Layer Visibility (Editor)

Available in: Matter: Editors > Layer Visibility

Layer Visibility is a control panel for the visibility of geometry and lighting layers, as well as lighting layer colors. These types of layers are managed directly in the Shaper sidebar, without the help of a dedicated editor. Layer Visibility affords an overview of the hierarchy of layers and provides controls over their visibility in Matter.

The editor is organized into two tabs: Geometry and Illumination. The layer hierarchy is displayed in the corresponding tab. Next to each layer's name, an icon indicates the layer's current state: eye_mini_3.png visible or eye_mini_1.png hidden. An illumination layer's color sets are indicated as enabled or disabled in the same manner as in the Shaper sidebar tab.

The visibility of lighting layers is a viewport-level property. When the first viewport is opened, the visibility state is initialized with the state set in Shaper. From then on, modifications made in Layer Visibility are applied both to the active viewport and to the visibility state saved in Shaper. When additional viewports are opened, the last saved state in Shaper is used.
