Never show on Layer X

New releases and general discussions.

This would be super useful as well - if there is a smart way to do is, I wouldn't know how.

Basically, I'd love to be able to spawn an object on layer 1 that overlaps my ground completely, but never have it show on the background.

So it'd be like:

Always -> Never show ImageX on LayerX

Hope that makes sense. It'd just be helpful to isolate sprites to certain layers.

There is an "Is on layer" expression that you can use.

Yes, but it's the action I'm concerned about. Basically what I need is a feature that would hide the pixels of an object on layer X, but still show it on all other layers.

I think there is a way of doing that using masks, erase effect or there's also some layer option that limits things on that layer from effecting another layer. But I've only heard of that in passing and no idea how to use it. I think it was newt that mentioned it once.

You would need a dummy, but since its visible on other layers...
