I have a completed scene in which I wish to render all the animated characters separately from the stationary environment, with everything but the characters being transparent (including everything that might cover/overlap parts of those characters); like masking out all of the environment parts around them and then rendering only the character and their animation as separate PNG frames.

I haven't worked with layers or the compositor very much and I can't quite figure out how I would go about it. If there is an easier way of only rendering the single mesh with the environment masked out do let me know!

Example of what I wish to achieve

You can put all the objects that you want to be transparent in the same collection and activate the Holdout option for this collection:

Don't forget to activate the Render > Film > Transparent option:
