Dear users,

I would like to ask for your help. I have made a 3d composition with multiple cubes on it. I want to orbit around these cubes. Unfortunately, I can see one cube trough another. It will not help to change the layer order, as I will be seeing the cubes from different perspectives.

How can I prevent the cubes to be seen trough each other?

Here is an example:


Kind regards,

I believe that your cubes were created in a precomp and then nested in a 'final' comp. Once you've nested the comp, switch on the Collapse Transformation switch so that 3D interaction between the cubes works as expected.

There are lots more info on working with 3D layers in AE here -
