QUESTION
How do Layers work?

ANSWER
Layers are useful for organising your models in large projects. That way you can place all lights on one Layer, all trees on another and so on. If you click on the (+) button you can add new Layers up to a maximum of 20.

The Eye buttons in Build mode allow you to show or hide models.

The Arrow button is for moving selected models to the active Layer.



In Photo Mode you can set the visibility of Layers for each Photo using either the Show Layer or Hide Layer effects.

In Movie Mode, you can also animate the visibility of Layers in your clips with the Show Layer and Hide Layer effects.

A Show Layer Effect only shows the one layer (plus Layer 0 for the Lumion world).  You can only use one Show Layer Effect at a time.

The Hide Layer Effect can be added multiple times to a Photo or Clip, so you can hide more than one layer at a time.
