ok how to explain - i want to render out a pass with just 1 object layer but where its hidden by the other layers if all the layers were rendered i dont want to show

hmmmmmmmm basically i want the engine glow without the engine as at really high res the image process glow is bugging out but since its a blurred glow effect i figured i could render at lower res than the ufo and them comp it over the top

anyone know what i mean?

I agree - the telepathic support from this Newtek site is truly awesome. They should promote it as part of the app :D
