    Hello

    I am attempting to rotate 2 different GUI Boxes's on the Z Axis. Each box will have a different Z axis value. The following image shows how I am trying to make them appear(I made the following image in photoshop):

    My Problem: I am unable to rotate my boxes on the Z axis without clipping occurring. I can successfully rotate my panels on the x and y axis but not the Z without clipping occurring. Also can I have 2 boxes with a different z rotation using GUI.Matrix (I've read in other questions that this isn't possible)?

    This is what happens: http://answers.unity3d.com/storage/attachments/10994-capture.jpg

    Any ideas how I can achieve the rotation that is shown in my first image?

    Code (csharp):
    1. void OnGUI() {
    2.         Matrix4x4 guiMatrixOrig = GUI.matrix;
    3.         GUI.matrix = Matrix4x4.TRS(Vector3.zero, Quaternion.Euler(0, 45, 0), new Vector3(1.0f, 1.0f, 1.0f));
    4.         GUI.Box (new Rect (10,10,400, 400), "Loader Menu");
    5.         GUI.matrix = guiMatrixOrig;
    6.     }

    I've run into the same issue and found no way around it. It seems the clipping planes of the GUI-Camera are very close together. For something like this, I'm afraid you might have to use some other system (like NGUI) instead...

    Unfortunately, you cannot rotate UnityGUI in 3D. You can rotate and resize it in 2D, so "skewing" is the maximum you can get. You cannot put it into the perspective.
