I am starting working on Blender 2.8, but I can't find the layer panel. Where is it?
Blender 2.8 will re-implement the scene layer system, as it has limitations now. How it will work is explained here: Blender Dev blog.
In the meantime, the 2.8 development version is broken, and is not meant for production use:
- it does not have the old layers controls anymore (they are still in object properties tab though)
- the new interface is not yet fully implemented
When it is implemented and 2.8 is official, this answer will be edited to include how to use the new system..
Click the Collection center icon in the scene menu (top right) which hides the current collection. Add a new collection and work there.
