Chapter 5. Layer Basics > Stacking Order

Stacking Order

As you learned in Chapter 4, each new layer in a composition becomes the highest layer in the Timeline window—or the highest in the stacking order. When layers occupy the same point in time, higher layers appear in front of lower layers when viewed in the Composition window. You can change the relative positions of the layers in the stacking order to determine which elements appear in front and which appear behind (Figure 5.5 and Figure 5.6).

Figure 5.5. Layers higher in the stacking order appear in front of other layers in the Composition window (provided they're positioned at the same point in time).
