guys! I want to render this scene (in a video, rotating the camera around the head and the word) but I made the word following a eevee tutorial and the other parts work better in cycles.

Is there a way to render them separately and then join afterwards?

Thanks in advance!

Sure, use two Scenes

You can specify the render engine for each of your scene.

Then in the Render layer node you can specificy the scene to inspect for picking the right view layer.

  • $\begingroup$ Interesting, can I use this method to mix automatically two different layers rendered with two render engines or I need to use the file output node as suggested in the link above and then mix the two files externally? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ You should be able to mix two different layers rendered with two render engines if everything works. It's common practice for example to grab the volumetric fog from eevee (fast and easy) and composite that on a full cyles shot. The link was just for those who has problematic sets-up. $\endgroup$
