I have a scene with interior room design and I created several light setups for it (daylight from windows, powerful electric light from the ceiling, moody evening light from floor lamps). What would be the best workflow to work with that and be able to batch render them?
For now I have each group of lights in different layers. I can then select which layers I want and start rendering. However this doesn't allow me to batch render several setups at once, because there is no command-line to switch layers on/off.
I read about scenes and wondered if making several scenes which would have same objects, but different lights would do. Batch rendering is possible. But I'm afraid that working further on the design, adding new objects etc. will be tricky, as I will have to somehow synchronize all objects between these scenes.
How is this normally achieved?
I need still images only, no animations.
