Maybe you know it but maybe someone else never visited this site: www.3drender.com
So Jeremy has writen an old tut but still a must read :

great, thanx for the info.:)

i also have a couple of questions about the ways within maya and mental ray to set up passes. ive been searching the help files, but as we all know it a little confusing, and i cant figure out why the option to turn on RGB channel, or Alpha channel is grayed out within the render globals under Image File Output. only the Zdepth option is active.
