I understand that there’s no (supported) way to re-order tracks; but it is my understanding that tracks are meant to be rendered in Z-order in the same order as they appear in the timeline. However, it appears (in 19.02.28) that tracks are rendered in order of their addition to the timeline, irrespective of where they are inserted.
Can someone confirm this behavior, and whether it is expected? Is there a way to insert a video layer below the existing layers?
What you have described is what I expect, but not what I have observed. See here in this screenshot that the shadow track is rendering over the gameplay track, even though it is placed under it in the timeline.
That is most unusual. I put filters on the tracks and everything worked fine. Here’s a screenshot with all filters disabled. Yellow on the V3 is showing in the source viewer.
What version of SC are you using?
I just duplicated the entire procedure in your video, step by step, and the upper track does not render. It’s probably because you insert the middle track. In my original project I created all 3 tracks before putting the color clips on them.
Thanks. I’m glad I’ve finally managed to convey what I’m experiencing.
I know I can do it by creating the tracks ahead of time. But it appears that render z-order reflects the order of addition, not the order of the clips in the timeline. So it’s impossible to insert a track underneath an existing track.
Assuming this is a bug, what’s the next step? Is there a way to report this? (I’ll try to find out myself; but I was thinking that bringing it up here in the first place would do that.)
