[SOLVED] How to display an object only on a different object


Recommended Posts


what do you think, what is the best way to show this green tree only at this gray box. I would like to hide every pixel which is outside the box, even if I will rotate a camera.


This plane will be pickable and the user will be able to move it above 3D object, but it is necessary to hide pixel outside.

I tried to make a layer/foreground, put there a texture made by RenderTargetTexture of gray box and mask every planes which I will add. But this solution is not good, because in this function I need to have an URL of the image, not a texture:

new Layer(name, imgUrl, scene, isBackground, color)

Do you have any ideas how to get this effect?

Thank you in advance!

I don't have any idea, how it is possible, but I had implemented this in my project and it didn't work.

After many hours I decided to download this scene from Playground, and test it on my HDD, and it didn't work too. It is a big surprise for me :/ 

@Deltakosh, do you have any idea what is going on here? :) 

Chrome doesn't show any errors.
The only error message I got, was in Mozilla Firefox console, but I doubt that it is related to this issue.

I have tested it on this sample scene on my HDD, and it WORKS! So I think it will be similar in my project, I will check it tomorrow ;D

I didn't know about this parameter in engine costructor, but I tried to set stencil's flags by myself, and there was not any effects:

engine.isStencilEnable = true;
engine._isStencilEnable = true ;


Anyway, thanks a lot @Deltakosh!!
