NextPreviousHomeMoving layers

booragal | a year ago | 3 comments | 311 views

I know this has been answered a number of times but it doesn't seem to work.
I want to know if I can rearrange layers (like Photoshop)?
I placed a picture layer, and then a text layer which is now hidden behind my picture.
I've looked at some other people on here that suggest using ALT+[ or ALT+].
I have the latest Bluff Titler (Easy).
Agggh! What am I missing here?
Thank you.

Photoshop is a 2D app.

BluffTitler is a 3D app.

In a 3D app, things are visible in front of other things because they are closer to the camera. So what you have to do is to move the layer closer to the camera with its POSITION property. With the default camera rotation this means moving the 3rd slider to the left (or right clicking in the render window and moving your mouse down while keeping the right button pressed)

I was under the impression that Bring Layer forward or back would MOVE the layer in front or behind, but it doesnt do that. What it DOES do is move it in it's layer number order. There's no visual observation.
Am I right?

There's visual observation when using 2D layers. For example when using 2 picture layers, both using the 2D IN FOREGROUND style:
