You can also see your layers in the Layer section of the sidebar.
The layer order in the timeline mirrors the arrangement of visuals in the canvas. Layers positioned towards the back in your canvas will appear lower in the timeline stack, and vice-versa.
For visual layers extended over multiple scenes, the layer's position in the timeline is set by its order in the first scene. This holds true even if you change the layer's position in a later scene.
Adjusting layer order (visual only)
- Right-click on any visual layer and select its new location from the menu options.
- If you have Show all layers enabled in the Timeline, you can simply click and drag the layer to adjust its order.
Layers extended across multiple scenes
If you are working with a visual layer extended across multiple scenes, changing its layer order from the Timeline affect the layers position in all scenes. Use the Canvas if you want to change an extended layer's order in just one scene
