scene. It's working great but I was wondering how it does impact the render performances.

If I have, let's say, 10 View Layers; but only one is used in the compositor. Are they all rendered or just the one that is used ?


  • $\begingroup$ Yes, one by one. Each view layer has a "Use for Rendering" property -> View Layer Properties (image stack icon) > View Layer > Use for Rendering. Disable that if you want to exclude one view layer from the actual rendering. $\endgroup$ – brockmann Nov 10 '20 at 14:57
