After effects started to display 3d layers according to the layer order in the composition instead of z axis in space. For instance, the object that's farthest away from the camera is displayed in front of everything because it is in the top most layer.
I have created a scene of an atom, with a credit card in the center, representing atomic nucleus and icons flying around it as electrons do. The problem is, that icons and a credit card overlap according to the layer order, instead of their actual position in 3d space. Everything looks messed up.
I'm not sure if this is a bug or I'm missing something. I tried to switch between different renderers but It doesn't work. I have another less complex composition in the same project that doesn't contain this issue. Is there a setting somewhere that determines rendering order of 3d layers? !
Thank you in advance!
My guess is layer styles are applied
from the help files:
Just like 2D layers, other types of layers also prevent 3D layers on either side from intersecting or casting shadows on one another:
Thanks a lot! I've deteled layer styles and adjustment layers and 3D order seems to be restored.
