is it possible to preview the selected renderlayer in the viewport? I have a couple of renderlayers with override materials that I would like to check in the viewport, but it seems previewrender ignores renderlayers and material overrides completely... Thanks

You can preview the current selected render layer by enabling Render Layer button located on 3D View header:

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, or you can drag the header with MMB to see it. :) $\endgroup$ – Leon Cheung Jun 9 '16 at 14:49
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, I know... but if that button was visible by default I could have found it myself. I just didn't think to scroll that bar to look for it. Anyway, thanks. $\endgroup$ – knekke Jun 9 '16 at 14:56
  • $\begingroup$ Haha... indeed. $\endgroup$ – Leon Cheung Jun 9 '16 at 15:13
