Hi,

I wrote last week about a lighting problem that occurred in a 2.5D project I'm working on. After trying many possible solutions that didin't work, I found that it wasn't lighting, but rather, as the camera moved, 2.5D objects I'd created (in this case a chair and a trailer), which were not intersecting with each other, would appear to intersect. This intersection looked like a dark shadow moving over the chair, but was actually the side of the trailer creeping over it as if I were moving the chair into the side of the trailer. This definitely some sort of bug, but I haven't found any sort of work around. I'm including a current render of the project as a reference.

Thanks for any help,

Eric

Would be interesting to see the project file. 3d can be quite complicated and from what your saying, I suppose you have precomposed 3d layers, with the collapse transform on. Maybe the objects are in different 3d spaces?

Maybe this page has some solution?

Hi Anders,

Thanks for your thoughts. I have been playing with the layer order, but will look again based on the article you referenced.

Best,

Eric
