Default Layering Objects 2.4 - 02-27-2015, 04:14 PM

How do I layer objects? For instance, I am trying to put a chair at the far side of a dining table. The chair is in the right place but it has the appearance of being on top of the table. In Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro I would lower the chair's layer in the layer tree to make it appear to be at the table and pushed in. How do I do this in Alice 2.4?

Thank you for the help!

In the Scene setup view: Make sure that the arrow is selected, click and hold the mouse button on the chair, and move it to the proper location.

The other options include UP&DOWN, rotate, resize, etc.

Remember that you are working in a 3D environment, so layering might not mean the same thing. You'll see what I mean by pushing the chair into the table.

If your are just starting to work with Alice there is a good chance that the chair is not where you think it is. Go to the scene setup view and select the quad view a lot of times I find that things are not where I thought they were.
