If I want to render the objects in a scene seperately, can I seperate the objects into different layers (or similar function)
and render into different files and then compose it later?
Thanks!

Ok I've not done this exactly but others have. No responses yet so in the mean time look at Matt Object in the Object Properties panel and in the scene editor you can uncheck the item to remove it from the render.

Between those two things, using alpha you can islolate the objects separately for compositing. There's more, like how you deal with the sadows. In the Advanced tab in the surface editor there is an drop down list for how each surface creates an alpha. Look at that for shadow options.

Also when you click on the image drop down in the Image Viewer you will see a choice to view the alpha channel that will get rendered when you save as a 32 bit image.

With this info you can probably figure it out with experiment.

Hopefully someone else will pop along here shortly and nail it.
