Hello,
as the "Render Selected" option works, Im guessing this is pretty possible to do.

So the thing is that Im working a lot on product shots, almost mainly. Im often met with this situation where I need to render

X parts of my shot, so in this case take a look at the image.
I will have to create 4 masks for:
- Small product
- Product Family
- Product Family with Shadow/Reflection
- Product Family as JPG as it is

Ok so just use masks and shut up right? Yeah. no. I will have to create similar sets for 6 products in multiple sets with similar requirements.
So X products times X versions times 4 options, so my request?

Please add "Beauty" cut or BeautyMask option so that would allow us to create this automatically. I created thousands of images so far and this is just part that I can't automate easy. This would be a good option for some of my future projects where I will have 14 x 16 x 3 +/- 20 (approx 672 renders overall) Doing similar stuff for all of them? Bruh...

Let me know if I understand you correctly:

What you would like to achieve in the end is something like LightMix, but for objects/groups instead of lights?
So you would like to render in one go:
- full beauty pass
- another element, where only object A is visible against transparent background
- another element, where only object B is visible against transparent background
- ...

Is that correct?

Pretty much, but just as a separate Render Element where you add objects the same way you would to CoronaMask
but this time coloured, so you don't have to cut out each set manually.
