I actually have another question related to this one.

since by now the only way by having normals in my case.. is by using 
takes... but obviosuly on the "normal" pass I also have the Color 
raster.. is there a way to set mantra to render JUST normal raster? (or 
any other raster.. but just alone without the Color).
