How to overlap some parts of shapes but not the entire thing.

Recommended Posts

For example, if i was doing a ring around a planet like saturn, how would i make part of that ring go behind the planet, and the other part come in front to give it a realistic 3D effect.

Hi NinoVSoriano,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Here's two ways: you can either duplicate the planet then edit the duplicate leaving just the part needed to cover the ring, or mask the part of the ring you don't want to see.

Sample file attached showing both ways.

1 > select curve and change color creates weird look

2 > alt klick on curve and move it also looks weird


I´m not using the latest beta though so maybe this is already fixed, maybe you could check this out
