  • You can disable 'Illuminate by Default' with Maya lights.
  • You could also add them to a display layer and template them.
  • Or just hide the lights.

I'am trying to find out if there is an option similar to 3Ds Max only in Maya 2019 where you are using the scene lights but you do not want them visible in the scene for render. In Max you select the light or any object for that matter and go to the Render Pref. and under render uncheck the corresponding box for that object. So when you render everything is there EXCEPT what you unchecked and still have the illumination but not the light.
