    Hi forum

    I've been reading though the treads about GUI layering and as I understand graphic elements are rendered something like this:
    • 3) 3D scene objects
      2) GUITexture, GUIText
      1) UnityGUI objects
    I need to create an interface where I have costume line (currently created with LineReneder) that needs to go on top of the Unity GUI objects.

    How can this be done?

    Thanks in advance

    As far as I have been able to tell, controls created with the new GUI system are *always* drawn on top. Also, there's no way to force another order.

    You can achieve what you want by using a rendertexture. A cool feature of rendertextures is that you automatically get an alpha, so superimposing the view from your custom camera (that presumably only displays your lines) should be easy.
