I have been practicing with the Render Layers and Render Passes.
The Master Layer Render took 28 minutes to render the one frame.
Characters separated onto layers it took about 2 hours to render.
I've used Toxik/ Composite to put the scene back together again.
There are still issues with the image, overlaying, alpha channels
and how to get the shadows looking correct.
But the background building seems to have composited together ok?
but there are still some issues with the ground shadows
and the alpha with the roof beams.
The best thing is that I only need to render the extra passes,
to composite and complete the scene.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
