Recreating layers

Is there anyway to recreate a layer and it’s functionality (but not it’s contents).

I’d like to add in a layer of landscaping for high quality renders but keep it hidden from all my other scenes.

I have a layer 'Alternative car parking" that is mostly hidden and would like my new layer “landscaping for render” to show up in the same scenes. At the moment the only way I can see to do this is to add a new layer and then (painstakingly) remove it from every scene I don’t want it to show/slow down editing for.

At this point, I am wishing I had organised my layers so that I had more mostly ‘Off layers’ to repurpose …

Thank you

I think you are wanting Auto-Invisible Layer.

Thank you!!
