Layers and Scenes
« on: 2007-07-23, 14:37:41 »


Where can I find a tutorial or information on layers and how to use them? If they are what I think they are then this could be interesting.


Layers are a way to group templates and objects to associate them with a scene for that level.

You access the Layers through the Layers and View Options dialog (L). A quote from the Embrace docs about this dialog:

The Layers tab consists of a list from 0 to 31 that represent potential layers your level can have. A layer is simply a way of grouping sets of templates together that you want associated with a particular scene for this level. Each number has a check box in front of it. Checking a box will display that layer in the editing space. Correspondingly, unchecking a box will hide that layer. The Show Static check box will do the same for the Static layer.

Newly created templates by default will go into the Static layer. If you have one of the non-static layers selected, however, a new template will be placed into that layer. A template may exist in any number of non-static layers, but a template cannot both exist in the static layer and also a non-static layer

You can rename any of the non-static layers. You simply select the line of the layer that you want to rename, type in a new name in the text box at the bottom of the window, and click the Rename Layer button.

For information on working with layers and scenes, check out this tutorial and this one.
