Function available in CINEMA 4D Prime, Visualize, Broadcast, Studio & BodyPaint 3D


New Layer

Creates a new layer. Alternatively, double-click in an empty space in the Layer Manager.

Each new layer is assigned a random color. You can change the color or name by double-clicking on it.

New Layer from Object Selection

Creates a new layer and assigns it automatically to the items selected in the Object Manager.

Save as...

The Save As command saves the current layer configuration and status of the switches as a layer set. You can load a layer set using the Open command.

If your scene already contains layers when you open a layer set, the layer set will be added to the existing layers.

Layer sets are especially useful in large production environments where complex layer configurations must be identical throughout.


Closes the Layer manager.
