Anders Hattne3d layers - Collapse transform - layer order problem
by on Aug 11, 2014 at 8:27:14 pm

hi!
I'm about to embark on a project involving a 2 FullHD screens next to each other with a grid of round 120 images - all collapse transformed 3d layers.. totalling more than 1800 images in the whole project.

To make this manageable I rushed headfirst into batch creating the precomps - only to realize later that when they scale up, the top most layer will overlap the others despite their position in 3d space.

Is there ANY way to work around this (without creating more layers)?


If not, I'll just modify my script to create only the backsides for my images, but I will end up with double layers in my comp.
Nightmare :-D !!!

Try turning the layers 3d in their precomps.

Thanks for your input guys, but I guess there is no way with the collapse transform on.
...I'll get it done splitting the layers and using this method!

Um, don't scale them all the way up to 100%? Something less than 100%, perhaps?
