Exclamation Plzz help..Render passes and Final Gather (Maya)

Hi guys,

Good morning..

Please help me with this simple query...

I have a scene where in I created following Render passes on each Layers of its own..(Beauty, Matte, Shadow, Reflection, Specular, Ambient occlusion, Luminance)..and then I have FINAL GATHER checked.

Now I am confused, do we need to have final gather only on Masterlayer or any other Render pass layer. What if I use Layer Override option..? and uncheck FG on all render pass layers?

To my guess AO/Matte render passes does not need Final gather, so what about other render passes..guide me thru any tut which can get me out of this confusion.

thanks in advance.

U guys really rock btw.

You'll need final gather on for Beauty, Luminance and Reflection.

Final Gathering is helping with the indirect illumination which is visible in these three.

You're correct that you do not need FG for Matte and AO passes and can use a layer override to disable.
