How do I split viewport and place a different empty image in each one? As of now, when I place the empty in one view it appears in the other.

By the way please remeber to place each of your ref images into different collections and your objects into a seperate collection and you can view the panel by pressing N on your keypad

  • $\begingroup$ No, that is not what I am looking for. I will do a screen record. I think that will show what I mean much better than I can explain in words. $\endgroup$
