Rendering Different Lighting Rigs
I'm a little confused and was hoping that someone might be able to help.
I'm trying to set up different light rigs for a scene (morning, afternoon and evening), but can seem to not have all the lights render.
I added the lights for the morning rig to a render layer and turned it off, but that didn't seem to do anything.

Render layers seem to be for objects.
If you add a object to a render layer then deselect it then it wont render and visa versa if its the only layer selected it will be the only thing rendered.
Useing this with the supplied alpha would make compositing easier.
Say if you have an object and you set it to render with GI then you could render just that layer and composite onto a backdrop in photoshop or other without having to rendr the rest of the scene.
For more information in the manuals...

Hope this helps somewhat....
