output drawing order

Hi!

So there are a few threads that have already been started on this topic, and it's a tricky one to answer at the moment.

Towards the end of this first thread explains my current knowledge of stacking order within Marionette, and links to

this thread, which contains a file with Stacking Order nodes.

In short, to summarize without visiting the other threads:

Stacking Order does not behave as expected when in an unwrapped network, it can vary in a number of ways. This is being looked into by myself and one of the Engineers for a solution.

In a Marionette Object or a Wrapper, stacking order appears to behave as intended.

The second link will bring you to a thread where Stephen has posted some stacking order nodes - "Send Nodes" (near the bottom, posted on Jan 07, 2016)

The thread links go to the old forum. is there a way to easily find these threads again?

When I have several objects that are created by a network and can't be ordered the way I want them initially, I will put them through an ordered list at the end, then through a group node, then an ungroup node. This will put them in the correct order as well as a single Marionette group.

My network creates two polygons, that overlap partially. I want one specific polygon on top of the other and I'don't get it...?

just experimenting...

I used an "ordered list" data flow node and placed the 2D objects in the order i wanted them to be drawn. it worked just fine

Maybe I missed something, but it didn't work. I placed a 'ordered list' node at the end. Connected the polygon to be on top to item0 and the second to item1 but it doesn't help.

I added a group node and an ungroup node but it still doesn't work.

 

Can anybody help?

 

Thank you all
