View Full Version : accessing Layer.visibility property

05-05-2009, 03:54 PM
in the maxscript reference there is a property .visibility but it doesnt seem to work... I can cycle through each object and play with the visibility but I am wondering why in the first place the layer.visibility property doesnt work? I am surely doing something wrong or setting up wrong controllers!.

it should work fine, but you have to set the rendering properties of the objects in that layer to use 'by layer' as well.

General Node Properties<node>.renderByLayer Boolean default: true

When true, Rendering will be controlled by the Layer.

little problem I have run into!!! The visibility wont update on all objects when I am looking at only a Shaded View in viewport i.e. without wireframes.. But if I have wireframe + shaded it works fine....

How can I fix that?
