Colour-Card Node


The Colour Card allows you to fill the scene's background with a solid colour when there is no background image. If no drawing or colour-card is present to cover the scene's background, the scene will be rendered on a pitch black canvas.

NOTE: By default, the Colour Card has a Z ordering value of 12 Backward. This puts the Colour card behind all elements that have a value lower than 12 Backward. Most of the time, the Colour card will appear automatically behind all the scene elements as they are all set to 0 Backward, unless you have changed the Z ordering of the scene components. If so, the Colour Card will be in front of the elements that are pushed back to more than 12 fields backward.
