Wow. I can’t believe I’m posting this. It’s been months since I’ve touched SU (that’s how it goes with me), and I have troubles with seeing underlying structures through other elements as I zoom and change view. Imagine a stud wall with 1/2 sheetrock or plywood on it (so there is depth): I can see the studs from various positions. I remember this problem but can’t remember the solution, and am a little amazed that I just spent 15 minutes looking for it here and on google and can’t find it. I think there’s a weird name for the effect. This is a little maddening. Here’s an example:
The red is an applied material. Everything is set at 100% opaque. Wow, this is driving me nuts: of course I should remember the answer, but it should also be more findable. I suppose it might be this computer, it has a low-quality on-board video card. Thanks for any help!
