Mix 3D and 2D on screen

Hi I’m new to Leia and my tablet. At one point I saw high-res 2D mixed in a window with 3D on the same screen. How does this work, any limitations?

Hello Mattie,

Welcome to the Lightfield creator community! There are a few ways you can mix 2D and 3D content in Unity.

If you have two cameras with different content, you can explore our Multiple Cameras Example
(Assets / LeiaLoft / Modules / AlphaBlending / Examples / AlphaBlending.unity)
along with our walkthrough documentation here. You can change the baseline on the SceneCamera object from 9 to 0 to create a 2D camera with 3D UI elements.


If you have a 3D tiled image or movie, you integrate that into your scene using our Leia Media example
(Assets / LeiaLoft / Modules / LeiaMedia / Examples / Leia MediaVideoPlayer.unity)
along with our documentation here and here.

Unfortunately, neither will provide a full resolution for your 2D content. If you could provide more details on where you saw this behavior, it would help me assist further.

Hope this helps!

Hi Joseph
Thanks for your valuable feedback! I’ll try this.

On the desktop, isn’t the foreground full-res, yet the background is Desktop in 3D?

Is it possible to split screen LHS full-res RHS 3D low-res?
