Is it possible to get a light source to only affect one object?

Is it possible to get a light source to only affect one object?
I want to lighten up a title, but I don't want everything else to become too bright.

Thanks in advance.

    Yes, the materials controls for every 3D layer have options for whether it will be illuminated, whether it will cast shadows, and whether it will interact with your lights in any other way. So if you set up your layers so the title is the inly thing that is illuminated by the lights, you'll be good to go.
    Another option is to convert the title to a composite shot, and illuminate it within that comp. Then when you embed that entire comp into another scene, the light can't affect any other objects.
