@nehon said: I'm a bit confused, I'm not sure of what you mean by "clipping" here? could one of you explain? I thought you guys were talking about a clipping rectangle on screen (for UI), and Normen is talking about an arbitrary clip plane in a scene. If that's rendering into a sub part of the screen in a rectangle that you want.... that's a viewport . We do support this kind of clipping (if I get it correctly)
We are talking about a clipped rectangle on the screen. ViewPorts are kind of heavy-weight for that, I think. Certainly more heavyweight than: r.setClipRect();
Because Control.render() is called before we are queued we can’t do the same nifty trick that the nifty layer does.
