[Answered] Animation clip plane - specific layers

Are you able to apply a clip plane to a specific layer? I am currently creating a construction sequence animation in Lumion 8.5 and would be great if it can be applied to only certain layers.

Many thanks in advance.

Hi Alex Paul, no - that's not possible. Sorry about the inconvenience.

Hi Alex Paul

As a possible workaround (not tested), 2 pass render:
1. Turn off all other Layers you don't want the Clipping Plane to apply to.  So only the objects in the required Layers that are going to be clipped are visible.
2. Render.
3. Do the opposite for Layers.  Turn off the Layers that were clipped in 1., turn on the rest.
4. Render.
5. Blend the two videos in a video editor.

This is not convenience to composite two or three video together, because the Material IDs channel's quality is so bad even I save it in png sequence. The Sky and the land cannot hide so it has a Material IDs and it always having same color with the models, when I use AE to keying the unused part and finally the model disappear too!!   ???

It would be wonderful if lumion can do such things.
1. clipping plane can use in specific layer.
2. upgrade the anti-alias of the Material IDs channels.
3. The Material IDs color can be set manually, or set it by material to make sure there is no same color in one channel. :-P

Hi AskarLi021, that doesn't sound right.

Which version of Lumion are you using?
