render passes are different elements a complete picture is composed of. Render passes can be: shadows, reflections, colour, light, etc. for example...when rendered in passes, these elements are isolated on different layers. Back in the compositing software, you can put them all together again which leads to the final image. When rendering in passes, you can control every aspect of the image in your compositing software without the need to re-render the complete image again by adjusting the different elements (passes) seperatly. Like different layers in photoshop...

Render passes are usually used for high end film post production where render times can be very very long. It saves a lot of time and can lead to better end results because there is more control over the image.

hope that helped ;)

what he said...

its always best to render out different elements and combine them later. It give you much more control over achieving the final look you want.

He who says it cannot be done is interrupting the man doing it.

If anyone can find the tutorial about the little yellow robot which opens up and walks around, that explains the uses of render passes brilliantly.
