hi, I'm new to rendering, I need help with render layers.
I know basic of render layers and I'v successfully generated them also. But my question is that is there any particular sets of passes I should render for my animation like AO, Diffuse with shadow or without shadow etc. I'm confused what all passes should I render for my animation in general. I don't want to complicate my rendering as I'm doing it for my animation showreel. Any help will be appreciated.
thanx in advance.

Yes you need to associate passes with each layer.
If you are compositing your shot then you should know your passes otherwise ask the compositor.
The most common passes are:
Diffuse
Specular
Reflection
AO
Shadow
And Indirect
though you can increase the passes according to your requirement.

If you really want minimum then don't render any separate passes. Render your beauty and keep it at that. You're not trying to show rendering knowhow if you are making an animation reel. No need for over-complications. :D

Yeah I used to work in MPC Delhi and you have a brilliant memory.
I don't know your scene lighting and render layers but since you want it to be minimum ,I would recommend atleast render AO pass which also helps you in enhancing your presentation.

It's great to know you are in singapore.
