I'm rendering static images in Blender under Windows 10 and I want to have all the render layers available for post-processing, etc.
My problem is that the render layers are available only so long as the .blend file remains open after the render; once I save the .blend file and close Blender, then re-open the same .blend file, the render layers are gone.
Image/Read Render Layers (CtrlR) does not recall them.
Output/Cache Result is enabled, and while I have an cache folder path defined, that folder yet remains empty.
Meanwhile ever since enabling Output/Cache Result my .blend files have grown from a few dozen MBs to half a gig each, so I'm assuming the render layers I'm seeking are buried somewhere in the .blend file, but again: How do I access them?
