I am hoping someone can help with me this. I have text objects in my blender file which are positioned in front of other grease pencil objects (along the y axis). When I try to render the animation, the text does not show up. I noticed it is being blocked by the colors I have filled in the grease pencil objects. It's a 2D animation.

Not sure if I have some incorrect settings on the text objects.

I have uploaded my blender file here if anyone can help:


I have also pasted a screenshot of what it should like and a screenshot of what actually shows up after rendering.

What it should look like

What shows up after rendering

Thank you


i just downloaded your blend file, rendered and got:

enter image description here

so either you changed something in between or a miracle happened or is it not ok?

  • $\begingroup$ That's strange, what you have is what it should look like, but I just tried rendering it again and mine still doesn't show the text. I even downloaded the file I uploaded just to make sure. Since it works for you I wonder if there is some overall setting that I have that is off. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I couldn't figure it out from my laptop, but I tried rendering it on another computer and it worked fine, without changing any settings. Thanks for your help. $\endgroup$
