Would like to piggy back on this thread and say that it is somewhat confusing probably to newcomers trying to figure out why something isn’t showing up in their render. Are the dot toggles in the bottom right more of a legacy thing?
I use the render toggles 90% of the time since I can link then with binds or expressions etc… they end up being a lot more useful I think… However, there are times in the network where I select a bunch of geo comps and toggle the purple render toggle just for testing something and it is convenient for that I must say…
One other thought about light COMPs - there doesn’t seem to be a way to toggle their effect on a render with out manually removing them from the lights field… would be nice if there was a way to toggle their contribution or visibility to the renderer with out disturbing complex render scenes.
just another though to add on!
