OK, I just found this topic: http://www.thearender.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=93&t=9739&start=10
So I think nigec's .doc file there will answer alot of the following.

I'm trying to understand this thread
, and this question probably won't make any sense. Its embarrassing to pose the question since you guys seem to have got it so easily, but here goes...
I've looked at nigec's r2d2 scene - still not sure what it is showing. But looking back at chrisapeze's scene...
So am I right that everything in christapeze's car plus gingerhouse scene EXCEPT the car was previously rendered so as to get some sort of bitmap representing the background (kitchen + gingerhouse + tablecloth)?
And the only real meshes in Christrapeze's scene is the toy car and (possibly?) a plane with the tablecloth somehow mapped onto it?
And whatever camera and lighting christrapeze used to render the background needs to remain untouched when rendering the scene with the car ? I know I'm way off base..
Or where have I gone wrong. I really need some basics here...
