Rendering reflections without the opjects


I am rendering a set of objects on one layer and their reflection on the windows behind those objects on a separate layer. I am thinking this will enable me to add glass distortion to the reflection. in after effects. Is there a way to render out the reflections while the objects are not visible?


Take a look at Arnold AOVs and RenderSetup.


This perfectly addresses what I was trying to figure out. Thank you for taking the time to post this.
